    Re: Adding static Text to a view.. (Information of Application)

    Do you want to display some information about your application displaying several attributes like (file type, duration, time left in case one display in case of an audio or video file) or a help kind of text?
    If you choice is the former, u can use popup list.
    you'll get so many examples on the forum.

    Re: Adding static Text to a view.. (Information of Application)

    As i understand, it is just basic information of your application.
    For this you can:
    1. Create a new view and show the entire content in this view.
    2. Show it as a message note dialog - search for "CAknNoteDialog" in sdk.

    You can check this one: http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph..._query_dialogs
    Or just provide a read-only CEikEdwin in your view.

    Re: Adding static Text to a view.. (Information of Application)

    Yes CEikEdwin is a good idea, only that when down arrow is pressed, it is line by line scrolling.
    Instead you could have a new view do this, and in this view do a DrawText.
    Also based on the width of the text and other factors, you could scroll as many lines as you want.

    So new view is a good option for a full screen view.
    Also edwin or simple draw text is your choice... (if you don't need scrolling at all, draw text is always straight forward)

    You can store them in file and read lines from that file.
