    process to use .svg icon as application icon in symbian!


    If I am not wrong, following is the process to use a svg icon as the application icon:
    1. Have an .svg(or .svg-tiny??) icon
    2. Generate .mif using that .svg or .svg-tiny using mifconv.exe tool
    3. Place that .mif on corresponding path
    4. Done!!

    Is that the correct process or did I miss something?

    I am asking this because I am trying to use .svg icon but its coming with a white background like I am using a bitmap. Do I have to use .svg or .svg-tiny?

    Please suggest.

    Icons are referred from your resource file in fact, and the related part of the resource file is referred from the registration resource.
    See http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...ons_on_Devices for these details.

    EDIT1: You have to use SVG-Tiny. A preliminary check you can try is just copying the icon on the device, and opening it from the File Manager. If it gets displayed correctly that is certainly a good sign.

    EDIT2: If the SVG does not scale properly, make sure you have the viewBox attribute set in its header (http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu..._(Known_Issue)).
