    How to create application icon on the menu screen of the handset.

    Hi,

    How can i add an icon on the menu screen of the Handset for my application ?
    so that user just need to select that icon to invoke the application.

    what should be the image format (extension) ?
    How it could be set at the desired place ?

    Thanks,

    Just add an image to your JAR file (just like any other resource) and add it to your JAD file/manifest like:

    MIDlet-1: AppName,/icon.gif,com.company.AppName

    I guess it depends on the device, but I usually use GIF files for application icons. The size also differs for different devices. The Nokia 6230 uses 16x16 pixels and the 6600 for example 48x48 (i believe).

    You have to do nothing to make it show on the phone. The MIDlet manager will take care of that.

    BTW, some phones won't show the icon, whatever you do. Nothing you can do about that.

    Icon for the 6600 has a bug,it has the large size that 29×29,if the size of the Icon is larger than that,the Icon can't display correctly.

    btw, you mentionned the 6230 as using 16x16 icons, do you know the size of 6230i icons ?
    it may be different, as the screen resolution is larger (208x208), but i need confirmation
