    Hi, I wanted to develop an UI application with multiple containers(multiple screens). which is the best one to go with, GUI Application or GUI Application with UI Designer. This is shown by IDE when you try to create new symbian project.

    Re: Gui application selection

    -> "GUI Application" doesnot provide any template for screens/views while "GUI Application with UI Designer" does provides.
    -> With "GUI Application", you have to create controls (like button, list box etc.) by coding yourself (APIs are available for that). But "GUI Application with UI Designer" provides you the facility of drag&drop so that you can just select your desired type of control amongst the various kind of controls available.
    -> If you choose "GUI Application with UI Designer", then the corresponding code is automatically generated for you (cleared by the 2nd point also).

    Thank you, not_dying if the only difference between GUI and GUI with User Interface is drag and drop of controls. then we can use gui with user interface for "applications with multiple container & Screens". Right?

    Hi Lokesh,

    If you want to multiple screen in that case you will need to handle different menu options.... Create a project which has a view and container..each view associated with containers....now you want to how many screen...you will create same number of view and container...and registered these views in appui class and when ever you will need to switch screen in that case only call activate/deactivate function of view....

    For example: Have alook SDK example multiple views....
