I need to show device homescreen as my app background screen. What would be the best procedure to follow ?
Does it possible to take snapshot of device homescreen when we launch the app(third party application) using default camera.
Or any other suggestion because I need to show the device home screen as my applicationscreen's background.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thanks for your replay
I may need to be more explanative in this. When a launch my application, a starting screen will be like jacket zip, when I unzipping programatically, I need to show the device homepage as my screens(jacket zip screens) background image.
As my knowledge, once if we start any third party application, we can't see the device home screen unless we close it. Then no way to show the device home page as my background/transparant screen. For this we may need to get the snap shot of homescreen when we launch the app and should be used as backgroundtransparant.
Even I don't know how to get the snapshot of devicehomepage using camera.
If you could explain how to do this, would be nice for me.

Its means, if write the Display.screenshot(Bitmap bitmap) in starting screen, I can carry this image to any stage in my application. As long as my application runs, I can use this as background. Then, I need not to run my app in background. is it right ? if not so, please give more explanation in this.
Once again Thanks a lot.
