Fresh from the oven, we have just published the LWUIT Developer’s Library. LWUIT Developer’s Library describes how to use the LWUIT for Series 40, the port of the Lightweight UI Toolkit for Nokia’s Series 40 phones.
LWUIT for Series 40 brings a number of improvements: several Series 40 platform features have been integrated to it, the style and functionality of UI components have been changed to match the Series 40 look and feel, and the performance has been optimised. Also the Resource Editor tool has been updated with Series 40 changes.
A common practice has been that the new features would always provide a fallback mechanism. Even if a feature was not available on the device, the application would still run gracefully. The wrappers are transparent to the application.
The library, or course, includes a UX chapter that describes how LWUIT UI components should behave or how a component should be adopted in case it is used with Series 40 phones.
Try it out and let us know how it works for you!
