    I have the dock bar configured on my Droid Eris with the default icons, but I have changed the default application for each (i.e. the message icon opens Handcent instead of the default messaging app). However, I'd like to have the icon be the app that its actually running. How can I do this? I tried long-pressing the button and selecting "Change Icon" from the menu, but I can only use either the default LP icons or I can pick a picture from the Photo album. I'd really like to have the Handcent icon for the messaging button, etc.

    Any ideas? I've seen a few threads on here where people have changed them, but none mention HOW they've changed them.

    Thanks,
    Harry

    In the future for other icons if you want them to look like the dock you can go here and get any you wish or use colored icons by choosing default icon, which are also available on a few sites or the app listed on this linked page..

    or you can do a google image search and set the size of image search on the left to 96x96 pixels, 72x72, or 48x48 and type in "handsent" and "png", you can filter the results by colour on the left in the google image search as well, so if you just want blue icons, filter by blue, and search for all images 72x72 pixels and the word 'handsent'.

    or look on this site, there are thousands.
    Icon Search Engine - Download 299,964 Free Icons, PNG Icons, Web Icons

    save the icon (use the png format ones) to your sdcard, long press on the existing icon on the dock, choose change icon, find your downloaded icon and your done.

    and of course there are the ones here:

    Can you not simply change the icon by replacing it with the app you wish to use? Pick Change shortcut and you will be taken to Select shortcut then Applications. From there you can pick Handcent. It will then ask you which icon you want to use...pick Default icon.

    Thanks for the tip. I did that and got the apps icon. What I did originally was, when I clicked on the default icon, I picked the app I wanted to use from the popup menu and made it the default. I never really changed the button's function as you suggested. All is good now.

    Thanks!
