Standard icons in BB10

Some of the sample apps and various BB10 screenshots seem to make use of standad all-white icons for things like:

 

- Share

- Edit

- Delete

- Add

- etc.

 

These icons are used it tabs, action items, menus, etc.

 

Is there a place where these are documented and made available, and are we allowed/expected to use these same icons in our apps?

Re: Standard icons in BB10

I would like know it too. Using the same icon collection that "legacy" apps is important for our apps integration in BB10.

Re: Standard icons in BB10

There is currently no way to access a set of default icons. For (a bit) more information you might want to look at this thread: http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Cascades-Development/Couple-of-questions-coming-from-pure-QML...

Re: Standard icons in BB10

Here are a few icons I've made:

Of most interest to people is probably the delete icon which I modeled after a screenshot of the BB10 pictures app.

Re: Standard icons in BB10

For deletions there is actually a subclass of ActionItem called DeleteActionItem that automatically adds the icon for you and adds the item to the bottom of the list of actions. For an example look at QuotePage.qml in the quotes sample app.

I cannot use this because I'm working on Open Source Projects under Apache License,

so all my stuff can be used in commercial and non-comemrcial apps

My workaround yet:

 

Using Android 4 ActionBar IconSet, xhdpi, adding some transparent pixels around to get Cascades 81x81 Pixelsize for ActionBar / ContextMenu / Tabs

 

you can watch this video to see how it looks like: http://vimeo.com/ekkescorner/ods-preview2

Re: Standard icons in BB10

There is a really nice free icon set available from Syncfusion at https://www.syncfusion.com/downloads/metrostudio Technically these are designed for Windows 8, but the icons have a similar feel to those in BlackBerry10. It also has some built in tools for whatever resizing may be required...
