Application title wrong in application options screen

Hi All,

 

I am using the Eclipse 1.1 plugin on the 4.6.0 component.  The problem I am having is with the BlackBerry_App_Descriptor.xml settings.  I have set the application title and description in the "General Settings" section.

 

When I run on the simulator the title shows up correctly in the Home Screen and Application Ribbon.

 

However when I open the Application List in Options->Applications, I see my app listed with a title of the cod file name and the configured application title is in () after that.  So if the title is My Application and the cod file name is my_application.cod, I see my_application (My Application) in the list.

 

Looking at the properties of the app I see the title is listed just as the cod name, but it has the correct description.

 

Some items to note:

the cod file name is different from the application project name (is this a problem?)

I configured the output filename on the build tab of the descriptor

 

Since the cod file can't have spaces in it and my application title must have spaces, how can I get the Application list to just show my Title?  I can see that other apps are doing this so there must be a way to get it to work right.

 

Thanks,

 

Aaron

Re: Application title wrong in application options screen

This is an anomaly of how applications are deployed to the BlackBerry Smartphone simulator from Eclipse.  Installing through another means (other than using javaloader and specifying the cod file name) should populate that list with the appropriate information.

 

FYI, here is a list of all installation methods.

Thanks for the info!  Yes we have been loading through javaloader so that's good to know.
