I tried to set image to CoverAction. Here code of my Cover:

 import QtQuick 2.0
import Sailfish.Silica 1.0

        id: label
        anchors.centerIn: parent
        text: "My Cover"

        id: coverAction

            iconSource: "update_icon.jpg"

            iconSource: "image://theme/icon-cover-pause"

I added new file in Resources folder (resources.qrc):

<qresource prefix="/">

Also I added image file named update_icon.jpg. It placed at the root of project folder. Image not showing on cover. Did I miss smth?...

I already reported that problem a long time ago on the mailing list: https://lists.sailfishos.org/pipermail/devel/2014-January/002904.html

It is very sad. Where can I find whole list if standard images like "image://theme/icon-cover-pause", "image://theme/icon-cover-play" and other?

I encountered the same problem and asked once again on mail list, and now there has been a response from Jolla:

This is unfortunately caused by the cover action architecture. Cover action icons are shown by the compositor on Homescreen side, which cannot easily access application's own qrc files.
