To increase the size of application icon

[ Edited ]

I want to increase the size of application icon. When i develop an application in blackberry webworks, the icon seems to be bigger. But now when i develop an application in native the same icon seems to be small. Why?

My icon size is 92px X92px  

Is there anyway to controll the size of application icon. I want that application to be installed in BB Bold 9900

Re: To increase the size of application icon

According to the BlackBerry UI Guidelines the icon size should be 114 x 114.

Re: To increase the size of application icon

Thanks for the reply Oliver.

 

Yes i have gone through the guideline and i understand this is for BB 10 but we are using BB 9900.

 

In fact even if we put up a larger icon say 114 X 114 the SDK somehow automatically resizes it into 92 X 92.

 

So let me rephrase my question :

 

Is there any method or solution to increase the size of an BB native application? I dont see any application property in app descriptor file too for icon size.

 

Please let me know if there is any way i can achieve this.

Re: To increase the size of application icon

IN Java apps we ahve:

 

net.rim.blackberry.api.homescreen.HomeScreen.getPreferredIcon....()

 

to determine the preferred size and then we can do

 

net.rim.blackberry.api.homescreen.HomeScreen.updateIcon(..)

 

to reset.

 

Not sure how you would do the same in a WebWorks app.
