Re: App Icon not shown on Simulator

Without it, your app will not have an icon, splash screen or know which tab to be placed under (e.g. games, tiliity, etc.).  Obvious, it works without it, but I dont know if it will install for the end user without it.  Best to include it and re-submit a signed version.

 

Be certain it is in your BAR file.  It does not get automatically included unless it is in the list of files to be included (along with your icon and splash screen images).

Re: App Icon not shown on Simulator

Regarding publisher name, we can mention it in copyright field. before I was using wrong name in this field and hence the app was not able to sign. But when I assigned correct company name, it gave me a signed .bar file. Believe me, the signing process did not create any error and I got the message saying 'app signed'

 

I am really confused now, if I should again compile the app adding blackberry-tablet.xml file in addition to normal app.xml file! If I have to, is it all what it contains

 

<qnx>
  <initialWindow>
    <systemChrome>none</systemChrome>
    <transparent>false</transparent>
  </initialWindow>
  <publisher>o2 interactive</publisher>
  <category>core.utils</category>
  <splashscreen>assets/splash.png</splashscreen>
  <icon>
   <image>assets/logo86.png</image>
  </icon>
</qnx>

 

What would go in category field if its game? And also what is Splashscreen?What is max dimension of this image?Can I skip this and leave it blank?

 

I am sure you all must have authenticated this process, but I am still curious to know about any document which mentions about this inclusion of tablet.xml file!

 

Has anyone of you submitted signed app this way and is approved on app world?

Re: App Icon not shown on Simulator

You need to put your own publisher name that matches the signing process.

The splash screen is the size of the device (1024x600).  If you leave it blank, the default BB splash screen will be shown.

Re: App Icon not shown on Simulator

Thanks a lot for all your quick replies.

 

So I should settle with the following table.xml file, considering using default splash-screen?

 


<qnx>
  <initialWindow>
    <systemChrome>none</systemChrome>
    <transparent>false</transparent>
  </initialWindow>
  <publisher>o2 interactive</publisher>
  <category>core.utils</category>
  <icon>
   <image>assets/logo86.png</image>
  </icon>
</qnx>

Re: App Icon not shown on Simulator

You need to change the publisher to yourself.

It is up to you if you want to create your own splash screen or not.

 

And the file is "blackberry-tablet.xml".  You called it "table.xml".

Re: App Icon not shown on Simulator

If your icon still isn't showing try putting it in your src folder and name it "blackberry-tablet-icon.png". I know others have had success with their own file names and putting it in the assets folder, but for myself it has only worked with that name and in the src folder.
