    * when enter in ur app change the skin by desired skin
    * when exit set previous default skin again, and remove ur skin.

    According to some other threads, MAknsSkinInstance::SetLocalItemDefL sets skin components on application-level.

    It is complicated but possible, I can't disclose details, sorry. Try to get direct support from Nokia.

    Note however that before 3rd fp2 one cannot replace skins elements of battery/signal/indicator pane. In practise this means that you can't display those elements on your UI when using custom skin. Coz it would look really bad.

    In 3rd fp2 it is possible to replace all skin elements.
