    Question How to develop Belle Home Screen widgets

    What tool should I use to develop Belle Home Screen widgets? Nokia Web Tools 1.2? Why widgets no longer supported in new version 1.5? Is there any tool to develop widgets for newest version of Symbian? Is there any documentation for Belle Home Screen widgets? It is different from Anna and S^3 widgets. Also, can I use Qt Quick / QML in HS widgets?

    Thanks.

    There is S^3 HS Widgets documentation http://www.developer.nokia.com/Resou...3-devices.html
    But there is nothing about Belle.. Its widgets aren't limited by 82x312 pixels and have no background. Hawww, mb someday I'll find Belle HS widget example...

    Nokia has done so much work to bring new abilities to Home Screen Widgets in Symbian Belle... and there are no any docs/examples about it. I don't understand it.

    Anyone?

    Hi,

    Yes, Nokia Web Tools 1.2 should be used to develop Symbian WRT widgets. Web Tools 1.5 concentrates fully on supporting Series 40 Web Apps.

    From point of WRT widget, there is no change between Anna and Belle, as they both have the same home screen size. It is true, that Belle does support apps of different size in a Home Screen, but that does not apply to WRT widgets.

    What comes to native access to HS, Symbian^1 (Nokia N97 etc..) had a home screen publishing API (Symbian C++, not Qt), but that was deprecated already in Symbian^3.

    Br,
    Ilkka

    Thank you for the answer!

    Ok. If different size is not applied to WRT widgets, how can I develop so beautiful widgets like Music or Clock widget in Belle? Should I use another framework?

    Thanks.

    Re: How to develop Belle Home Screen widgets

    Is there any other possibilities in order to develop Belle widget? I mean, I wouild like for example to develop a simple widget as the one for switching on and off Wifi or bluetooth made by just a toggle. Are those belle widget developed in WRT? I would say they are in Qt, but maybe I'm wrong...

    There are some great apps out there using widgets (one for all, fMobi), but there is no guides on how to develop one simple widget...This is really bad

    Maybe fmobi use wrt because the widget look quite simple and look like a widget for app created from nokia app wizard.From someone where i read,nokia never release any API for homescreen widget.
