Android: Add alternative Icon for notifications

Hi,

I'm looking to be able to package an alternative icon resource (i.e. an Android drawable resource) with an Android application.

This is necessary to use as icons for Notifications in the status bar. With the recent Android versions these icons are flat, transparent and white only.

I know I can use an ANE to include these resources, however I'd like to be able to give AIR developers the ability to add these resources with their application and use our ANE to access them. This requires the ability to add specific resources along with the AIR packaging of the application. Currently our only option is to use the application icon which in many cases is inappropriate for the status bar.

Something simple like being able to include a 'res' directory with additional resources would be enough to add a lot of features for us.

Any chance of adding this feature?

Cheers,

Michael

Source from here: Customizing Notifications · OneSignal Push Notification Service Documentation

Starting with Android 5, the OS forces the notification icon to be all white when your app targets Android API 21+. If you don't make a correct small icon, it will most likely be displayed as a solid white square or circle in the status bar.

Android 3.0 and higher

These icons are expected to be entirely white.

  • res/drawable-mdpi-v11/ic_stat_onesignal_default.png 24x24 pixels
  • res/drawable-hdpi-v11/ic_stat_onesignal_default.png 36x36 pixels
  • res/drawable-xhdpi-v11/ic_stat_onesignal_default.png 48x48 pixels
  • res/drawable-xxhdpi-v11/ic_stat_onesignal_default.png 72x72 pixels

All the above sizes I can set fine but as soon as I add the icon size <image24x24>icons/24x24.png</image24x24> to my app.xml config file. I get the error 'application.icon.image24x24 is an unexpected element/attribute' when I try to publish my App with Adobe Air 19.0.0.213

If we could add support for 24x24 then we should technically be able to provide the white versions of the notification icon if I understand this correctly?
