I am asking how to display an icon to indicate an unread message in my own application. While there is no new message, it should not display the icon. Actually I want to show that icon in my statusbar, which will be viewed from every page. Currently I have few text in status bar, like Date and Time. I am using setStatus() function. Now I need to display an icon also, if there is new message. How can I do this programmatically?

Actually after re-reading your second post I'm not sure I know what you want to do.

This you can do in OS version 4.6 and above.
Solution is :

EncodedImage mImage = EncodedImage.getEncodedImageResource("applicationI ndicatipor.png");
ApplicationIcon mIcon = new ApplicationIcon(mImage);
ApplicationIndicatorRegistry reg = ApplicationIndicatorRegistry.getInstance();
ApplicationIndicator indicator = reg.register(mIcon, false, true);
indicator.setValue(55);

//To change Icon
ApplicationIndicatorRegistry reg = ApplicationIndicatorRegistry.getInstance();
ApplicationIndicator appIndicator = reg.getApplicationIndicator();
appIndicator.setIcon(newIcon);

Yogesh, Thank you very much. Yes, it displays icon. Can we make this icon hyperlink so that it navigates to another page?
