    Home Screen application on 5th Ed?

    Hi,

    I am interested in getting my application on home screen as we have the facebook application on N97 home screen. Please let me know,
    1. how can we achieve the same? Do we have need to write any plugin? please provide any sample application or link if feasible.
    2. Can I remove any other standard application and can place my own application (Progrmamatic way would be more expected )?. The applications shown on My N97 (India) phone are:
    Alarm, applications, Contact Bar, email bar (or not sure if it is Media bar), facebook, and NDTV (a news application)

    3. On facebook/NDTV, applications I observe that, both of them are showing a different look (controls) on Home screen Vs the controls used in their actual application screens. So please let me know how can i decorate my application separately, while showing it on the mobile home screen.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Jupitar

    Hi shafalig82,

    thnx for the link, it is really helpful. Need more info as:
    1. Please provide me any example application or link, if possible.
    2. <It might be a silly question> I have not worked with widgets. So wanted to know, is it possible to communicate b/w a home screen widget and the actual Symbian native (ie written in Symbian C++)application in unbiased manner? I mean to say, lets say that i have one input the differnt input a values to my actual application depending on the area selected on the home screen widget? and that to when my application is not running in Background ? Please provide me any link further on this if feasible.

    Use the home screen publishing API as documented in the N97 SDK. There are also examples provided to show how to do it.
