I am trying to create a very simple widget, but have reached only dead-ends so far. Before I look up any more information on the net, I'd like someone's confirmation on the following facts:
1. A widget in mini-view cannot have independent buttons / controls. The only action you can perform on it is resize that triggers the "onresize" events. Though, some widgets can do this, like the N97 built-in "Application Launcher".
2. You cannot set the network mode, only read its status. What I need is a way to change GSM mode to WCDMA and vice-versa. According to the documentation, this is impossible.
4. Launch an application just like the app launcher of N97 can. As far as button / control operation in mini-view goes this seems impossible.
5. Prevent a widget from expanding if the user activates it. I don't need the mini-view to expand in full-screen size. The widget has to be mini-view / home screen ONLY and NEVER expand. Given the enforced behavior and the impossibility to add controls in mini-view, this is impossible.
Anyone, please confirm my findings so I stop wasting my time trying to find a way to create this basic and simple widget.
