Suggest me please...

I have seen the channels Hulu plus and VUDU ...they have made many implementations and the UI looks great...Menu bar at the top and menu items, filter categories with dropdown menus along with them, gridview of the image posters and many in one screen....can anyone suggest us how to do all those in one screen....

Re: Suggest me please...

Those two channels are not using our SDK. Vudu is an NDK c++ app, and Hulu is... its own unique animal. You can do the same sorts of things using the SDK however, using the following interrelated ccomponents:

roScreen
roBitmap
roRegion
roCompositor
roSprite
ifDraw2d
roTextureManager
roTextureRequest
roFont

Some good examples of what you can do with those:

The latest version of the Break.com channel
DailyBurn
Classical TV

If you don't need to slide things quickly around the screen and are comfortable with a somewhat more "clunky" User Interface that can look good but doesn't provide as slick experience, you can also use roImageCanvas, a couple of great examples of what can be done with that:

the CBN channel
the NFB channel

(Both built by TVAppAgency)
