    AFAIK you can not add custom indicators to the place where the BT etc. indicators are shown. anyway you could make your own indicator window on top of other windows, wiki has examples for it, thus have a look into there.

    http://www.newlc.com/How-to-draw-an-Icon-on-the.html may work for you. it does not add any thing to status pane but still show a indication that your application is running.

    Re: Indicator on my Phone's Indicator Pane

    Hi rao n SymbianYucca,
    Thanks for reply
    I have seen that example on NewLC but it does not fullfill my requirements.
    Although i have created an app with the help of that newlc example in which i used FocusObserver class n in that class i implemented EEventFocusGroupChanged n in that i used the uid of that screen in which i have to show my icon like my phone book uid is 0x101f4cce,
    but problem is that i dont know my phone's indicator Pane book uid (i.e main window of my phone where all the icons appear like BT icon).
    So can you help me out plz.

    I think those indicator were called soft-indicators, and AFAIK, you can not add custom indicators into it. you could in some case show one of the native indicators, for example, I think wiki has code sample on showing the Email indicator, though, then again, you should not even use it directly, but instead you should use the interface to tell system to display it...
