Sorry if this is a daft question, but how do you switch pages? I can see there are 2 dots above the lower menu, (and 3 on the contacts page) but clicking on them doesn't switch between pages 1 and 2....

Hehe, havent you used the gestures yet?
Try sweeping your finger sideways on the screen, if you have a touchscreen that is.
If not, press one of the softmenus.

Enlight of the new 2.1 version, I have created a theme that will include the voicemail icon. If you may have noticed in my previous themes, I don't use the "small" data connection icons so this theme would not have it also. In my future themes I may include it but we'll see. For now, here's my first 2.1 version theme I call "Calm".

Note: I have grouped tabs into 3 different MAIN (bottom icons) sections:

Programs Section
> Launcher
> MRU

Clock Section
> Now
> Calender

Contacts Section
> 3 pages of contact pages

Gesture is limited to pages within each MAIN section since I grouped everything using xml code (used subforms within subforms). To go to a MAIN section, simply tap the related bottom icon. Each page within MAIN section will have an indicator at the bottom showing which page is currently displayed. Lastly, which ever page you're in before going to a different MAIN section, going back to previous MAIN section will show last page selected. For example, you're in Programs > MRU, then you tapped on Clock, when you tap on Programs again, it will display MRU screen not Launcher screen which is the first page.

I apologize for the lenghty intro, I figured this will answer a few questions before they're asked.

As always, this includes today tsk and S2U2 wallpapers (non-animated). It's also support landscape mode.

Have a good one!

Sorry, but for me this is step back. I love stylus gestures and this almost eliminates them.

I wonder if it was possible to remove the tab buttons completely thus saving a lot of space?

i like the way it works, but under "customize menu" it will not open the link to mobile shell screen..

maybe the xml file need the link fixed
Thanks

Customize Menu not working is not due to my theme. Please check your registry and make sure you have everything correct. What I did after installing 2.1 to restore 9 menu icons was to just create a new key called "Games" then copy all the contents of My Menu key to it. Then I just changed the Image (dword) value to 8 and Text (string) value to Games (or whatever title you want).

Hope this helps.

Yes it is, and when you do it is a HUGE improvement IMO. Here is a new layout I'm almost finished with. I'm just tweaking a couple small issues.



Note the notifications, profiles, etc stay pinned on every screen. I also kept the battery and signal too. This required resizing many of the elements but it was worth it. (Credit goes to aaron1124 at spbclub.com for the original bottom tab replacement)


kulet78,

Perhaps you could work this into your awesome layout? Your idea with the indicator dots is brilliant! Maybe you could work the current tab indicator into them somehow, and lose the bottom bar entirely. Just a thought...

I can do you one better. I've created a folder for 2.1 Icons and packs and given everyone complete access to upload to this folder, create sub folders, rename, delete, you name it. The only thing I ask in return is don't go ape$hit and max out my space and please don't post WAREZ. But other than that, have at it guys. Here is a direct link to that folder.

Like I said, complete access. If you want, make a subfolder of your name or whatever to give someone a little better idea of what the file is. Link away guys. Thanks.
