process to use .svg icon as application icon in symbian!
If I am not wrong, following is the process to use a svg icon as the application icon:
1. Have an .svg(or .svg-tiny??) icon
2. Generate .mif using that .svg or .svg-tiny using mifconv.exe tool
3. Place that .mif on corresponding path
Is that the correct process or did I miss something?
I am asking this because I am trying to use .svg icon but its coming with a white background like I am using a bitmap. Do I have to use .svg or .svg-tiny?

Icons are referred from your resource file in fact, and the related part of the resource file is referred from the registration resource.
See [url]http://www.developer.nokia.com/Community/Wiki/Executing_Console_Applications_on_Devices[/url] for these details.
EDIT1: You have to use SVG-Tiny. A preliminary check you can try is just copying the icon on the device, and opening it from the File Manager. If it gets displayed correctly that is certainly a good sign.
EDIT2: If the SVG does not scale properly, make sure you have the viewBox attribute set in its header ([url]http://www.developer.nokia.com/Community/Wiki/Archived:SVG_rendering_problems_caused_by_missing_viewBox_attribute_(Known_Issue)[/url]).
