    Hi all,

    I have a question regarding the WearOS (2.0) watchface (and I apologize if the question is too basic, but I am new at B4A):

    I understand that the watchface is a service and I can use the library ABExtDrawing and draw on the canvas directly. But is it also possible to create an Activity layout (for easy use of a listview) and load it from the watchface service..? I would like to show a scrollable newsfeed on the watchface and would like to avoid having to simulate the scrolling by re-drawing on the canvas. Or is there a better / more efficient solution?
