Can i move the lock screen slider from the top to the bottom somehow?

And before teh "use s2u2" replies start, i have tried it but i just find it too bloated and i like the standard MS lock screen. I just want to move the slider to the bottom of the screen.

Thanks


EDIT: See my last post for my lockscreen file and howto.

So...
So how'd you move the slider to the bottom? I can't belive it's placed at the top originally, it's a bit of a reach and doesn't exactly increase comfort on this huge device.

I have tried editing various tags in the LS-Lockscreen file but with no luck in changing that slide text.

Would you mind sharing how you did this?
Thanks

makes a lot more sense having the slider lower down the screen. at the top of the screen you need spindly super thumbs.

having just tried the cab to move the slider down i didnt like where it put it so i uninstalled it and now i have no slide to unlock screen at all! i just get the left softkey saying unlock and that takes you to the grey screen with another unlock button which is the old windows style i think... how can i get it back?

THe way i moved the slider down was to copy

LS_LockScene_480x800.cpr

from \windows\lockscreen

to the SD card. I then edited that on my my pc to change the "top" setting to 450

<Form Width="480" Height="800">

<LS_LockScene ID="Scene">

<Slider ID="LockSlider" Top="450" .............

This places the slider just above the appointments when you have them. Copy the file back into \windows\lockscreen and soft reset.

I will play with the text parameters mentioned above and see if i can get them to move down as well.


EDIT: Sorted thanks, got the text at the right place as well now!!


Ive attached my settings file if anyone wants to give it a try. You will just have to rename the extension from .txt to .cpr then copy it to your \windows\lockscreen folder. (Clearly might be worth making a backup first of your original file incase you want to move the slider back).

Thanks for the good idea

Here are the aditional changes based on your post I made for moving some text in the lock screen:

in the same file LS_LockScene_480x800.cpr

find: <Text ID="SlideToUnlock" Top="90"
and replace "90" with "530"
This will move the text "slide" under the button.

find: <Text ID="TapOrSlide" Top="90"
and replace "90" with "530"
This will move the text "tap or slide" (appears when you have missed calls) under the button.

There is only one thing to move down - the icon for missed calls/sms. But at this time I like it at the top of the screen.
