Notification icon not shown

Hi to all.

In my android application I have 3 different notification with 3 different icons. On my Blackberry Q10 device the notifications are shown in the Blackberry HUB with the right content (the "String" part) but the notification icon is missing.  In Blackberry HUB a yellow bell is shown instead of my icons.


I need some custom code in my android application in order to set compatibility with BB hub?

I guess you and me have the same requirements. I also want custom icon instead of bell icon in bb hub. I am not even sure if that is possible from android APIs.

Skype application shows the custom Skype notification icon, not the yellow bell...so it's possible in Android SDK

It's actually not possible...

I won't get into why it works for Skype other than it's an exception Smiley Sad

Re: Notification icon not shown

Here's how Skype does these things: 





"To that end, we are working closely with BlackBerry to open up some of the integration points available to native apps in the OS so that they can also be used by the Skype application and we expect the app will allow Skype users to see notifications, to start the app from the Hub, and to see their Skype contacts in the native phone book"
