    Help Message and Scrolls

    Dear Devs,

    I am trying to create a help box, or information boxes.
    dont want to use the information node.
    It should pop up when needed.

    which ui structure do oyu recommend?

    also, (this might be similar).
    when adding items on a container (from carbide)
    then there is no scroll bar created. I only allows you
    to draw in the preset screen.
    Do I need an extra layer on top of the container?

    thanks!

    help box? Maybe you can create a new container for this.
    anytime when you use,you can just pop it up.It's my opinon.
    Best Regard!

    Hi,
    Why dont you try using CAknMessageQueryDialog class for your requirement. You can define your resource for the information popup and fill the information. By defining the correct flags you can also have scroll bar embedded into it.

    Well Yogpan suggestion is good. If want a custom dialog with custom control then perhaps you could extend your class from CAknDialog.

    hi!

    thanks, it worked fine.
    I used the message query dialog, and
    defined a custom resource with only the buttons
    I needed.

    however, I am looking for good readigs regarding query dialogs and resources (perhaps a book).

    any citations?
    thanks!

    hi!
    on my earlier question,

    to be able to have as much text as I want on a view (container), what do I need to do? and have a vert scroll bar.
    carbide doesnt give you the option to do it.
    thanks!

    You could have CEikTextEditor and fill in as much text as you want or CEikEdwin and you could enable scrollbar too if you want. You could go thru this link for sample implemenation
