    Active Idle screen

    hi,

    Is it possible to create something similar to the Active Idle screen programmatically?
    Please let me know if some public API is available for the same?

    Thanks

    For providing an interface to plug-ins you can use ECOM.
    For drawing them onto the screen, you can use a simple compound control.

    Thanks for the reply.

    But I dont want to call any plugin's. I want to call some section in my application itself.
    I just want the look should be like the Active idle screen.

    So what kind of control I can use for the same?
    I meant like as we have API's available for List, Grid etc... is something similar available for Active idle screen or do we have to customize some control.
    Please let me know.

    The moment you say Active idle it flashes a trigger for ECOM plug-in, hence the reply earlier :-)

    Grid is something you can try with.

    Also you can implement at least the look and feel with Using a CEIKImage control on which you can use a transparent box like image and then have images for other applications showing up on top of that. And then you can implement the left/right/circular navigation in your code. When the user makes any changes to the application shortcuts much like how we can on the device, you can update your controls and display them again.

    For launching the application I am not sure, maybe you can query all the apps that are there, maintain an array of them and use them to launch the application.

    Cheers,
