    Excuse me if my question is a bit stupid but I'm a newbie...

    I'm programming a midlet that needs some image files (.png)... my problem is
    that I don't know how to add those image files to the project... I'm using
    KToolbar and I cannot see how to add image files via KToolbar....

    Have anyone of you some tips for me about this, then please send it to
    a link would be great, as I've spent hours searching the net

    Best Regards

  2. It's actually as easy as adding files to the .jar file. For instance,
    here are some ant tasks I use in Hecl (

    <jar destfile="j2me/Hecl.jar" basedir="j2me/" includes="script.hcl"
    <jar destfile="j2me/Hecl.jar" basedir="j2me/" includes="Hecl.png"

    You could use the 'jar' command directly too if you look up the command
    line options to add a file to the archive.

  3. Put the files into the res directory under your application's directory,
    and reference them with "/res/filename".

  4. He asked how to add them to his Wireless Toolkit environment, which
    requires them to be placed into the /res/ directory for the project. So,
    no, throwing them into a JAR doesn't solve his problem.
