    Re: Application name not change

    Hi Balaji,

    Please describe your problem in detail. Do you want to change the name you see in the Applications menu? If so then, did you change the string in *.rls file? You would find qtn_caption_string in the *.rls file, there you need to change the string with your desired string.

    Hi,

    you mean *.rss file? or *.rls?

    Where can I find *.rls file?

    In *.rls file, wherever I change the string, it resets to previous one when I compile.

    sorry i am using Qt for s60. I will shift this question to the corresponding thread. Meanwhile if u know how to do that kindly help me.

    Hi Balaji.S.R,

    Please stop multi-posting. It is not a good idea. Cross-posted: http://discussion.forum.nokia.com/fo...d.php?t=183266

    First of all decide, which technology you are targeting and then ask in that particular section on this Discussion boards.

    Ok. I have moved your posts from Symbian C++ section to this "Qt for Symbian" section. So let's continue here.

    Re: Change application name

    Well, I tried it again and it worked again. I modified the strings in the *.loc file and it works fine. Though I found following glitches:

    1 ) Even though I changed both Short caption and caption strings, I could see the new name only in the "Applications" folder where you can see other installed application with their icons. It did not change the name of the application in the caption(where we open the application and see in the status bar)

    2) Somehow it caches the old name. It means that I had to restart the device to see the new name.

    PS: I am using Carbide.c++ v2.4, Qt for Symbian 4.6.1

    Hmm. This is really strange. Now perhaps, you should upgrade your Carbide.c++ to version 2.4 and see this. http://blogs.forum.nokia.com/blog/lu...-carbide.c-2.4
