    Hi kitgarong,

    in WRT widgets you can store values by using the setPreferenceForKey() method.

    To start other applications check out the AppManager API:

    I have the same question.
    @jappit: I know you can save data with the setPreferenceFor Key() but how can I keep my widget running so I know it's time to launch the other application?

    Thanks

    Pam

    Hi Pam,

    a widget can run continously only if the user chooses to leave it active in background. Note however that there's a limitation about background widget, as explained here:

    http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph..._BrowserNG/7.1

    To programmatically send a widget to background, this article should help:

    Hi KiT,

    there's no API to automatically startup a WRT widget: you can do this with standard Symbian C++ apps. If you want to play with C++ a bit, you could build a small C++ app that is executed on startup and immediatly starts your widget.

    About SQLite: there's no such support in WRT, but you can find it in Qt:
