Excellent thread. I did want to know if there is a way to give the MRU a background image or if I have to apply a bg image to the whole background and position it on top. I have a bg image behind my iconbar and I'm looking to do something similar for the MRU.

Nvm. I decided just to use a bgimage and position the bar. I am trying to figure out now how to put a bg color behind the selected Message # thing... it would be in here.

it doesn't seem to want to put a bg color behind the individual labels. I can get it to all or nothing.

Stupid question maybe- but didn't see it addressed here and couldn't find it elsewhere on the site. Where do you put the files? (xml and jpg) Thanks!

put them in the \Windows directory. you could make a different location for the images and stuff if you want but make sure to specify an absolute path to them in you xml.hope that answers you Q.

Hello, a newbie here, i just have a quick question...

I'm trying to put multiple plugins across the screen horizontally, but every plugin drops to the next line and is listed vertically. Can i change this?

Thanks, BTW...i have the AT&T Samsung BlackJack SGH-i607 (1st Generation).

I'm not a homescreen creator but from memory it is not possible (unless they have changed this in newer ROMs?)

I was wondering how one would go about adding the date and time in the top iconbar area like this guy did.


I looks like he was able to make the iconbar think it was on a vertical phone so it was short enough to fit the time on the side. I tried just using x, y coordinate to put the carrier plugin in the corner, but the iconbar ends up covering it up even when there is no picture and it is transparent. Any thoughts on how to do this?
