Collection of tips[edit]

Connection Preferences[edit]

You should not tinker around with CCommsDbConnectionPrefTableView. The same code that works on S60 may run on S80 but won't accomplish anything worthwhile. Instead you should use TCommDbConnPref with RConnection.

CEikAppUi[edit]

A class derived from CEikAppUi has some issues with overriding one the ProcessCommandParametersL methods. It was something to do with the return values, at least ETrue didn't work quite as with S60. Will get back to this when i get around to testing again. Could be that ProcessMessageL override didn't go down too well either so if your app isn't starting be sure to check these methods out.
