I have a menu in my view which is derived from CCoeControl. Pressing the left softkey the menu appears and works. My problem is that when the menu is not active, there is no indication on the screen that there is a menu at all. How can the user know that he may press the softkey to choose from a menu?
Is it possible to display a menubar in a CCoeControl derived view that is displayed even before a key is pressed?
I would say that it is there all the time. You just cannot see it...:-)
You probably draw across whole screen and not just across client area...
So check if you are using ApplicationRect() or ClientRect() or some other Rect when constructing your AppView.
