Icon in title bar - SHNotificationAdd? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I'd like to display an icon indicating a status in the title bar, next to the clock, battery monitor, etc. I understand that SHNotificationAdd will do this but it is not meant to do this. Several posts here and there claim that this is operator/device specific and is not supported on certain platforms, etc (recommending a plugin for the Today screen). However, my status needs to be displayed even when a call is in progress. I don't really care where it resides, as long as it is constantly visible on screen - just like reception strength.

    If this is the case, are there any alternatives to SHNotificationAdd? What are the downsides of using said API?

  • Hi Pavius,

    As far as I know, there is no such API to do the work.  One possibility is to use createwindow API to create a winow in the position you want to place icon. Please try it.
