PNG display on PNG unsupported device

Forums:

Hello guys,
I have gone through various threads and posts on this forum regarding conversion of PNG to BMP and displaying it.

But my question is whether there is any way out that can display the PNG images, that we are getting from the server , on the device that does not support PNG.

For those devices that doesnt support PNG what can be the possible option. Any insights in this regard is highly appreciable.

Thanks,

Out of curiosity, which device are you finding no support for PNGs?

Cant say, Since our appliation is targetted to run on n number of devices , just wanted to consider all the target handsets.
And consequently,to find a work around for the same.

In our experience, we haven't found a handset yet that does not support PNGs. Everything we have tried from BREW 2.x -> current has displayed PNGs properly.
JPG used to be a problem on some older devices, but that is going away.
I would refer to the datasheets for the handsets you are targeting and see how many do not support PNG before I spent time on this. Our handset database shows 0 phones in this category, so it may not be worth your time.

Thanks ZeroCool, this gives us a ray of hope to consider atleast maximum of the 2.x and above based devices.

Thanks Suppi, for mentioning the devices that do not supprt PNG's.
Now Considering the Huwai and Kyocera devices that do not support PNG, it would be great if anyone can tell me the work around to display the PNG image data coming from the server on the handsets.I m trying to avoid the BMP downloads from the server.
Thanks Again

Though its messy and not quick, you could write a png reader .... though obviously you'd need zlib.
