    AFAIK carbide.ui is still the tool for creating themes. Qt for Symbian is for application development and not for theme creation as I understand.



  • yes you have to use carbide.ui that is available in forum nokia "here":http://www.forum.nokia.com/Library/Tools_and_downloads/Other/



  • As per my Knowledge, through Carbide.UI I can create S60 and S40 phone themes.
    I want to create a theme on QT which can work on all phones on which supports QT framework.

    As stated above Qt is not for creating themes. You can try applying styles to your application to get similar look and feel.

    I think what you mean is that you wan't to create an app with a custom look of your own?

    There are several ways of doing this:

    Create your own components and look with Qt Quick

    Use Qt style sheets

    Write custom widgets using pixmaps and qDrawBorderImage()

    Write custom qgraphicsitems

    Write your own QStyle

    Set your own font and palette on the app

    I am actually talking about things like this on SEE2010 - so if you're coming there I could explain more in detail, or at dev days now in Münich.

    There are benefits and drawbacks with all these different approaches.



  • Guys can you please help me designing a theme for my s60 Symbian device!
    what are the basic steps to do that using a QT Creater.
    Thank you.

    Qt Creator is not a tool for designing theme for s60. You should be using carbide.ui for that.
