    How to make a compliant GUI with skin?

    Hi,
    In S60 3rd ed all apps use skin and we have to rewrite our apps to use skin as well, but how can we do it if only a fraction of standard UI elements support it? The documentation mentions EAknEnableSkin, but it only affects Form and a handfull of other controls, but other controls and, most importantly, dialogs are still displayed on white background or, evern worse, on a garbage background. I see other people also strugling with this issue, but their posts remain unanswered.

    What to do? Should I abandone all standard controls and reimplement the whole GUI by hand?

    Thank you
    John

    Hi,

    Can you post your code? Are you setting up the object provider chain properly?

    Regards,

    Thank you for the response.

    > Can you post your code?

    My code is a simple dialog with few pages.
    Are you sure you want me to post all of it?

    > Are you setting up the object provider chain properly?

    Who knows what "properly" means in Nokia SDK when most of API is undocumented? I tried calling SetMopParent on the dialog, but didn't observe any effect. The dialog pages remain transparent and display various garbage. Some controls are transparent, others - white.

    Note: I am not the first, who complain about this. Other people faced the same problem and didn't get any answer, for example:

    Thank you
