Look at the screen and make a guess of what is discovered. :D :D

Here's the instructions!

#1: If you go into /usr/SYSqtapp/xe/flows, you'll see plenty of folders there. They are all flow apps. You can create your own too! Flow  is made up of: CSS, SVG, XML, JS. As of now, we don't know the limit we can push it to. However, seeing the apps in that folder, we can deduce that Flowplayer/Faultline is just a flash or maybe svg UI for creating Navigation menu. To run other flow apps, run them using the faultline script. E.g.

Code Select
/usr/SYSqtapp/xe/faultline view:flows/contacts/Contacts.xml

If we overclock our phone a little, Faultline should run good.

#2: Because of our Main Menu is a made up of this CSS, SVG, XML & JS... our Main Menu is extremely customizable! One example is, we can change our sub-menu view into a list with icons. Edit the flows/mainmenu/MainmenuFolder.xml and find class='MainmenuFolder', change it to class='listclass'. There you go, a list view.

But that's not all of it. If you look into resource\skins\default\mainmenu\mainmenu.css, you'll find the reference to listclass. It's actually a CSS(with a weird syntax) and it reference a SVG file. So in theory, if we modify the SVG file creatively, you can get various designs. ;)


SVG & CSS: Gives the design
XML (VIEWS): Construct UI (Using SVG & CSS, SoftKeys etc.)
JS: Controls the UI (Events, Change view etc.)


Having discovered this, I hope we will have someone researching more on this because I don't really have time to. Hehs.
Imagine having a totally different phone menu design. ;)


yeah the icons shown in submenu

can you make it shown as grid?


yes, grid and spinner too. But some item will have no icon: Java etc.



will post it before i go off somewhere. ;)



Damn, that phone rocks....! >.<; I want it so badly.... I love CSS.... And it has JS?? awesome....... :D Is it some kind of webUI Motorola talk about?
Best regards,

nahh.. this is not webui. Sadly. It's probably the earlier version of webui. I mean.. they created faultline menu system and then.. *pops*! 'hey, why not we turn this technology into a widget system?'. Hehe.
