    Smile Future of s60 sdk

    Hi,

    What is the future of the s60 sdk now that Qt for s60 is released. Do we still need the s6o sdk for some purposes ?
    The Qt spi seems very powerful. In some news I read that Nokia itself is planning to use Qt internally. What do you
    think ?

    Regards,
    Jaak

    Hi,

    As predicted we will have s60 with QT replacing avkon by 2011. i hope this might give a good ease for developers for not bothering with UI across cross platforms.

    Smile Re: Future of s60 sdk

    Hi,

    But does Qt provides features like low level event handling of windows server events etc like it is now available in the
    s60 sdk ? For eg: key handling from background applications and directly drawing to screen from background applications
    Does Qt allows to access symbian platform features. I think Qt will replace the avkon (UI) sdk and for low level programming
    we have to use symbian sdk.

    Regards,
    Jaak

    Hi,

    If your are writing in user-level programming related with UI, one need to wrap symbian code with QT Ui to be updates to windows server. If you are trying in protective mode programming (ekern/ldd/pdd) then you can directly use the BAK and devkit api's directly as its nothing much related to UI.
