    Is it possible to develop a triangular or circular layout in the SDK development program?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Think you need to explain more...

    Do you mean in the way it translates between views, or do you mean how to use circular buttons etc?

    Yes I sure will!

    For example, when a user uses Eclipse and is required to use the basic and rectangle layout. I would like to know how you change the rectangular shape to triangular or circular.

    Basically, just wondering if there's a way you can change the "original" layout of the rectangle, to a triangle or circle.

    Thanks!

    All regions when programming are rectangular, you'd use an alpha image to do otherwise.

    The alternative is to program your own widget and handle the maths yourself, however that will still technically be in a rectangular region.

    Oh okay! So there's no way to change the output screen to a triangle?

    In short, no there is no triangle / circle layout, but you can mimic items to look / appear as if a triangle / circle.

    If you were to show an example / mock up of what you're after then maybe a solution is available, e.g. an alpha png with a circle on it as a background.

    TBH your re-explanation of the OP was basically the same...
