reply on Qusers from Pony:
thanks RB (and pony for the post on Qusers)
this seems to be alot more complicated that i originally thought:frown:
i wonder if piranah found how he did it
np, i hope so.... because now it's getting to me also that we can't make it work.
im not at home right now, but does chaging the system color value work? on my homescreen i have the date displayed and if i select it, it goes to wireless manager, i know the color of that text can be changed. would changing that value work? i have some time this evening ill see what i got...sorry for the delay

its all good take your time just impatient (like RB)
but the color of the 'ALERTTEXT' on the homescreen was already set at the color i want (which is white)
Im going off of the "Earpiece Volume" screen (easiest to check quickly) and I found that this: <color name="COLOR_ALERTWINDOW" value="#FF0000"/> changes the color of the background of the bar...still searching..ok...here we go...this:<color name="COLOR_ALERTTITLE" value="#003300"/> changes the color of the TEXT IN THE TOP OF THE WINDOW...ie Info, Earpiece Volume, etc...the text below can not be changed..i have not found anyway to get the bottom text to change...hope this helps and sorry for the bad news
aaah i see
well that sucks :frown:
ill have to create something lighter to use
thank you very much for your help!!!
Yea it does...i have a buddy whos dad helped develop microsoft, i might try and give him a call and see if he can hack it
how do i get those pictures in the first post into my phone ?!?!?
those look nicee :laugh2:
read this thread at Qusers.com..
i read it .
still dont really get it .
Where do i find the WINDOWS folder at ?
Do i just have to edit the registry to get those screens ?
Send me a PM when there's a post I should look at (found this thread by accident). I'm not reading whole EQ, just Homescreen and Software sub-forum, sometimes (very rarely) a few other sub-forums...
I see you already tested quite a few values... I somehow think those could help:
<color name="COLOR_ALERTWINDOW" value="#FFFFFF"/>
<color name="COLOR_ALERTTITLE" value="#000000"/>
<color name="COLOR_ALERTRULE" value="#000000"/>
Window for the background, title for the title, rule for the main text (and the volume bar for example).
If you didn't get a respone by cgibin... I got him here on MSN I think, so I can ask him if needed.

ill make sure i do that if i think you might know the answer!
i think i might have gotten it...i think the codes were inverted so it wasnt showing up right...the volume one works...rebooting now to test out the call screen and others!!
ok so i changed my settings to this:
<color name="COLOR_ALERTWINDOW" value="#000000"/>
<color name="COLOR_ALERTTITLE" value="#FFFFFF"/>
<color name="COLOR_ALERTRULE" value="#FFFFFF"/>
still not quite right
volume is perfect...
in call screen everything is black
the system message title is white but the text below is black...
i tried to make them all 'FFFFFF' or all '000000' and still nothing
i have rebooted and refreshed the screen :frown:
the Windows folder on the Q.. find it with a File Manager, no need to mess in the registry.. it's just replacing screens.
Hmmm... seems like there are a few hard coded settings...
I remember that all that stuff worked fine with WM2003 ... yeah, WM2003 was a real good-working system ... :tounge:
hahah wm2003....that could be a problem!:laugh2:
does anybody have the default call screen image that i could put back in my phone ?
what carrier ? here are the Verizon default screens..
