Tips to start coding for Symbian



  • Hi,

    Last weekend I had my first experience with development for Symbian. It was a little bit painful, and I documented the problems I had here: http://www.esdrasbeleza.com/2012/01/13/the-first-tips-youll-need-before-start-programming-for-symbian-using-qt/

    I think it can be useful for somebody that wants start coding for Symbian. Please feel free to report any corrections (corrections for English errors are welcome too :) ).



  • Problem with remote compiler!? Strange!! You should have given a trial to fix your prob with that.

    Using QML is always a better idea than Heavy Qt Widgets,in my opinion.

    Using stacked widget is easy. But its not a Must to do!



  • Having a list of "common pitfalls", especially from a beginners point of view, is always a good thing.
    Thanks for sharing!

    You're right, Rahul, it's not a must, so I changed my text. But it was the best solution I've found in some forums and examples.

    And yes, I had problems with remote compiler, and the error message didn't give a lot of details, so I couldn't find its reason. I will report an issue suggesting more verbose output.



  • :) And liked the 'positive and negative' button part.



  • Displaying a widget with show() or exec() works for me, with same work around:

    @MyWidget dlg;

    #if defined(Q_WS_S60)
    dlg.setWindowState(dlg.windowState() | Qt::WindowMaximized);
    //dlg.setWindowState(dlg.windowState() | Qt::WindowFullScreen);
    #endif

    dlg.exec();@
