HomeScreen.updateIcon(bitmap, 0) not invalidating HomeScreen for redraw

Hi there,

I appear to have trouble updating the HomeScreen's icons under certain screens. I know I have succesfully set it because it is not throwing an exception, and it does actually update the HomeScreen, just not invalidating for redraw.

If I navigate to the icon and forces it to be un/highlighted, the new icon then appears.

 

If you're in the application list however, the icons updates as you would expect. It is also interesting to note that if BlackBerry's Mail icons actually updates as intended in those on my BB8310 device when new mails arrives. So it is possible that I may have missed something.


Using Component Package 4.7.0.46
BB 9500 Vodafone Simulator 4.7.0.75 using

Using Component Package 4.3.0.16
BB 9000 OrangeFR Simulator 4.6.0.126
BB 8310 Vodafone Device & Simulator 4.5.0.55

Screenshots of where in the Homescreen does it not update the icons.

Sigh... ignore me. I should've searched a bit harder...
