Colored Iconbar Plugin

SmartToolKit modifies the Start menu to be similar to Windows Xp/Vista, and it also has a feature where it places a clock on the iconbar. That's what makes me think that it wouldn't work with your plugin. Here's a like to the page:

http://www.smartphone-freeware.com/downloa...-1-00-rc07.html

Anyways, how do I check to see if it disables home.exe?

It seems the SmartToolkit includes its own homescreen plugins. That means there is an xml file specific to their homescreen interface which includes the plugin definitions. Changes must go into that file....replacing the entry for the iconbar with the one provided. I don't think home.exe is not disabled, but if you want to check then use a program like Celetask.

the old bar in the start menu is supposed to be there b/c this only affects the home screen and try changing to the simple theme then back to neo and reboot.

Sorry guys to keep you waiting. I guess many of you are tired of seeing the black background on the iconbar...colors it has been, and colors it shall be!

I have the update ready. You should now be able to change the background and any of the notification icons you want. I hope that shall give some room to the long standing artists amongst us.

Instructions and download available here: http://shadowregistryhacks.blogspot.com/20...plugin-v20.html. Enjoy!!

I assume you did not have any problems copying and making changes to the file! Once everything was done, did you see the message box asking for confirmation to run the plugin?

Okay! Until you say yes at the confirmation the plugin will not load and you shall get a white bar.

If you used the cab installer then see if the following entry is there in the registry.

In HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{B06A8DAB-E148-40d5-BE8F-3C494ABF3046}\InProcServer32 :

Name: Default, Type: REG_SZ, Value: iconbarplugin.dll

Also, make sure the xml file of your theme has the entry as specified.

If yes, then switch to a theme that does not have the plugin. Reboot. Now load the theme that has the plugin. Go slow with the key press and wait for the confirmation box.

Hi Rinku,

I tried your bar on my Motorola Q9h,its great work by the way :) , The problem i can see its not designed for my phone: the bar is too narrow for the screen and it needs a few more options like HSDPA in the connection S o E G & H, would you be able to make these changes or perhaps you could provide the source so i could have a go at making the changes myself.

Thanks

Ian

I am working on adding landscape support to the plugin. Once that is done, I think the plugin will match the Q9h specs (320x240). Glad to know it works outside the Shadow domain.

This would be a great addition. Right now I'm using it on my Vox. The problem I encounter is that I want de bar to be transparent, so that my background image of the them comes through it. If I change the "CHome_Iconbar_Background.png" to be transparent the background of the bar turns black. I have no experience using transparency. What do I need to change to get this working?

The iconbar is ready (almost) with support for landscape mode (320x240) as well. The transparency issue has been brought to my attention and it has been resolved. I will have it out in two days.

Thank you very much. I have anotherfeature request but don't know if it is possible. The iconbar plugin seems to work only on the home screen. When you go into a menu or something I still get the normal bar on top.

By the way, the new one work like a charm. Only one question. Is it possible to have the orientation changed when you slide the phone? Normaly I have portrait but when I slide my keyboard open I have landscape. For my background image in my home.xml I have:

Excelent Work RinkuD i've installed the former bar since some days ago and i 've noted that the property for WLMessenger will not show up by incoming messages. You can use those icons for that purpose if you like :-)

go-qtek,

The number of notifications are limited in the plugin. The WML notifications are not wanted. With a few more basic changes, I shall be soon be realesing the source code for the plugin. Then perhaps interested users can add more notifications as they want.

I am not sure how to acheive that. Specially because I do not think the Shadow (only phone which I have) has that feature inbuilt. In any case, releasing the source code would perhaps motivate someone to add such features to it.

Rinku, you're a genuis! I was hoping you could add a thing or two to complete it for my Moto Q 9h

1. Can you add a 3G bar indicator

2. Can you add SMS/email indicators

3. can you add a speakerphone indicator

Thanks a ton
