    Global alert message in Qt

    Hi I want to know how can we show an information/popup message when an application is running in the background?
    Can we use some kind of alerts vibration etc on any specific time while application is running in background ?

    Qt Mobility 1.1.0 supports vibrartion, so that is possible, note that current version of Qt Nokia SDk has Qt Mobility 1.0.2. New version of Qt Nokia SDK will probably be released soon early next year. About home screen popup notifications, I really don't know. It might be possible, but I am not sure about that. I also would like to know if it is possible and how.

    There's Feedback API in Qt Mobility, but vibra is not suitable for this purpose - you can control vibra only when vibra is enabled in the active profile AND your application is in the foreground - for more info, check documentation of CHWRMVibra (ReserveVibraL() function), which is the Symbian API that Mobility Feedback plugin also uses.

    I'm not aware of any Qt or Qt Mobility APIs that could be used for global notification dialogs on Symbian - you may have to resort to native implementation... unless the Notification API is what you're looking for (real-time push notifications to your application from a network service).
