How to Get Home screen image name?


i know how to set an image to homescreen as a wallpaper.
now i want set homescreen’s wallpaper to my canvas as a background image.
any help thanks.


you could write your own extension and create a method yourself using the WallpaperManager

more information about how to create an extension see the App Inventor Extensions document
however that will be more advanced and will require some Java skills…

thanks for answer.i will try to make my own extensions then.


@edd I just added a WallpaperManager to AppyBuilder. It can be included in next release.
What other features community-members want for this?
We can check into it too


For next release, added ability to Clear / Reset Home-wallpaper or set Wallpaper directly from Internet:


nice job. i hope you will add getwallpaper path method too.
