    Open other Apps (Clock and Calendar) from a Widget

    I was wondering if it is possible to call some of the phone's "internal" apps from a widget, just like a shortcut.


    I want to make a replacement widget for the default system's clock (upper left corner, selected in blue):



    But I need to mimic the same functionality, right now when you click the clock it opens:

    The Clock


    When you click the date, it opens:

    The Calendar


    And if you click the Profile, it lets you select another one:



    The latter I think I can do with WRT, but i'm not sure how to do the other 2, opening the clock and the calendar.

    Is there a way to do that?

    Thanks in advanced.

    Hi there

    Are you looking to do this on the N900 (as shown by the pics)? If so, then WRT is not available on Mameo 5 yet.

    However, if not, then you can just use the application launcher API to launch any application you want.

    OK I found it on the wiki, so I'm posting it here in case anybody comes across it:

    the function is openApplication():

    widget.openApplication(HexNumber Uid, String param)


    And the Uid's from the apps I needed are:


    Clock: 0x10005903

    Calendar: 0x10005901

    Profies: 0x100058F8


    Thanks gurmukh, searching for "Launcher API" pointed me to the right direction =)
