I have recently started to try development for the S60. I have an E71, so to start, I wanted to make something that works on my phone as a learning excercise
For the past week I have been reading and downloading stuff, and it just seems endless! For now, I am just trying to develop something very simple, that I can just send to my phone and it will show me my latitude.
I use Dreamweaver CS4, so I downloaded the WRT kit for Dreamweaver. In this very forum I read about APIBridge, which offers Location functionalities, so I thought I needed it. Soon after downloading and coding something for it (WRT + APIBridge), I read somehwere else that packaging with APIBridge is MUCH more complicated, and I had to download the SDK. However, while downloading the SDK, I read somewhere else that I could actually get Location coordinates from my phone using the API 1.0. So I tried doing that, and it works in the Dreamweaver simulator, but when I load it into my E71, it fails. Then I found out that API 2.0 also offers it, and now I am stuck with errors in the Dreamweaver simulator, I'm getting a "Can't find variable: nokia" error.
Can someone please explain to me WHY there are all these options and which one I should use if I want to simply show my latitude in my E71? Why do some things work in the simulator and others not? How am I supposed to know what will work and what will not? I download the Location Widget from here: http://library.forum.nokia.com/index...D6B5780A2.html and it doesn't even work on my phone.
Your help will me MUCH appreciated.
