    7. Backendless.Messaging.publish( "Message",
    8. publishOptions, deliveryOptions, new BackendlessCallback<MessageStatus>()
    9. {
    10. @Override
    11. public void handleResponse( MessageStatus response )
    12. {
    13. System.out.println("Push Success");
    14. }
    15. @Override
    16. public void handleFault( BackendlessFault fault )
    17. {
    18. Toast.makeText( getContext(), fault.getMessage(), Toast.LENGTH_SHORT ).show();
    19. }
    20. } );

    Hello, Nasser!

    Unfortunately, your issue is not related to Backendless. The way how push notification is rendered is not controlled by Backendless API.

    I can offer you to try to generate a chat sample for android using codegeneration feature. Push receiver there contains code that uses custom icon for received notification.




    hi Alexander,

    thanks for responding ,

    but if we take (Parse mBaas) as example they give a way to override getSmallIconId function to replace small icon...

    why i can't do that in backendless ?
