    Displaying custom text on E52 instead of date

    Hi,

    I'd like to display custom texts on my E52 in place of the date.
    I've created a midlet, which does this as a stand-alone application, but how do I display it in the header section of the main screen (in place of the date)?

    Regards,
    Lmocsi

    Hi Imocsi,

    I am afraid this is not possible. The way the date is displayed is controlled by the native "Date and time" application and it is not possible to override the functionality of the native application.

    Hi Skalogir,

    Then is there any possibility to display my text somewhere on the main screen?
    I'd like to display it at every startup of the phone.

    Regards,
    Lmocsi

    Not possible with J2ME, as far as I know. With Symbian C++ you could do an app that autostarts, and one that writes on top of the main screen.

    Auto start up on device boot is a feature only supported on manufacturer/operator domain in Java, but not for 3rd party developers.

    How do you do that?
    Are there any links to it?
