First when I say Native SDK I'm not referring to anythign releated to BB10, I'm talking about PlayBerry Playbook v2.0.
I've been experimenting with the Native SDK and with the provided samples and I'm trying to determine how to write a simple data entry application with the Native SDK? Is that what the Native SDK is meant for? Or am I going it about it the wrong way?
What is the recommended way to write those types of applications? I noticed there is a Dialog Sample and a Keyboard Sample, but that's where the data entry types of UI stop in the Samples section. I was wondering how do I create Buttons, Toggle Buttons, Lists, etc for the Native SDK?

I would recommend using Qt creator to build your application. Then you can release it for playbook (as well as multiple other mobile and desktop platforms) as soon as its done.
If its just a simple data entry application then qml/js may be all you need...
If you decide to update the ui to a native bb10 look and feel (cascades) in the future it should not be too intensive at all...
There are many examples and tutorials for Qt/qml apps, some are even included with the QtSDK.
If you decide to use qml I have ported the symbian qt components over to the playbook platform and they work well, a search here will find them for you.
