    Question Create Options window in my Symbian application?

    Hi,

    I have an application that I want to be available as Symbian, Symbian Touch and possibly Maemo. I am a novice in the programming and need to create an options window in such a program.
    - are there any docs about standard look-and-feel approach to create options windows, dialogs etc? Any examples (screenshots, codes etc?)
    - is there any standard button or interface element that I shall use to open such options window?

    Thanks in advance, Askar

    Re: Create Options window in my Symbian application?

    I meant not the Qt interface, widgets etc, but Symbian- or Maemo- device specific UI standard for "Options" part of an application. Shall it be on a certain phone button? Shall it be a standard menu in a standard place? What exact widgets and look-and-feel I should create, if any?

    It should be QMenu with QActions. On Symbian use setSoftKeyRole == QAction::PositiveSoftKey - options. The options window/dialog/tab is up to the application, but good idea is to follow system style.
