    I am using the build-in icons all over my app which works fine when deploying the app in debug mode (build settings). But when I build the app in release mode non of the build-in icons is shown.

    I am forcing the flat theme for the app.

    Hi Christoph,

    We assume you're utilizing Kendo UI Mobile framework for your app and its flat theme, correct? What is the platform you're trying this on? We tried the scenario you describe by using the default Kendo UI template, but didn't notice the behavior you describe. Please compare the differences between your app and the default template, and if you're unable to identify the problem, try to isolate the issue as much as possible and provide us with the isolated sample for testing.

    Yes, your that's correct.

    I am trying on Android 4.4. Ok, my next step will be to test the Kendo UI template project and deploy it in Release mode on the device.
    Will let you know about the findings.

    Steve,

    I can confirm that the Kendo UI template project is showing icons also in release build. I still don't see any reason why this is not working in my case.

    One difference is that we use remote-views (in seperate html files) but I did not try that based on the project template.

    Another question is how I can get rid of the settings button in Android? I know in debug mode it is used for liceSync but in release mode this button is completely useless and hence should not be visible. How can I achieve this?

    Cheers,
    Christoph

    Hi Christoph,

    Remote views should not be related to the missing icons, if you are able to reproduce the problem, please provide us with a sample that shows the issue and we would advise you.

    Hiding the settings button (or overflow button per google) can be accomplished by specifying higher targetSdkVersion in the AndroidManifest.xml file. More information is available in this blog post:

    "If you set either minSdkVersion or targetSdkVersion to 11 or higher, the system will not add the legacy overflow button."
