Get application icon


is it possible in API version 4.5 to get the icon associated with an application?

Lets say I want to get the icon for the module net_rim_bb_task_app and display it on my form?


PS: Awesome new forum! Keep it up!

Re: Get application icon

Check out the JavaDoc for the ApplicationDescriptor class - in particular, the getIcon() method.


You can retrieve the ApplicationDescriptor for a given module via the methods in the CodeModuleManager class (hint: getModuleHandle() and getApplicationDescriptors()).
