    Home Screen Widget like shortcut widget

    Hello
    I am trying to make a home screen widget like shortcut widget by using QT SDK with N97 Home Screen Publisher API.

    N97 SDK has a public API to make a widget, but It only supports 5 templates and none of them like shortcut widget.

    Is anyone has similar experience or can share some information?

    Thanks

    Re: Home Screen Widget like shortcut widget

    Since that is the only API available for Symbian C++, and Qt does not offer any other API for the same purpose, the answer has to be ... sorry, no can do. You will have to make do with the current options.

    I have not seen the app but a WRT based widget may be the explanation for their feature ...

    It seems that homescreen widget APIs are provided by Symbian^3 SDK 1.0, please refer its release notes for details.

    After a quick search in the SDK headers I'd have to say that the release notes is incorrect, the API is not included. Which is OK considering that the API is not supposed to be there given its "platform" classification.
