    [Announce] View MBM 1.00

    Hmph,

    Had to write helper application to solve an annoying problem: I can't draw a checkbox! Well, at least I thought there would be something better "inside the system".

    http://jouni.miettunen.googlepages.com/viewmbm
    http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph..._in_a_mbm_file

    Some of the things you can find inside:

    • What and where are some of the built-in MBM files
    • How to find more
    • How to get graphics out from MBM
    • How to create a listbox with icons
    • How to handle icon mask
    • Error codes: [Errno -25] KErrEof, too many menuitems
    • Some issues with MBM compatibility


    There seem to be quite a many problems with using built-in MBM, not sure if this is a good idea at all...

    Cheers,

    --jouni

    hello Jouni

    Seems to be another good example.

    it will really help others and will save lots of time.

    I know, I know... It's really weird why avkon2.mbm is different in S60 3.1 emulator vs N82, which also uses S60 3.1. That file should have been frozen by the time SDK content was frozen. Guess this explains why there are so much similar graphics in so many files.

    Btw while writing something else, I figured out a better way to do View MBM. So there's an update planned. If some parts of v1.00 look weird or mysterious, please let me know. Will write better comments or more readable code!

    ...the sad thing is I wrote this app to complete another app which I wrote to solve a problem in third app, which is STILL pretty far from release...

    Troubled,

    So JOM, which mbm did have the checkbox icons for your listbox? I'm asking cause I had to roll my own checkbox icons and they work great on anything but N95 8GB with the black theme...
