I wanted to reuse system icons for a custom checkbox in custom list. But where are the icons?
In theory developers can use built-in icons from avkon2.mbm and avkon2.mif files. Problem is that this is not too well documented and the contents seems to vary between S60 releases. Good candidate for compatibility issues!
After too many experiments and google searches, I finally had no choice, but to write this helper application. I hope it will save time for others.
Note: it seems that MIF graphics are supported in 3rd and 5th Edition devices, too! Those files contain Scalable Vector Graphics files (SVG-T file format), which look better than MBM.
