    Get S60 application's image

    Hello!
    Is there a solution to get the thumbnail of a S60 application in my homescreen widget. I am developing a widget similar to the shortcuts widget.

    Hi microsoft2,

    there's no inbuilt API to get the app icons in WRT. You could think of building your own API Bridge plugin to get those icons, but it does require Symbian C++ coding.

    Thank you Pit!
    I took a look on the API Bridge plugin and it seems like an easy task to accomplish, will my widget work in offline mode?

    But what about the built-in shorctuts widget - are they also using https server?
    Does someone knows where is the code for that widget? - I have downloaded symbian pdk3, but I cannot find it.

    If you mean the default app shortcuts in home screens (those with 4 icons), they're not WRT widgets, and they could not be: in a WRT widget on the home screen, there's no way to define different clickable areas. All clicks simply start up the full screen widget, and there's no way to "know" where the user has clicked (so, the click coordinates or the clicked DOM element).

    If you want that kind of behavior, you have to look at Symbian/Qt development.

    Thank you very much!
    I was hoping that in Symbian^3 it will possible to achieve that behaviour without any special private apis.
