Width and Height

...widgets for the Vodafone Widget Platform I don't think it's worth mentioning to Opera since the device's Vodafone Widgets Manager behaves different from the Opera one. And also, it can be solved by making a change in the CSS. I've also downloaded all the widgets that other developers submitted into the competition and in some of those I saw the same problematic behavior. I'm curious about you testing the widget on a device and seeing if your layout (width) changes there as well. Cheers...

[VF Mobile Widget Platform] Uploading an App/Widget for specific devices

...widgets that are submitted into the Betavine Widget Competition (including mine) are not specifically created with different screen sizes in mind (meaning incorporating a flexible design) or touch screen support (like the really nice EAGames widget which only responds to key navigation). So having the option to select the devices for which your widget is best suited will be more than appreciated by developers including me ;-) Best regards,Ernst Essay on India Independence Day independence da...

When will the Vodafone Widget Runtime become available to developers?

When will the Vodafone Widget Runtime become available to developers? Hi there, I've been developing my widget using the Opera Widget Manager for S60 on my Nokia N95. I am however wondering if the Vodafone Widget Runtime will have the same dimensions regarding available screen size for a widget or if the space taken by the Widget Runtime bars is different. Besides that, I am also curious about Vodafone specific functionalities/tags that can be used. Is there a date available at which the VF Wi...

Adding a ip adress in the widget packager

...widgets" do you know what shall I put in the archive section? The address is Thanks, André Lourenço I never used the widget packager and honestly I'm not planing to use it ever, because all the things it does can be done manually with even more control (I may be wrong). For instance, if you go to the config.xml and add that IP manually and try your widget, I bet it will work... Have you tried doing it manually? The other query: the archice section is where you uploa...

Widget SDK vs. JIL SDK

...widgets/research That is mainly a "Packager", that will help you to create a widget (either from scratch or based on two tutorial widgets), it also comes with the Opera Desktop and a s60 developer binary (that is enabled to do remote debugging) The JIL SDK comes with an eclipse IDE, and an emulator. The emulator can only run jil widgets, and the sdk is more in a beta stage. Therefore I recomend using the packager for building widgets, and at least have a look at the jil-sdk...

Widgets and facebook

...Widgets (most likely using the Facebook API). Maybe even without a few tweaks here and there those could already work in the Vodafone Apps Manager since it's based on the Opera one. You can find both of them here: Facebook Notifier http://widgets.opera.com/widget/7812/ Facebook widget http://widgets.opera.com/widget/6696/ Once you've downloaded them you can dissect the code and use it to your advantage ;-) Best regards, Ernst

2 questions for mobile widgets : links and language

...widgets that run either in the "Opera Widgets Manager" or the "Vodafone Widget Manager Beta" I can help you out with your question. If you want to open a link in the device's browser you can use the following code: widget.openURL("http://www.website.mobi"); I'm not sure how to detect the device's language and if there is an API for that built in the Opera or Vodafone Widget Manager. I do know however that it can be done, as you said, by looking at an accep...

Query regarding API

...widgets-and-the-mobile-widgets-platform My question was what API's are available for developers to interact with the device. For eg if i need to send an SMS, Nokia WRT widgets have API which when invoked will send SMS. In the similar fashion since the development will be based on opera environment, are there special API's to do similar tasks. I had a look at this page http://www.betavine.net/bvportal/resources/api. Is this is the list of API's i should be referring to ? Thanks

Widget icon doesn't appear

The fact that other widgets (which you download via the Opera Widget Manager on your mobile) do have an icon might have to do with how they are made available for download... Regards, Marco

Are the widgets scrollable?

...widgets scrollable? I don't got any cellphone to test this, but when I run it as an opera widget, I'm able to scroll the widget when it exceeds page size. So the question is this: Is it possible to scroll the widget when running it on a phone? Lets say i have a widget 220x220, and I have an active content of 900x220. Will the user be able to scroll so that he can see the rest of the information being displayed? Hi fmsf, It is certainly possible to have a user scroll through widget content. ...
