    Re: How to make auto start widget?

    Hi Tanya,

    there is not an "autostart" feature for WRT widgets. Only exception is when a widget is added to homescreen: in this case, it'll start automatically as the device boots up.

    Anyway, to achieve your result, you most probably have to write a small Symbian C++ app, that embeds your widget, and that launches it when it's needed.

    Hi

    Thanks your suggestions, doing work second one, but get some problem.

    -Only exception is when a widget is added to homescreen: in this case, it'll start automatically as the device boots up.

    how to do this way, please tell me.

    -Anyway, to achieve your result, you most probably have to write a small Symbian C++ app, that embeds your widget, and that launches it when it's needed.

    Code:
    	SwiUI::RSWInstLauncher iLauncher; 
    	if (iLauncher.Connect() == KErrNone)
    	{
    	iLauncher.Install( path ); // path = widget(.wgz) application path
    	iLauncher.Close();
    	}
    I am able to install .WGZ file from symbian application,
    but do not able to open/launch/execute widget from symbian application.

    have you any idea?

    Regards,
    Tanya

    Is there any mistake? Please tell me.

    Code:
    			TInt retCode = 0;
    			_LIT(KMyExeFile,"APIBridgeTest.wgz");
    			CApaCommandLine* cmdLine = CApaCommandLine::NewLC();
    			cmdLine->SetExecutableNameL(KMyExeFile);//*iAppList[aIndex]->iFullName);
    
    			cmdLine->SetCommandL(EApaCommandRun);
    			RApaLsSession ls;
    			User::LeaveIfError(ls.Connect());
    			retCode = ls.StartApp(*cmdLine);
    			//ls.Close();
    			CleanupStack::PopAndDestroy(cmdLine);
    Regards,
    Tanya
