    Loading toolbar icons

    Is there a way to load Qt toolbar icons from a Symbian application?

    Re: Loading toolbar icons

    If I not mistaken, toolbar icons are stored as Qt resources inside a binary file.

    By the way you can find a full set of icons at the repository, toolbar-* is exactly what you looking for
    http://qt.gitorious.org/qt-component...theme/graphics

    Re: Loading toolbar icons

    Thanks for the pointer. It would be nice to access the system once rather than having to package them myself though.
    Are those themed? If they are part of the Symbian theme I should be able to get them using those Avkon APIs and the proper theme ID right?

    By the way do I need to compile them as MIF to load them or does Symbian now supports loading SVGs directly?

    AFAIK, they are not part of theme, so I don't think that there is any way to access them directly.

    So the best way is compile them to MIF. I didn't see any pointers about loading SVGs directly.

    So if you have a white or light theme you still get the white icons? Weird!
    So themes are more or less broken right? I'll give it a try.

    I guess MIF will do for my purpose. My app is not using theme for now.

    Re: Loading toolbar icons

    I'm not quite sure but looks like currently toolbar isn't themed. Because by default we have only one dark-style theme.
    In the same time on MeeGo we have "inverted" style option, so maybe on Symbian we could find something similar.
