S60 ROM applications have changed in S60 2nd Edition. Some of the documented IDs launch different views. The same functionalities require new IDs.


  • Phonebook focused view works differently.
  • Calendar application day view works only if the calendar is already open in the background.
  • Camera application has been replaced with Camcorder.
  • Recorder application does not contain Filelist view.
    View activation is a S60 feature and does not work with Series 80 and Nokia 7710.

How to reproduce

The sample application MyView "start recording menu" freezes devices compatible with S60 2nd Edition.


The following code starts the recorder and records immediately:
// Recorder application UID
const TUid KRecorderUid = { 0x100058CA };
// UID for recording view
const TUid KRecorderViewUid = { 1 };
// MessageUid which start the recording
const TUid KRecorderMessageUid = { 2 };

// In AppUi class implementation
ActivateViewL(TVwsViewId(KRecorderUid, KRecorderViewUid),
                       KRecorderMessageUid, KNullDesC8);

The following code launches the Camera:
// Camcorder application UID
const TUid KCamcorderUid = { 0x101F857A };
// UID the camera view
const TUid KcameraView = { 1 };

ActivateViewL(TVwsViewId(KCamcorderUid, KCameraView));
