    Does transition work in homescreen?

    My homescreen flickers white background when updating even if I use the transition effects, should they work in hs at all?

    Hi LyhjeHylje,

    I've never tried using widget's inbuilt transitions on home-screen. If these don't work for you, you could try by using some JavaScript frameworks (e.g.: mootools) to implement them.

    Thanks again for your advice jappit. I haven't used effect libraries because I thought they use heavily things that wrt does not support.

    LyhjeHylje,

    you're right: heavyweight transitions should be avoided in WRT widgets. Anyway, some classic fading/sliding transitions can be surely implemented in a nice manner.

    Hello,

    All sorts of animations should be avoided in homescreen mode, unless they are really needed to achieve good user experience.
