app icon
« on: January 28, 2019, 11:15:12 am »
Hi every one,
I cannot change the app icon.
I tried to do that modifying the icon in Option Project menu without success.
Any suggestion?

Thanks in advance

@pfms

Did you use LAMW? Have you tried this below?
Lazarus main menu > Project > Project Options > [LAMW] Android Project Options > Application > Launcher icon

Mischi beat me ...

But as well as the things he mentions, you could also, perhaps, tell us what you are expecting to happen when you do change the icon. Depending on the platform, you may need to do a range of different things.

(The Mac wants a ICNS file, different ones for app itself, the dmg file and so on. Linux likes a set of app icons in the appropriate place and a desktop file to refer to them, windows, hmm, its easier....   And are you wanting the icon to show up in your file manager associated with the binary, in the menus or on the dock or plank while its running.)

General advice, too short an question is, perhaps, worse than too long a question ?

The thread is in Android sub forum. So I think the OP meant in LAMW. ::)

Sorry... I will fix this bug..


Until there,  you can go to project foders  "...res\drawables*"  and replace the
content of the file  "ic_launcher.png" ... 
[that is,  keep the new icon as "ic_launcher.png" on all folder  "drawables"!!!]

José, it doesn't run for me.
Is it mandatory to change the icon resolution for any folder?
I guess the compile and apk creation override the new icon with the old one (default icon)

Yes. This is a recommendation from google...

But, you can put the same "ic_launcher.png" into all "drawable*" folders....
