Yeah, that XML file just has its title in it, everything else is in the registry I'm guessing.
I downloaded those color schemes and tried to modify one to make it white, but it turned gray. :embarassed:
yeah, as said it could be hard-coded and not changeable.
secondly, i haven't played with that yet.. which color code do you use for white ?
I used #FFFFFF for white. I guess we'd have to change the font color to black as well.
I've always read those color values (those of the softkeys) are based off hues. I could be wrong, but I believe the default hue is black and that's why the BlackSoftKeys.scheme.xml is basically empty.
What this means is the keys are always black, but then your code is placing a kind of "skin" over that to mix the colors. Think about placing red cellophane over an object of a different color.
That would also mean setting #FFFFFF (straight white) over #000000 (straight black) would create grey softkeys.
That makes sense. So is there's no way of making white soft keys then?
very interesting... never heard this before.
It was discussed in one of the home screen builder threads linked in Pony/Steve's thread. I think it was on the Modaco link. Whatever link it was had a link to Microsoft's site saying the same thing, so I took it as fact.
I may have misunderstood, but it does explain the grey color from #FFFFFF. It would mean white softkeys appear to be impossible. I kow there's software out there can change the color of the softkeys on the fly, but I can't find it again to see if it can do white.
it sounds plausible to me... and it even makes sense :}
just tried it... and got rid of it, it just didn't look right for my taste.
dont like the color schemes for the bars?
nope... the black soft keys looked almost transparent with still that well kinda ugly color-changing line above it (don't know how to call it). so for the time being it's back to gray.
You mean that gradient line above the black buttons? I noticed that too.
gradient.. that's the word i was looking for, and yes that is what i mean/meant.
haha yea i know what you mean...i tried that program that prosper made and boy did i 'f' stuff up there...i have to keep trying...im trying to make the background color the start button color so it all blends...its a work in progress as of now...
see... how that would have priority over the startup/shutdown screens, i was on the road to changing that gradient (thx felix :} line but kept running into walls and it kinda slipped to the back of my mind..
maybe we can dare eko :}
i think she might be the one to talk to...and prosper is pretty knowledgable about that stuff too...
(let's start with reverse psychology) i don't think it's do-able.....
or maybe we should just ask... and say please :}
sorry catch me up in one post as to what you are trying to accomplish and ill see what I can do
wow you are good
so basically trying to get rid of that gradient line above the softkeys...make it solid to mesh with the buttons...
