    Arrow Ways to detect if widget is running in miniview mode?

    Hello,

    I want to detect if my widget is working in miniview (home screen mode).

    Which is the best way to perform this action?

    I found this for STEW application.

    http://library.forum.nokia.com/index...465F6A738.html

    It uses

    Helper.isMiniViewMode();

    but it doesn't work.Anybody has any idea?

    Thank you very much.

    the example is made for the purpose of showing on how the miniview is used, thus it should indeed work. Thus try the original codes without modifications, and see that it works..

    Thanks symbianyucca,

    but have you tried this method on N97?

    this.getScreenSize()


    doesn't return actual widget screen size,indeed returns nothing..

    in addition to that there is a method like this :

    isMiniViewMode: function() {
    var size = this.getScreenSize();
    return ( size.height < Helper.MINI_VIEW_TRESHOLD );
    }

    what does this keyword here indicate?
    when ctrl+space after this. no method like getScreenSize() comes in code assist list???

    Thanks.

    Hi onur_ersen,

    that 'this' keyword actually points to the Helper variable itself, that also defines the getScreenSize() method, that you should port to your code to make the isMiniViewMode() method properly work.

    Check out also this related thread:

    Thumbs up Re: Ways to detect if widget is running in miniview mode?

    Thanks jappit.

    Now it works with that piece of code in thread you gave.

    I searched whole day in that wiki and I found nothing about this Helper class.

    there is lots of reference to that class (especially in STEW demo) but it doesnot exist.

    It makes the developer get a little confused in my opinion..
