***UPDATED 30/10/2010 - NEW VERSION WITH A FEW IMPROVEMENTS - SEE POST 34***



*** UPDATED - SEE POSTS 6 & 7 FOR SCREENSHOTS AND POST 8 FOR DOWNLOAD LINKS ***


Hi all,

Here's an Android theme which I made to use with WAD.
It's the first theme I've created but I thought it turned out pretty well, so I thought I'd share it and see what you think.
It's for WVGA devices (I use a TG01) and is portrait only.

It has:
3 main pages for shortcuts (slide left/right to move between them)

Clock widget

2 menu pages - tap the silver button at the bottom of any main page to slide up to menu page 1, and slide your finger up on that page to access menu page 2.
Slide your finger down to get back to menu page 1 and tap the silver button at the top of menu page 1 to get back to the main screens.

Taskbar with battery, signal, wifi and new SMS notifications.

To install (if you're already using WAD you probably know this anyway, but just in case!!):
Unzip contents and copy the 'WAD Android theme' folder to Program Files/Lakeridge/Wisbar Advance Desktop/Themes.
In WAD, tap and hold the screen and select 'change theme' (or 'settings - change theme' depending which version of WAD you have).
A new theme should be listed, if not press menu, then scan for themes to fond it (theme should be called 'original backup')
Tap on this, press menu and select 'set as portrait theme'
Done!!

I also included some other android icons which are not used in the theme, for you to use when making your own changes.

Hope you enjoy it - all feedback welcome.

tweaks
I've discovered there's a couple of tweaks you'll need to make to this theme, to correct some things:

TIME IN TASKBAR:
This is an hour behind the clock widget and is wrong.
Enter Author Mode and tap and hold on the time.
Tap 'properties',then 'text to display'.
Delete what's in the box, tap 'insert variable' and select 'clock - 12 hour'.
Press 'done' until you are back at the main screen.

BATTERY METER:
Schoolboy error - the meter is decreasing in the wrong direction and looks messed up!!
Enter Author Mode and tap and hold on the battery meter.
Tap 'properties', then 'layout'.
Tick the box labelled 'display in the opposite direction'.
Press 'done' until you are back at the main screen.

Regards,
Wildcardspv

Update
Hi there,

This is a bit of a work in progress, so here is a new version with the above corrections already done, a new wallpaper and now also a slide down bar at the top of the 3 main screens, which opens a notifications screen.

Currently this displays the newest SMS message and gives the option to cycle between next/previous messages, as well as reply to them.
In order for this new version to work, please extract the folders from the attachment and place them on your device as follows:

Android theme: Program Files/Lakeridge/Wisbar Advance Desktop/Themes

Message2Reg: My Device/Program Files

Messages: My Device/Windows/Start Menu/Programs

You will also need to install Mortscript, which is included in the attachment.

Enjoy!!

Further update
The notification screen now shows todays calendar appointments, as well as your newest email (currently googlemail - although the email account can be changed), with the option to flick between next/previous emails.
Here's a screenshot of the main screen with the slide down bar at the top, and the notification screen.
I'll uplodad this updated version tomorrow.

Latest version
Hi,

Here's the latest version with a few changes - see screenshots.

What's new?
1) new email icon in the taskbar
2) reply to email option on the notification screen
3) lockscreen with slider

For emails to be refreshed when opening the notifications screen, please place 'Mail Refresh.Ink' in My Device/Windows/Start Menu/Programs/Messages.

For the digital clock on the lockscreen to work, please ensure that in its script, the 'layout/HTC Home clock theme path' is set to be the 'Digital Clock' folder which is included in this attachment.

Any questions, please get in touch.
As always, all feedback is appreciated.

Regards,
wildcardspv

Improved lockscreen, plus extra wallpapers
Hi all,

Here's a new version with an improved lockscreen, which now includes a volume control slider, new email, SMS and battery level summaries, and network status (see screenshot).

There are also some extra panoramic wallpapers, to span the 3 main screens. In each folder there are 3 files (BG1, BG2 and BG3) - set them as the wallpaper on the following pages:
Desktop - BG1
1 - BG2
2 - BG3

In the last post I said:
"For the digital clock on the lockscreen to work, please ensure that in its script, the 'layout/HTC Home clock theme path' is set to be the 'Digital Clock' folder which is included in this attachment."

In reality you'll find that once the them is installed and applied, the digital clock won't appear on the lockscreen.
To get it, enter Author Mode and add a clock. Choose 'HTC Home' as the type, and then under 'layout/HTC Home clock theme path' set this to be the 'Digital Clock' folder from the previous attachment.

Hope that makes sense!!!
I wish I could create cabs to make this easier for you!!

Sorry my friend, but this theme is specifically for Wisbar Advance Desktop - without running WAD you can''t use it I'm afraid.
