Thread Deleted Email Thread
Ikarus suggested we start a new thread with our customized themes and questions on theming, so I thought I would post my current to start it off.
Theme includes the segoe ui font. Ikarus said he would assist in this thread as time permits for him, otherwise anyone with BS experience can jump in and assist anyone with problems.
If you don't know what the excellent Battery Status is, check out here
Here is the online-manual for customization, which is linked in the first post of BS-Thread too.

Yet another clock theme
Here's a clean and simple theme i made for my wizard. Not all meters can be shown, since i made icons for only the ones i use (no operator info, no AM/PM indicator for 12h clock, maybe something else is not implemented).
Includes icons for tray launcher - BT on/off, WiFi on/off, Phone on/off, rotate screen, disable screen and lock device.

With Ecqlipse 2 icons used for Touch commander and ppcProfiles Pro with modified tray icons and profile selection menu to match the overall look (done with ResourceHacker since ppcProfiles has no skinning option) it makes quite a good impression
Works best with HTC Touch Today screen theme, or other dark backgrounds.

Enjoy.

Just started using this program and love it.
I actually got rid of Ilauncher since all I was using it for was the meters.
Keep those themes coming

Hi ikarus,

- How do you add the class="start_app" in the class "date" or the class "cpu_utilization" ?
I tried <Item class="date" ontap="\Windows\Calendar.exe" > but it doesn't work.

- How do change the icons for class="battery_ac_icons" ?

- Sorry to ask : where can I find the manual with all the tags ?

- Something strange : if the view with the CPU load is not active, the CPU load is not displayed in the taskbar. If the view is active and BS is minimized, the CPU load is still displayed in the taskbar.

- I believe the skin setup should override the option setup : if the option is set, the CPU frequency is bold, even with :

<Item class="cpuspeed" >
<label fontfamily="Tahoma" fontsize="12" bold="0" />
</Item>

- When trying to display the CPU utilization below the icon, using :

<Item class="cpu_utilization" ontap="CtlPnl" index="4" subindex="2" >
<image src="CPU.png" width="12" top="2" left="10" />
<label fontfamily="Tahoma" fontsize="12" width="40" top="7" left="-25" align="center" />
</Item>

Only the label area below the icon is refreshed (12 pixels) instead of the whole area (40 pixels).

Thanks again for this great apps.

Kind regards,

Herunim

online-manual for customization, which is linked in the first post of BS-Thread too.
Shall i make the fontsize in first thread bigger?
Basically i don't like to emphasize so much, because it irritates more then..

you have to use ontap="StartApp", which specifies the action to do.
btw. the class="start_app" implicitly makes use of ontap="StartApp"..
After that you can supply the parameters for that action (see manual) e.g. path="\Windows\Calendar.exe"

Don't you've seen the example for AppLauncher at first page of BS-Thread?
Anything you need is used in the example...
btw. i've just moved it to first page of this thread.

there are a lot of methods, e.g.
- replace the bitmaps for that icons (copy the resources from default-folder to your desktop-computer and check which ones to change)
- use two <image src="..."... > for the images, where you can use png/bmp/gif/jpeg..

It's by design. The taskbar-indicator is primarily for showing the cpuspeed.
If no cpu-utilization reading is on today-screen (and cpuscaler is disabled), then there's no need to hold the resources for cpu-utilization. Any resources for cpu-utilization will then be released.

Only the label area below the icon is refreshed (12 pixels) instead of the whole area (40 pixels).

I will check this as soon as possible, but i don't know when...
Nevertheless, thanks for reporting your observation
