Hello,

 

Is there a 'SetWallpaper' api available? That will allow you to set the wallpaper from within your own UI.

 

Something similar to this:

Re: wallpaper

You can invoke the pictures app that will allow you to set the wallpaper. Maybe start by having a look here - https://developer.blackberry.com/air/documentation/r_barfile_dtd_ref_action.html

 

More information on invocation can be found here - https://developer.blackberry.com/air/documentation/invocation_framework.html

 

Maybe even invoke the pictures app in a card - https://developer.blackberry.com/air/documentation/card_invocation.html
