Example: Using UI components

This guide shows how to use various high and low level LCDUI and Nokia UI components and patterns that can be used in Nokia Asha software platform 1.0.

Designers get an impression of how the components actually look like on the phone, and developers can see how the UI components are used in an application by examining the code snippets. The guide refers to the Nokia Asha UI Component Demos example application that was created to demonstrate the UI components and does not have any actual engine implementation.
