BBM ProfileBox icons - user created

Hi,

 

I'm connecting my app to BBM and was wondering if it's possible to have the application profile box icons to be user generated.

 

For example, a user takes a photo of a thing he/she owns and I would like to use that photo as an icon with an id of 1 for example (if the user changes his photo, I would register this new image with id 2 and so on).

 

On some other device, an icon with id = 1 would lead to a totally different image, becouse the user would take a photo of a different thing.

 

So will it work?

 

I'm concered since I read this (core native docs): http://developer.blackberry.com/native/reference/bb10/com.qnx.doc.bbmsp.lib_ref/topic/bbmsp_user_pro...

As far as I know that will work since the icon ID is linked to a BMM account.

Thank you zezke, I think it should work that way. But how certain are you with this?

Re: BBM ProfileBox icons - user created

You can use any image you like for a profile box icon as long as it's less than 333 x 333 in size (119 x 119 and under 15 kb is the ideal size).  You'd just need to register the images before using them.  Refer to the example here.
