HomeScreen & Symbian^3
googling around, and having a look at an experimental code about N97 Home Screen Widget written with Qt, I was able to create a base class for home screen widgets for my C7, using S60 N97 SDK.
There're only few templates available (onerow, tworows, etc.). The most promising is "wideimage", cause I can render my widget in a Symbian pixmap and then draw it in my homescreen widget. It works perfectly.
The only problem is interactivity. I just have a global event for selection of all widget, but I'd like to have coordinates of the touch or whatever. Is it possible?
As an alternative, I'd like to know if there're some other templates available. I mean, C7 has "shortcut" widgets (i.e. four squares), or music player, search, and so on. Is there any place on web where these templates are documented? I tried to find out them, without success.
Thanks a lot,
That templates are designed by their developer. It is not available openly.
I hope you can get for music player.

The development of the home screen of S^3 and S^4 (which was suspended) is part of Symbian platform development. Since the shut down of http://symbian.org/ it is a bit difficult to find documents but soon they should be transfered to http://symbian.nokia.com/
Until then you can search for info in http://library.forum.nokia.com/ or through Symbian Foundation FTP. For details please visit: http://symbian.nokia.com/2011/01/12/access-to-symbian-foundation-ftp/

But unfortunately it only supports 5 types and none of them work like Music Player.
