Add Icon to Menu For Android App

I am just starting to learn how to make an android app..I followed the guide lines to make the hellp world applcation and it works. I was wondering how do I add an icon to the script to display on the meu when I transfer it to my phone..THanks
package com.example.hellodroid;

import android.app.Activity;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.widget.TextView;

public class HelloDroid extends Activity {
    /** Called when the activity is first created. */
    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        TextView tv = new TextView(this);
        tv.setText("Hello, Android");
        setContentView(tv);
    }
}

Open in new window

the icon will be added automatically to the list of all applications when your app is installed.

in your AndroidManifest.xml, you'll see something like

<application android:icon="@drawable/icon48x48"

Open in new window


which tell Android what Icon to use for that.
