    Question Idle screen with home made progress bar

    Hi all,

    I am a newbie in Symbian world, so maybe my question is stupid.

    I have an application that uses network to send data. When sending these data, i would like to put the application in background, and let the user do what he wants. But to inform the current state to the user, i would like a little progress bar (or somethingelse) in a corner of the idle screen.

    I know how to put my app in background, but i do not know how to create the little window (or progress bar, or scroller-text, ...).

    Have any suggestions ?

    Thanks in advance
    Tim

    check this place:
    http://www.cs.helsinki.fi/u/mraento/symbian/

    There is a good example code on drawing into the idle screen, that could also be implemented with servers.
