A.3 Developing Rich Widgets
To get started, you need a standard text editor, such as Notepad, UltraEdit
( www.ultraedit.com ) or EditPlus ( www.editplus.com ), and the WidSets
software development kit (SDK), which can be downloaded from Forum
Nokia: www.forum.nokia.com/main/resources/tools and sdks/widsets .
We recommend that you have access to the documentation, which can
be found at Forum Nokia ( wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.php/Category:
WidSets ), and to the example applications, which are in the examples
folder of the SDK.
Once you have installed all the tools, open a command prompt, change
to <installation folder> \ devkit \ bin and type devkit .Ifyou
get the options list for this command, it means the toolkit is installed and
working successfully. You then create widgets in a text editor and use
the command-line tool of the WidSets SDK to compile, test, and upload
them. We now create a simple widget application to get acquainted with
the tools, the development process and the WSL.
Some text editors can be configured for WSL syntax highlighting.
Details on how to perform the configuration can be found at: wiki.forum
.nokia.com/index.php/Configuring an editor for syntax highlighting .
