Archived:TactileFeedback MIDlets crash in S60 5th Edition SDK v0.9 emulator (Known Issue)
TactileFeedback support for touch UI MIDlets is missing from the S60 5th Edition SDK v0.9 emulator.
S60 5th Edition SDK v0.9 documentation defines an extension to the Nokia UI API called TactileFeedback. According to the documentation, "Tactile feedback is meant to give user more clear feeling of touch events, like tapping and dragging. The actual physical tactile feedback depends on the device tactile feedback implementation, hardware and device settings. A device may implement the feedback with different hardware methods, for example, vibra, audio or piezo hardware."
However, when testing this feature using the SDK v0.9 emulator, the emulator will exit abruptly.
How to reproduce
This issue can be tested with the following steps:
- Implement the following MIDlet: Tactile Feedback support in MIDlets in S60 5th Edition devices
- Launch the S60 5th Edition SDK v0.9 emulator as standalone.
- Browse for the MIDlet from the file path ('File' > 'Open...') and launch it. The MIDlet exits with the 'Application closed:' error prompt.
TactileFeedback will be available on the real devices, so this feature can be tested using those.
