    Use of TScreenInfoV01 on Nokia 7650 ...

    I'd like to have a direct access to the screen on
    a Nokia 7650. (I'm using the Nokia Series60 SDK v0.9)
    Here is a sample code I'm using to display some pixels :
    TScreenInfoV01 screenInfo;
    TPckg<TScreenInfoV01> sInfo(screenInfo);
    TUint8 *pScreenAddress = STATIC_CAST(TUint8 *,screenInfo.iScreenAddress);
    for (int j = 80; j < 140; j++)
    for (int i = 0; i < 176; i++)
    *(pScreenAddress + 2*(16 + i + j*176)) = i/8 + j;

    The result is correct on a 9210 device (with 9200 SDK v1.2).
    On a 7650 device, result is strange. Nothing is displayed inside
    the loop, but if I open a Menu, therefore my rectangle is displayed.
    It seems there is a kind a double buffering in the 7650 but not in the 9210.
    Difficult to find any documentation about the TScreenInfoV01 !

    Do you have any idea ?

    Trick Lo.

    no answer, sorry.
    But I'm also very interested in a solution...

    I'd like to know this too, I've been trying to force
    the system to switch buffers but without luck. Please,
    anyone from Nokia, this is essential for creating
    games with good performance!

    In the meantime I'm using the following method
    which proves to be suprisingly fast on 7650 (but
    horrendously slow on any other EPOC system):

    CGraphicsContext* iBitmapContext;
    CWsBitmap* iBitmap;
    CFbsBitmapDevice* iBitmapDevice;
    TUint8* iFrameBuf;

    iBitmap = new (ELeave) CWsBitmap(CCoeEnv::Static()->WsSession());
    iBitmap->Create(TSize(WIDTH, HEIGHT), DISPMODE);
    iBitmapDevice = CFbsBitmapDevice::NewL(iBitmap);

    iFrameBuf = (uint8_t*) iBitmap->DataAddress();
    iPhysStride = CWsBitmap::ScanLineLength(WIDTH, DISPMODE);

    ... draw stuff ...
    // Then blit the bitmap by using a CWindowGc and BitBlt
    gc.BitBlt(TPoint(0,0), iBitmap);

    // Don't know if this makes any difference

    The best way for direct screen access is to use the API for it. CDirectScreenAccess works as fast as using CFbsBitmapDevice and CFbsBitGc. In fact it is the same thing, except that now you are working with the Window Server and there are no complications that would normally come up.

    There is a good document and an example on direct screen access at

    And there see
