    Hi deepakgmi,

    sure you can. You can let your FlashLite and Symbian C++ apps communicate through local http calls, and doing so you'll have all the Symbian APIs available to your FlashLite layer. These already available frameworks do exactly this:

    * KuneriLite
    * Janus

    Hi,

    local sockets is a good general approach used also for example to communicate C++ to J2ME.

    Re: Flash lite UI

    Thanks friends,
    I have gone through those links. Still don't understand properly or in other word; enable to develop an application. So please you give me some example code like hello world or links.
    Thanks

    Hi,

    It isn't going to get any more simple than KuneriLite. If you need Symbian functionality that isn't covered already by their plug-ins then they have a simple extension mechanism that involves writing paramters to a file and then launching a helper app (which can communicate back via a file). Alternatively Janus is open source - it doesn't have as much already built-in but you can extend it however you like.

    You don't need either to do HelloWorld, so there are no examples that simple.

    Are you a Flash Lite developer, or a Symbian C++ developer or both already?

    Re: Flash lite UI

    OK, if you're coming from the Symbian C++ side then download the Janus source code and have a look at that - it gives you the basic framework for communicating with Flash Lite (basically a local HTTP server).

    There are quite a lot of Flash Lite tutorials and examples available. You can learn that independently since the Flash Lite side of the communication will just be via loadVariables() calls or the XMLSocket class.

    Hope that helps,
