    you mean the application icon ?
    It is defined with registration resource file in 3rd edition devices, and with aif file in earlier ones.

    i think the question meant how to get the icon in the shortcut bar in the standby screen.

    Well i guess the user has to choose it from settings, i don't know if any one could programatically add it to shortcut bar directly, as far as i know, not with public apis atleast...

    Yep, but you could get access to the functionality through API partnering.

    Re: How to create application shortcut ??

    but should this be allowed,
    i mean user has the option of selecting only 6 app shorcuts, and on installing a new app, if it overwrites any of my selected shortcut, the application is not doing the right thing...

    i mean strictly it shudn't go past signing, shall it requires to be signed

    anywayz as for possibility, as stated by Yucca, through partnering, you could get the apis...

    Signing would look at it and decide if it was likely to impact users negativly as there are a number of test cases that will need to be passed.

    For example if it just put it self at the first option without prompting the user to do it I exepct it would be rejected, where as world mate asks you if you want to put it on the front screen and it puts itself at the end.

    Anyway you need to make a business case and justification when applying so you had better have a good one.
