Re: How to get push notification icon in blackberry like apple push notification icon

Hi there,

 

The code for this is independant of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, so for further questions like this please engage the boards for the technology being used to code the application (web or Java).

 

This can be done, but not from a Browser Channel Push. There are 2 places you can add the notifier:

1) The application icon. For this you can update your icon programmatically in Java using the HomeScreen.updateIcon() method. You would need to construct the new icon with number in the corner.

2) In the notifications section of the device banner. This is where new messages (email, BBM, SMS etc) are shown. To integrate here please refer to the following Knowledge Base article:
