how to set application version

[ Edited ]

Hi there!


I looked everywhere (OK perhaps not everywhere Smiley Wink) but I cant find how to set the application version, so that it is shown in the Application Loader and the manager on the phone.

Eclipse -> Project Properties seems to work, but the version I wrote in is not shown anywhere.


Can you help me?

It's in the *.ALX file. Just open it with notepad (or similiar) and you should find something like:


        <version >


Just put your current versionnumber there!

Yes, it's in the .alx file, but eclipse is supposed to put it there. In general you shouldn't have to edit generated files.


You seem to be saying " Project -> Properties-> BlackBerry Project Properties -> General tab -> Version field" is not working. That seems odd to me, seems like it ought to be right.  But I can't say one way or the other, because I don't use it.


I use "Window -> Preference -> BlackBerry JDE -> BlackBerry Workspace -> General tab -> Project Version Override field".  That works fine.  If you do that, the version field in the Project Properties dialog gets filled in with the version number and grayed out so you can't change it.
