    Smile Customize UI solution

    If you are trying to change the list skin,
    If you are trying to change the height or font color of a list item,
    If you are trying to display text mixing with images, even animate GIF,
    If you are trying to display input fields just in the view,
    you will find it's very difficult or even impossible to work it out with default components.
    I think 'draw yourselft' is probably the only answer of these questions, and of many other question on this board.

    The UI design nowadays is getting complicated and rich, especially after the launch of 5th Ed. The traditional Eikon and Avkon framework can not fully meet the needs. The new widget technology is cool, however, it has some restrictions. If you want to build UI just like how widget do, and keep the advantage of using native SDK, have a look on this open source project.

    http://code.google.com/p/htmlcontrol-for-symbian/

    This open source project provide a CCoeControl derived class which allows Symbian C++ developers to build custom UI or to render simple web page by using HTML and CSS. By using it, you can build complex UI easily even without any knowledge of Symbian drawing APIs. Now you can focus on UI design, without being limited by technology. Any type of UI we are able to build!

    S60 2nd Edition
    S60 3rd Edition

    Re: Customize UI solution

    Its nice to have new stuff, but if you keep on making new threads advertising it weekly, it will start looking like a spam. Anyway, wouldn't it be great to have awiki pages made for it, so people could get the information from there..

    Re: Customize UI solution

    No problem, but usually Wiki would be better place for people to find infromation more easily. And when having a thread on the topic already, it is advised to continue on it, rather than start new ones...

    I actually had quick look on the site, and when I have more time will have better look, sofar it looks rather interesting, so would be nice to have a wiki page for it..
