    Graphics question

    Hello,

    I'd like to do render a simple scatterplot in my application. I've been through the appuifw module docs, and I see that it has no graphics support outside of the basic widgets listed (Test, Listbox, etc.) But I also looked at the diagram on page 9 of the api ref, and it implies to me that I could install the beos version of pygame and then use their graphics to do my plots.

    Am I reading the diagram correctly? Or am I headed down a rabbit hole here?

    Thanks,

    Polly

    No, you are not reading it correctly. The graphics support is not implemented yet, and there are no external libraries that we know of that you could simply install to add graphics to Python. The graphics related parts of the diagram on page 9 of the API reference are there just to give a glimpse of where the graphics support might fit in the architecture.

    Graphics support _is_ coming, though. Be patient

    (By the way, what does beos have to do with anything?)

    Thanks for the reply. Any idea when graphics support will be available? Is there a product roadmap we can look at?

    Is it possible to launch a midp app from within the s60 python?

    >(By the way, what does beos have to do with anything?)

    <Gack!> Nothing -- this was me experiencing my own little personal stack overflow. :^)

    BTW, s60 Python is very cool indeed. Thanks for doing it.

    When it's done.

    No. The roadmap is not public at this point.

    Actually, this never occurred to me. Possibly with Content_handler and open_standalone, but I haven't tried it.

    You're welcome
