    Toolbar in Symbian^3 like in 5th edition

    Hi,

    is there a way to get the same look for the toolbar in Symbian^3 that we had in the 5th edition ?

    I refer to this example in the wiki :

    http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...-_S60_Touch_UI

    I would have the same look as that ...

    thanks in advance,
    Domi.

    AFAIK if you use standard components, the look & feel comes from the platform. So if you want to differ , you should do custom control for the task.

    Anyway, the point in general is that, users would prefer to have all things similarly implemented, since that makes it easier to learn and use applications. There are plenty of users who are using S^3 devices, and would have never used 5th edition, so they would probably be puzzled to see different design that what they are expecting.

    Hi symbianyucca,

    that's true, I agree with you; at the developer point of view, it's another question : it's harder to maintain but ... our goal is the end-users :-)
    BTW: it would have been interesting to have the example in wiki updated for S^3.

    Re: Toolbar in Symbian^3 like in 5th edition

    back to my first post :

    when using toolbar extension (EAknCtToolbarExtension), the system displays 3 parallel lines, but is it possible to use a personal icon instead of the one used by the system ? I have tried to put bmpfile, bmpid & bmpmask but these give me an error ....

    Tkx,
    Domi.

    Someone will probably ask what error you have got, and when (build? runtime?).

    oops ! that's right wizard_hu_ !! sorry.

    the compiler fails to compile the resource, I have tried several stuff of code but I get always the same error : 'Label not found'

    TBAR_CTRL
    {
    type = EAknCtToolbarExtension;
    bmpfile = FEP_BMPFILE_TOOLBAR; << label not found although it exists.
    bmpid = EMbmFexplorertbCheck;
    bmpmask = EMbmFexplorertbCheck_mask;
    control = AVKON_TOOLBAR_EXTENSION
    {
    flags = KAknTbExtensionTransparent;
    items =
    {
    ...
    TBAR_CTRL
    {
    type = EAknCtToolbarExtension;
    control = AVKON_TOOLBAR_EXTENSION
    {
    flags = KAknTbExtensionTransparent;
    bmpfile = FEP_BMPFILE_TOOLBAR; << label not found although it exists.
    bmpid = EMbmFexplorertbCheck;
    bmpmask = EMbmFexplorertbCheck_mask;
    items =
    {
    ...
