The SWInstallerLauncher API can be used to uninstall a widget by passing the appropriate MIME type "application/x-nokia-widget" and the UID of the widget.

The following sample code can be used to uninstall a widget.

SwiUI::RSWInstLauncher iLauncher;
TRequestStatus status;
iLauncher.Uninstall(status, TUid::Uid(<uid of the widget>), KMIMEType);

Example application

This example application silently uninstalls a widget.
