    So far so good in my development until I tested it on my device and realized that the name of the project is what is being used beneath the icon on my device's dashboard. As a veteran programmer, I named my project something with underscores and version identifiers and didn't realize this name would be used to identify my app to the real world. How can I change this? Do I have to recreate this project under a different name? ...if so, what's the quickest way to duplicate it?

    Hello, 

    You can easily recreate your project following these steps :
    1. Go to your dashboard screen and open My Projects tab.
    2. Export the desired project through Export This Project button which is right next to you project name
    3. Save the archive to your local file system.
    4. Create new project
    5. Expand the Add menu and select From Archive command. This will open a window, from which you could locate your previously saved archive

    Feel free to contact us if you have any problems.

    Kind regards,

    Kristina, I noticed when I used these instructions, i got the project imported but its a sub-folder of the new project folder. This means I have two /js folders one within my imported folder and the other within the main new folder. It's file structure is all off. Please advice.

    Hello Lisa,

    You could reorder your folder structure simply by dragging and dropping. If you drag and drop your imported js folder to your main folder, a message would be prompted whether you like to overwrite your original js folder.

    I am also glad to say that with the current version of Icenium you could rename your Workspace or Project. So if you want to change the application identifier you could rename your Project folder, which is the folder on the second level of hierarchy. When you rename it using the context menu and redeploy your application the application identifier would be changed to the new project name. 

    All the best,

    Open your project, then in the project explorer you can right-click to change the name (rename) of items.

    I can't seem to include spaces and special characters to the app name. For example, if I name my project "A-B-C Electronic ID", it names the app "ABCElectronicID".

    Hello Joey,

     Do you mean the app identifier? The app identifier is a unique string in the format "com.foo.bar" that uniquely identifies your app on a device and is not visible to the user. It cannot contain spaces, dashes or underscores and Icenium strips those characters from the project name when generating the default identifier.

     The app name visible on a device is actually the name of the project as you see it in the Project Navigator. If you'd like to change it, you can rename your project, or you can edit AndroidManifest.xml and Info.plist directly.

    I'm talking about the app name visible on the device. When deploying on the device, the app name is the same as the project name BUT without the spaces and special characters.

    Hi Joey,

     Got it, thanks. In order to change the name your app displays on the device, you will need to edit the platform manifest. For iOS you can just set the Display Name property in the iOS tab of your project's properties view in Icenium and this will update your app's Info.plist accordingly. For Android you'll need to edit your app's AndroidManifest.xml file (the link in my previous post shows how) and change the value of the android:label attribute in the <application> and <activity> elements to your desired name.
