A quick theme question

6 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hey i'm trying to start learning to theme and have been messing with the uot kitchen, on the rom i have now swedish spring with frankish BluGingerbread theme when i touch a menu item it has a blue highlight when pressed i can't seem to find that in the uot also when i change the volume that is blue as well, does anyone know what file(s) i have to edit? I guess it's in framework-res.apk. Any help would be gratefully accepted. Thank you.

edit: Also can i just extract the apk's from the ROM zip before i flash it for use with UOT? Thanks a lot.

Nine patch files or .9.PNG are special types of image used in Android that can be "stretched" depending on screen resolution. If you are replacing a nine patch, it is a good idea to replace it with another nine patch.

A quick and easy tutorial for making your own .9.PNGs from a normal PNG is available on the Android Developer site, assuming you have the Android SDK installed. If you don't then get it!

http://developer.android.com/guide/developing/tools/draw9patch.html

Hope this helps!
