1 - Poor english: as I "learned" english with video games, music, movies...
2 - I'm totaly "noob". Sorry if the question already exist and/or the post is in the wrong section.
I'm trying to make a notification widget that look slightly like the Apex Notifier.
Problem is: I DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO IT! (Again, sorry!!!!)
To have an idea of what I thought, I have attached a picture that I edited with photoshop by the final concept I want.
The green line will show Whatsapp notifications, the blue one for Facebook Messenger, the white one from SMS, and so on.
Now, I got 2 problems:
1 - I don't know how to create a counter for the apps;
2 - I don't know how to make the line (and later, the notifications) invisible.
I saw a widget some day close to this ideia, some guy created a battery icon and the background change the color depending on the battery charge. I tried to understand the variables he used but it was in vain.
If someone can just explain it ou point me to some tutorial where I can get an idea of how it works, i'd be very grateful. =)
