Really a great app, but somehow many icons have quirks. Many round parts have flat parts. E.g. the heads of no. 3 and 4 are not really round.
Or is that intention?

And a search or filter function for the icons would really be nice. It's not so nice to scroll through so much icons, especially without a scroll bar. You never know where you are.

Icons are fixed in the update, I also added sticky headers so you know where you are

Hi there. I just read about your app on Android Police. It sounded great so I downloaded the free version to try it out. I'm sure I will get the paid version also. I'm going to mess around and make a few tiles. I'll return to give you my thoughts. Not that my opinion makes any difference. Lol. Thanks

Tasker Intent Guide

Here's how you use Tasker's intent action to change a tile's state:

Add an Intent action and enter the following in the correct inputs:

Action:
com.quinny898.app.customquicksettings.CHANGE_TILE_STATE
Cat:
None
Extras:
tile:<Name or number of tile>, eg tile:Hangouts or tile:0
active:true/false, eg active:true (true = tile is white, false = tile is greyed out)
Package:
com.quinny898.app.customquicksettings
Class:
com.quinny898.app.customquicksettings.receivers.Tasker
Target:
Broadcast Receiver

Leave the rest of the options as their defaults (empty)

Some issues:

1. Changing the color of "Adaptive Brightness" toggle icon doesn't work.
2. Same with the "Flashlight" toggle. And the first time I've tested the "Flashlight" toggle I wasn't able to switch off the flashlight. It went off only after opening the app.
3. The icon search feature isn't very useful. It shows only max. 5 results and it always starts at the beginning of the name. So you can't enter "auto" to find "brightness auto". Even with "brightness" you don't find it. You have to enter at least "brightness a" to find it.
Maybe a filter function would be better. And it should look in the whole name.
4. There are still some broken icons: Cancel, Headphone Dots, No, Question Mark Circle

Some requests (seen in another app):

5. Support for app icons would really be great.
6. It would surely be very handy if selecting an action would also set the corresponding icon.

1. Is in the process of being fixed
2. is intentional, it's not supported right now
3. The library that does the sections doesn't support filtering (it's a bug in it right now) so maybe later
4. Working on it
5. Maybe soon
6. Same as 5

I'm assuming there's no way for this to work for the built in toggles or root toggles? I would have to create my own Tasker task and include this intent?
Also, the adaptive brightness toggle doesn't seem to work.

It works for any custom tile theoretically. It would look weird if you set a custom icon that was multi colour though.

The tile does work, it just doesn't react, it's a bug.

I did get the intent working to change the tile color when NFC is toggled.
Yes, your'e right. The adaptive brightness tile works it just doesn't change the toggle in the Android settings, which is fine with me.

Great app, the pro version is definitely worth the price. Thanks!

Great app, thanks! But when I click on the volume tile, it opens the media volume panel instead of the ringer. Don't know if this is a bug but if not, could you please add the option to open ringer panel? Thanks

same here! :( this app seems very promising, thanks to OP first of all, but also in my z3c I have FC when applying the new tile (I'm on version 1.4 and I am rooted, sony concept rom that should be almost pure aosp).

will a log be helpful for you? if so can I just grab it with syslog app maybe?

TIA!

I have purchased the pro features of the app but the colour of tiles (nfc, sync, ...etc) doesn't change when change the state of these. Basically, this is something that makes useless the application because the user can not know in what state is the function chosen :(

    Lollipop 5.10
    Wiko Highway Star (phone)
    ROM is what came with the phone

    Hello, just installed 2.1.2 on this rooted phone with xposed framework. Was successful in removing two pesky Quick Setting tiles that I couldn't with Grav Box (W mode & Smart Standby - removing slipcover & smartstandby did the trick). For this big thanks!

    But one problem I am having is that under Custom Quick Settings' settings I don't seem to have all the ones I should. Specifically I don't have the heading of "Quick Settings Panel" as it shows on the image on the Play Store. I actually only have two headings under settings " Tile Specific" and "Advanced" but I think I should have more... three? What could that problem be? Is it because I am Lollipop? I would like to remove that brightness slider too but I see no option for that under settings. But I can do that with Grav Box so not sure why not with Custom Quick Settings?

    Cheers :)

    Lollipop has different tile adding methods, via System UI Tuner. That's why it's different.

    Gravity Box is also an Xposed module and CQS is not, that's why you have more options with Gravity Box.
