In my humble opinion, a very important element for the design of
applications for small devices is the concept of "stackable windows".
In Maemo is possible to use this with both Hildon and Qt. With Qt is
almost as simple as adding "setAttribute(Qt::WA_Maemo5StackedWindow)" to
the corresponding QMainWindow. AFAIK, Qt itself and the window manager
take care of the rest.
In MeegoTouch a similar function is implemented with MApplicationPage.
Is it possible to do the same with plain Qt code in MeeGo? If not, is it
planned to implement this in the future?
I know that you can have a stack of widgets with QStackedWidget, but I'm
looking for something with support for the window manager, I mean that
it shows the back button at the top, etc.
