    monitor wallpaper change

    Hi,
    my requirement is to find a way to change the idle screen wallpaper of the phone when the user uses demo version of the application, starting from 3rd MR.
    I've found the link for changing the wallpaper:
    http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...ange_Wallpaper
    But i'd like to monitor or to understand when the user change it, so that i can change it again and make it "sticky".
    I understand that this one:
    http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...s_Settings_API
    is from 3rd FP2 onwards... and i need a solution starting from MR....

    Thank you for any hint
    regards

    You can always test whether it works also with pre-FP2 as well, it is just repository things, so the API itself is there. Though it is always possible that it was introduced with 3rd ed Fp2, and there could be a chance that there would not be APIs avaiable for older platform versions.

    Yes, my concern was that keys aren't defined/used before 3rd FP2.
    There's also an Extended Skin API plugin, available since MR...
    But you are right, as always is a matter of try and see, I souldn't be so lazy! :-)

    Re: monitor wallpaper change

    Final update.
    http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...s_Settings_API
    is the right answer to my question.
    In particular, the example "Retrieving path name of the active background image file in the idle state".
    I've found keys values looking into source tree:

    const TUid KCRUidPersonalisation = { 0x101F876F };
    const TUint32 KPslnIdleBackgroundImagePath = 0x00000009;
    and i've also found a sheet named "keys_aknskins.xls", where it is confirmed that most of the keys are defined since 3.0
