    Question Proper "Homescreen Widgets" Documentation

    Hello there!

    I've had a great concept for a homescreen widget in Symbian^3, i registered myself, ran through all the help pages but couldn't find any help.

    The only thing i could find was the outdated Homescreen Widget Guideline for the Nokia N97 and a chinese homescreen page, where i sadly couldn't read anything, which is indeed very disappointing.

    Is there ever going to be a proper documentation on how to create Homescreen Widgets for S^3, with any sizes and content, just like the delivered belle widgets "music player; calender; oder email" ?

    Any other help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    Yes i tried but it doesn't suit my needs.
    I want a way to change the widgets size and the things that are in it, not only a bit of text and a picture, i want it usable. That you can click certain things in it, like the Music Widget that comes with Belle.
    I can't find anything here that does help in doing that.

    Thanks for the reply

    unfortunately there is no way to do "any sizes and content" widget for Homescreen. Only template based widget (wrt widgets) can be done.
