    Standalone app and icons file (mif) location

    Hi,

    I have a Python standalone app here with UID from the test range. I build it using ensymble of course. I want to display a Listbox control with icons. If I put the icons file (mif) into the apps private directory (c:\private\<uid>, it's where ensymble puts application files), I can't get them to work. No error is reported but the Listbox control displays blanks instead of icons.

    However, everything works fine if I move the file to E: for example.

    One solution that comes to my mind would be to copy the file before using to D: (ram-disk). I don't like it since it's a bit hackish.

    I think the file should be in the resources directory, however, ensymble doesn't provide any option to add any files there. Maybe it could be added in next version? What do you think jethro?

    Or an option to add icons to the default mif file (the one with menu icon) would be usefull too.

    Or maybe I'm doing something wrong here?

    TIA for any suggestions.

    PS: I'm using N73 and the latest PyS60.

    Yes. That and automatically placing PYD-files in /sys/bin is something I have thought about for quite some time.

    In the mean time you can unpack an Ensymble-generated SIS file using SISInfo, add your file in the resulting directory structure and re-pack it with Ensymble's simplesis command.
