QtMobility and notifications

  • Hi,

    I have a question to the Qt Mobility team. Are there any plans for Qt Mobility API to provide support for notifications ? Notifications that "can be used to inform the user about an event or display some form of information without getting in the user's way" ? Right now this is platform dependent feature ( Maemo uses libnotify, on MeeGo Handset it is MNotification (?), on Symbian I have no idea yet :) etc. ).
    We are thinking about implementation of it but we don't want to duplicate the efforts...

    Best Regards,
    Pawel Kurdybacha

  • Hello Pawel,

    This sounds like a UI element. Shouldn't this be a question for Qt proper?


  • Yes, you are right that notification popup is the UI element - different on different platforms.
    Behind this UI elements should stay some notification back-end (daemon service or something) which receives notification requests from client applications and delivers them to system ui notifications widgets.
    I thought that some common API for this back-end for all platforms can be useful and allows the developers to write more portable applications.
