[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


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...


Dynamic icon

...widgets overview that you see when you start up the mobile widget manager. The use case that you describe sound to me more like something that you can realise by making use of the "docked mode" that widgets support. More information about this can be found here: http://dev.opera.com/articles/view/widget-modes-docked-widget-and-more/ and here: http://dev.opera.com/articles/view/adding-a-docked-mode-to-your-widgets/ When you run a widget in the Vodafone Apps Manager (which...

Forcing a mobile device/handheld to landscape?

...widgets over the past months ;-) The main difference between this forum and the dev.opera one regarding widgets is that the Betavine forum's widget category is mainly focussed on discussing widgets that are going to run on a mobile phone in the Vodafone Widget Runtime which is based on the Opera Widgets Runtime (also Web-Runtime widgets are discussed here). On the Opera forums you can also find a lot of useful stuff, but in some cases the information there is aimed at widgets running in th...


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...


Is insufficient runtime space detectable by widget?

...Widgets run on the Opera Widgets OS, so that must have been taken into account when the limits were defined, so you can't really use the same numbers as native C++ apps. Did you find what the defined limits for widgets are? Hey Marco, Regarding the RAM consumption I have the following information: "The suggested memory consumption should be lower than 2250kB and the maximum acceptable memory consumption range is up to 6250kB for a Vodafone Widget" If you're not working o...


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...

Opera version 10.51 (and probably higher) for Windows & Vodafone widget development

...widgets do not connect to the server any more. You can install the Widget Emulator, and then deploy your widget inside it. I have my own Ant file to copy the content of the widget to the deploy folder inside the emulator (my route is 'D:\\Documents and Settings\\EvolvE\\Configuración local\\Datos de programa\\Widget Emulator\\widgets\\'). When I make some change, I just have to click the deploy button in Eclipse, then the refresh button in the emulator, and that's all. Hope it helps I had the ...


Adding a ip adress in the widget packager

...widgets" do you know what shall I put in the archive section? The address is 208.76.245.226. 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...

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


Testing a widget

Testing a widget Hello, Im trying to install my widget in a nokia 6210 navigator. The phone recognize the .wgt as a "zip" file and i can see all the files of my widget.
