I have started learning the BB cascades a few days ago and I am currently going through the tutorials.
I installed the simulator version 10.1.0.807 (running on vmwareplayer). I use QNX Momentics IDE, on win7 64bit.
My problem is this: when I try to run applications that take up entire simulator screen, I only see a portion of the application screen, displayed on the simulator.
1. Pull my beard - sample application; when I run it on the simulator, it only displays the guy's head, so I can't really pull his beard because it's not visible and not reachable on my screen.
However, if I open the layout file using the IDE's preview, I can see it perfectly fine.
2. Speedwriter sample app, Starship settings sample app have the same problem; the bottom part of the layout doesn't fit inside the simulator's screen
3. I have done the layout tutorial with the cows (the one that is supposed to demonstrate the difference between layouts) but I can't click the buttons at the bottom of the screen, because they are not being displayed. Same with the top text label.
The weird thing is that if I remove the middle container with the 3 different containers for the layouts, I am able to see the top container with the text label and the bottom container with the buttons; as soon as I add in the middle container, I lose the others.
Please note that everything looks fine in the IDE's preview.
I tried to change the zoom attribute of the simulator window, using the controller, but nothing changed.
Any tips would be appreciated, as I don't own a BB device at the moment and I would really love to test out the features.
Thank you very much in advance!

You're probably using Q10 simulator (for device with HW keyboard), and the samples are for Z10. Download the another simulator and they should work properly.

You were right, thank you very much.
I have downloaded a couple of simulators, but they were all for the Q10 Device (with physical keyboard), which is why my application main screens were not displaying correctly.
I have finally downloaded the Z10 simulator (full touch screen device) and now everything is working fine.

I hope my reply is not too late.
Look at the icons next to the download links - one is the Z10 device, one is the Q10 device with keyboard.
