So I was just putting together my blackberry-tablet.xml file, when I came across an issue that, judging from my searches, a lot of other people have run into as well. Not setting the transparency tag makes the app background transparent.
My first thought was that I kind of liked it actually. I'm guessing there's no reason why this wouldn't be allowed, but I can recognize that some backgrounds may make certain elements in my app hard to see, so my question is if that setting could be modified by the app, or if it's something that's in the blackberry-tablet.xml only and can only be set at compile time.

That's kind of what I figured. Maybe that's something that can be changed in a later version of the SDK if enough people are interested. I just thought it would be an interesting feature to let the users choose if they wanted. It just lets them use their background as the background of the app basically.

It can be set in both files, and as far as I know, the blackberry-tablet.xml overrides whatever is in the -app.xml file, at least that's how I understood it.
I suppose you could use transparency and draw over it if the user didn't want it, but I don't like the idea of that overhead like you mention.
