    Create icon outside the phone screen?

    How to create icon outside the phone screen, when the application is already running? (such as air column, battery life, the name of the telephone network, ...)

    the soft notification icons are well defined set, and AFAIK you can not add any custom icons there.

    Anyway, you could always try making floating window to show your icon on top of other stuff

    What applications, doing what ?'
    in case I have misunderstood you, you could maybe explain in more details on what the actual use case you want to do, and if you have any example apps that are already doing it.

    that looks like a floating window to me.

    Would suggests using Sprite-animations for non-touch, and semi-transparent windows for touch. Basically reasoning being that non-touch devices do not have working transparent windows, and Symbian^3 will lose the sprites time-to-time, due the lack of possibility to actually set any Z-Orderings for them.

    You could very easily try your favorite search engine. for example with Google you could try writing transparent window site developer.nokia.com
