    I have already read this document, but i can't understand the meaning of homescreen widget, what i'm expecting from my readings is that the homescreen widget is a widget that could be displayed in the device homescreen, am i true ??

    Hello Yosr Eman,

    You are correct.
    In reality Home Screen widgets are constantly running. When the user clicks on the miniview(on home screen), the widget receives an onresize event.

    Hope it helps,
