Tutorial: Creating XML homescreens

463 posts in this topic

hey guys sorry I cant give any more assistance. Pc still broke! The most recent plugin(MRU) is not 3rd party.

also someone mentioned plugins moving up when selected, that is because the total heights of all plugins is larger than your screen res (268pixels) just take some height off one or more plugins

What sort of screen? Whats the res on your phone?

*

Its a QTEK 8310 i think the resolution is 240*320

My resolution is bigger it's a qtek8310 (HTC tornado) or c600.

The system information says : 240*320 TFT.

(don't forget the white ;) )

Mabe so...but the softkeys need 20 pixels!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The calender has to be wher it is otherwise it will cover the image if higher up, and if i make it any smaller you wont be able to see what it's showing!

- 2nd thing i want the last 3 used apps at the botom right not just 1

- i want to add the profile if possible under the sms/mms

Does this homescreen make sence :

<?xml version="1.0" ?>

OK OK Let's start all over ;)

Sorry :| let's use this attached homescreen as a base to start over.

I want to add to this homescreen the "profile" under sms/mms

And when i apply this homescreen there is probably a resolution issue since over the start menu

i have a small space

test.home.xml

I CANT DO LAST USED APP AS IT IS THIRD PARTY AND HACKING UP WINDOES SIMPLE DOESNT WORK

ill move the calender

The space is simply the fact that the image size is set rong....when you put your bird on, make sure the image is 240x300 n it should be fine..i.e no spaces.

OK OK

Here is as far as I managed to go using two files:

- First one is call "lara.home.xml"

- Second one is "test.JPG"

Those were the files I used before under my SPV E200

They came from a Lara screen from the website "lemondeduskin" but this site completely changed and I can't find it anymore. I contacted the creator of the skin; I’m waiting for a reply.

Anyway those phones apparently use the resolution: 176x220 (wich is the C500 resolution)

My phone which could be considered as a C600 (HTC tornado) use the resolution 320x240

Here is apparently a skin with a home screen design for a C600:

http://www.nectun.com/details_skin.php?id_...5&id_type_tel=2

And here is one design for a C500:

http://www.nectun.com/details_skin.php?id_...7&id_type_tel=1

From the same author.

So what happened when I applied my original larahome home screen that was design originally for a 176x220 resolution I get a crappy image and a small space at the bottom :

webshot1.JPG

Here is the result i want and i want it adapted to fit a 320x240 screen (maybe the home screen made from this other website can help.

webshot2.JPG

I hope this is more understanding ;)

That's what i thought lol ;)

anyway here is the translation :

Hello all,

I would require your assistance to adapt a old skin that I had on my SPV e200 to put it on my SPV C600.

I would also like to upgrade it a little bit .

Here is what happened when I applied my original lara homescreen that was design originally for a 176x220 resolution:

webshot1.JPG

I get a crappy image and a small space at the bottom over the start menu.

And here is what I would like to obtain now with a little bonus the 2 or 3 last applications to use at bottomright and the profiles (silence, normal.) just on the top of the last used apps. I also would like SMS AND MMS appear instead of SMS AND EMAILS.

webshot2.JPG

It would need it to be adjsuted to 320x240

Here are the original files of the first skin which apparently contains the code to reveal the last applications used:

http://ig2forever.free.fr/lara.home.xml

http://ig2forever.free.fr/test.JPG

And here are the pictures in high resolution that we can use to design the backround again for it to be compatible in 320* 240.

http://ig2forever.free.fr/sp.JPG

http://ig2forever.free.fr/trefle.JPG

http://ig2forever.free.fr/fond-vert.JPG

So if somone could manage to program me a small .xml and a pretty .jpg compatible with my phone resolution with the small upsates i mention it would be great.

Thank you in advance.

Otherwise it look great is it adapted to 320x240 ?

ok ok i did a 240 by 300 picture like you said to test :

test2.jpg

But this space still apear you can see it on this screenshot :

webshot1.JPG

The original size of the writing from the lara xml are perfect :

http://ig2forever.free.fr/lara.home.xml

We just need to add profile between calendar and apps, and figure a way to make this space disappear. (my opinion it should be related to a code in the xml that would adapt the homescreen to 320* 240.

Hope that helps a little.
