Re: setWallpaper with Base64?

Re: setWallpaper with Base64?

I managed to grab a Base64 image and save it to appdata as an image (filetransfer don't work)


I want this sort of thing for a completely different concept myself and was able to check that the resultant image was good


Thing is that when I tried a setWallpaper test from the App's own space it did absolutetly nothing - not even an error thrown


I'm wondering if that particular API has to have its files in shared data area?


I'll let Phil work that bit out


For my own use I wanted to download from a server, save file in appdata (as an image) then display it in-app - file system won't let you do this but got a horrible work-around that does the deed
