hi

How can i display a image on the top part of the homescreen, like when a new message comes on the blackberry an closed envelope icon appears on the top most part of the homescreen.

Does anyone know how can we achieve this, i hv looked in the homescreeen class but it does not give aything to achieve this.

Any links ideas will be very helpful.

I don't think there is any public API available for this. I know Google talk and yahoo messenger do this - but looks like they use some kind of undocumented API. May be somebody can disassemble the code and figure it out?

Google talk and yahoo are using internal APIs from RIM. RIM obviously gave them permission or access to those API's, or more likely, they were developed in house at RIM.

Short answer is no, as a 3rd party developer you can't manipulate the ribbon.
