Hi, as usual I seem to be spending more time smashing my head against the dumb brick wall of carbide than getting on with my development.
I have Carbide 2.0, build 014
I have created a project - S60 with UI designer
I have got code in there doing what I want except that I would like a text window on the UI so I can display the results of the operations I have performed (using menu options).
So I open the UI in the 'designer' and see something that looks a bit like a phone screen, has a title, menu bar (not the one I want - I have to do some code level hackery to get the menu bar to be correct) and a pane with 'No data' on it. The UI was created as a 'form' (stupdily I thought it might be useful as I could add text boxes etc. to a form can't I??? )
I have a 'palette' of things I can 'add' to the form pane (well some of them can be, the others error instead!)
The palette has:
a single 'controls' - Popup Field Text
some editors, Avkon Integer Editor, Date editor, duration editor...
some menu things - menu bar, menu item, menu pane...
misc - a web client!
notes and dialogs - confirmation query....
status and control - Context Icon, Navi pane image, Navi pane text
Navi pane text seems on the surface to be closest to what I want, but I can't drag it onto the window
I guess that installing QT may have been my mistake??? I haven't a clue, but as normal S60 is hardly open to innovation if you can't do even the simplest things with it!
If anyone has a clue what to do I would be greatful, otherwise I guess its another 5 or 10 days of reinstalling and cutting and pasting from one project to yet another new one until by magic it might work. This is not just frustrating it is making me want to find the guy in charge of Nokia and nut him!
