Hey guy - whatever works for ya!! & don't be apologising, the whole idea of the post was to get the idea out to the community at large. I'm glad at least somebody has tried to use it! :wink:

I don't understand fully why you haven't been able to use the SDK. Like I said in my original post, I'm working with a mate who is a developer, & he showed me how to make the icon resource - but we are looking at the problems to see if we can identify exactly what it is, & then post another "how to".

Hi,

Can you upload the XML that you are using.

I think its missing the homehighlight value for the plugin, or it has been set to transparent.

dr blow used the chicon value which changed the icon to let you know that it was highlighted rather than homehighlight.

OK,

you need to remove the references too

bgcolor="transparent" in the background tag

as I that over-rides the

bgcolor="COLOR_HOMEHIGHLIGHT" in the preceeding format tag.

Excuse me,

<background bgcolor="transparent" />

The background tag is in the xml - as described above. The portion of the code that begins
I don't know how else to describe it! Sorry, if that doesn't make sense to you, somebody else is gonna have to have a go! :wink:

EDIT : if you are editing my original xml from the cobalt theme, then you need to remember that its for the e200, & the entire top part of the code will not work on other SPVs. The background tag you need to change to get a colour to highlight the icons is
<plugin focus="PARTIAL" highlight="transparent"  half-highlight="TRANSPARENT" clsid="{A2536C57-6AC2-4c31-9542-B144B0E9D077}" height="34" width="100%" group="p">

  <format state="selected" bgcolor="transparent" /> 

  <background b-border-width="0" />

Hope that is what you are on about! :wink:

Hi !

I cannot install eVC++ or the SDK cause I'm running under Win98 :cry:
So in order to create my custom icons, I used MrBlow's .exe file which I modified with ResHack. As I want to customize a .lnk shortcut file, I'd like to know what's the first icon's ressource number in this file ?

thx :wink:
PS: excuse me if you don't understand what I'm writing, I'm french...

Yes I've seen.
But that's not what I mean.
I .lnk files, such as "notes.lnk", icons' ressources ids are looking like this "-10500".

If you're talking about the shortcut icons in the mru and program menus then I have no idea how to change them to your custom ones.

BUT if anyone does know how to do this, please let us know as well.

I just need to open them with notepad, then to add something like "?/IPSM/myicons.exe,-1003" where myicons.exe is DrBlow's exe file, and -1003 the icon ressource number.
The problem is that I dunno how to get this ressource number
