    Re: How to design Qt's layout in Symbian

    You don't say how the layout is "bad", but keep in mind that you bump into all sorts of limitations on the small screen that will make it behave differently from a PC application. Some widgets can only shrink so far, and, eg, an 8 point font on the PC is twice as big (in pixels) on the small screen. Unless there's a lot of "air" in the layout to begin with, it's going to break.

    (I don't even try to use a layout manager in most cases -- it's faster and less trouble overall to use manual layout.)

    Showing many things in a small screen, with a variety of UI components offered by Qt, its really difficult to choose how to design the UI. But careful consideration about the usability of features in the application and how the end user would approach it, could just help in designing better Qt apps.

    In your particular case, would you mind posting some screenshots of your application on the emulator.
