Changing name of application icon which appears in blackberry device-- Cascades

Hi All,

 

I have imported a sample application in Momentics IDE.  When i run that application on blackberry z10 its displayed in menu list with name as "XYZABCDemo",  now i wish to change its name to "XYZ". I changed the names in .pro file and also change the name in bar-descriptor.xml file. 

 

Please tell whats the correct way to change the name of file.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Tushar

Re: Changing name of application icon which appears in blackberry device-- Cascades

AFAIK you only need to change the bar-descriptor... I changed this:

 

    <name>CustomDataModel</name>

 

 

to this:

 

    <name>
    <text xml:lang="en">Custom Dayta Model</text>
    <text xml:lang="en_AU">Custom Dartar Model</text>
    </name>

 

and I see the change straight away when deployed...

Re: Changing name of application icon which appears in blackberry device-- Cascades

Hi,

 

I have changed the name tag in bar descriptor file as below:-

 

<name>
<text xml:lang="en">Calculator</text>
</name>

 

But still same issue is there . when i launch the application on Blackberry Z10 i am getting the name same as previous one "CalculatorDemo".  Do i have to change names in MakeFile and all.

 

Please tell where i  am going wrong.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Try to change it by Momentics IDE helper.
Click on bar-descriptor.xml select tab Localization, add languages and names of your app

Hi,

 

You shouldn't need to touch makefiles.

 

To try and find what is going wrong - do a full clean - then a build - and export.

 

Unzip the produced .bar and compare its bar-descriptor.xml to the one you've been editing - I'm interested to hear how its changed.

 

Thank you.
