I've written a small program that allows you to automatically change the background of your home screen. It works with TF3D only.

Because it's fun to see a different WallPaper every time you turn on your device.

Diamond BackgroundChanger has the following features:
  • Ability to specify WallPaper Folder
    I suggest you grab yourself a copy of this wonderful WallPaper Pack:

  • Ability to indicate whether to change the WallPaper automatically or not

  • Ability to choose the interval for changing the WallPaper
    30 seconds, 1 minute, 5 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour, 4 hours, etc.

  • Ability to add the program to your startup folder

  • The program saves and restores your settings when restarted.
Just download the attached CAB file and place it on your device.

On your device, tap the CAB file to install the program.
Note: Click YES if you get any warnings.

What Else...
You must click the "Apply" button to start the program.
You don't have to do this if you add the program to your startup folder ("Menu - Add to Startup").

You need .NET Compact Framework 2.0 to run the program.

Please, let me know what you think of it.

Version History
-Bug Fixes (null reference, directory that doesn't exist)
-GIF/PNG files can now be indexed too
-Ability to change WallPaper manually

-Indicator that shows when the background will be changed
-Fixes to ChangeWallPaper function (might solve null reference errors)

-Fixed bug: 4 hours was actually 4 minutes
-Added feature: Add to Startup
-Added some extra intervals

-Does not require the application to be running in the background

-First Version

Nice app and very nice idea from you!
Thank you very much for sharing with us and your work!
Downloaded and installed on my diamond!

But i think there is also still a little bug when the device goes to sleep mode and you wake it up with the power on button my Diamond most times do not respond to the touch screen!?? Like the touchs screen is locked?
After about 20-30 sec the touch screen then worked normaly...
I have the problem only when your program is running in the background... when not the touch screen works perfect when i wake up the device...

Maybe for your next version some comments and wishes from me :

- is it possible that the application starts automaticly when windows starts
- it would be better when it runs as an own process then as an programm in
background mode... because i think then it works also to change
backgrounds when the phone is in sleep mode?

I've already modified the program so that you no longer have to run it in the background. In the new version it will also work when your device is in sleep mode.

I've updated the attachment in the first post. Please, let me know what you think. I haven't had the chance to test it thoroughly yet.

THANKS great app.

Now i can put some photo's from my kids in it as a photo album
Maybe for the next version you could put an extra responce time in it like in the samsung phones, 20 and 30 seconds
That would make this great app a real screensaver.

from now.. your app is running on my diamond

I've changed the program a bit. Yes, again!
Tweaked and optimized it a bit, and added a feature to add it to startup.

Please, uninstall your current version. Then install the latest version.
Also, it only works on the Diamond (TF3D). Make sure that the path you've entered is correct. E.g. "\Storage Card\Content\WallPaper". Do you get any errors?
