How to add a translation
In the install folder you can find the lang folder, inside it copy the file language.ini into another file, you should name it language.<your local>.ini for example, for French the local is fr, thus the French translation file should be named language.fr.ini (for complete list of locals see here)
Edit the entries in the file.
Dont forget to fill the translatedBy so you'll get the proper credit for your work. If you'll send me your translation, I'll add it to the next release.
If you use notepad to edit the file, when you save it, make sure the encoding is UTF-8, so you wont lose the special characters.
The application normally will load automatically your translation, if your phone local is set to be the same, however, you can also manually select the language from the main screen menu.

Import
Import file should be a text format preferably with the extension .txt
The file format should be as follows:
Code:
Database: <List name>, <List Type>
<Category>,<Count>,<Item Name>
<Category>,<Count>,<Item Name>
...
For example:
Code:
Database: Weekly Shopping,General
Refrigerated,2,Milk
Refrigerated,3,Butter
"Condiments, Spices",,Sugar
Note, to facilitate import from "Handy Shopper", if a line starts with "• " those characters are trimmed from the line.

Export
Export file is done by default into the application install folder, with the file name export.txt

How to add a skin

  • All skins are in a folder called Skins under the install folder of the application.
  • Each skin is in its own sub-folder
  • The names of the files in the skin folder must start with the folder name followed by dash '-', for example, if the folder name is Blue, than all file names in it must start with "Blue-"
  • Button width shouldn't exceed 400 pixels, and its maximal height should be 78 pixels
  • You should also have an ini file named <skin folder name>-skin.ini (e.g. Blue-skin.ini).
  • The colors inside are in hex format as 0xRRGGBB, e.g., if you want deep green color (Red=0, Green=FF (255 dec), Blue=0) the value will be 0x00FF00
  • As of V3.50 you can skin the whole application. As an example, I expanded the Dusk skin (the buttons for the main screen were made by redd214) so that it's style will be reflected to the whole app. You can see the skin files under the <APP Install Dir>/skins/Dusk

Things left to do
  • Move action buttons (Add, Delete, Copy) to the bottom of the screen
  • Check if possible to use long press on item of Manila SDK to start item menu
  • Capitalized every first word option (will prob add it to the language ini file, as not all languages support it)
  • Barcode support (??? not sure about that)
  • User guide/help
  • Import from SMS (correctly formatted).
  • Let user change items positions
  • Item cost and list cost (user option).
  • Ability to sync between several devices
  • Save state of all collapsed groups
  • Ability to select different than the main email/phone info from the phone book
  • Have more than 2 lines in text edit boxes

I'll be very happy to get your feedback.

The application is using NETCFv35.wm.armv4i

Hey Konstantin,
Many thanks for the translation, I'll add it to next release.

If you'll look in my todo list in the first post, I want to replace the Add button with graphic. This is why its not in the translate table.
The reason for that is that I dont want the button to be big (I have no idea how long the string Add can be in other languages... :eek:).

How does this work? Using Transciber? That's what I use for quick shopping lists: Notes and Transciber, to quickly write down things like bred, butter, new laptop etc.

Yes, I think it's better for you to add some graphics. Duly noted.

By the way I can help you with some graphics element, like buttons and etc...

So will wait for next releases!

Hi Amir1960

Good beginning, and graphics will be Ok like a (+) and (-) and (x) :)

A suggestion for the menu, since you are going to add more options, instead of 3 lines (Save list, Load list and Del list) make one called List with submenus Save, Load and Delete. Then you could add Categories with submenus like Shops etc...
Another suggestion would be to place these graphics at the bottom, so the finger will not hide the text.

Keep the good work :D

BTW I can help with French translation too.

Hi Amir1960

Ok, I see yours (BTW what about another name?).

It looks and feels more elaborate, I find confusing in "edit sh. list" after you choose category that items from other categories are visible, it should be showing only the items of this category IMO, and in this case you don't need 2 lines for every item, that can save a lot of space.

How do I translate? is there a template?

The category you choose in the "edit shopping list" is not a filter, its part of the Add item area, i.e. new items will have that category.

I agree that the GUI there is confusing, I'll look into shaping it up.

I see, i was thinking categories would be a database, and clicking on a check box will make it appear in the actual shopping list or as you call it "go shopping".
Do you plan adding the poss. to edit Lists, Categories and Items?

    @Amir
    Must be OK now!:)
    1
    - have i only to change/modify the pictures a replace them with same size and name or must i also change something in that ini-file:confused:
    Would like some advice;)

    Updated first post, please let me know if you need more info.

    How to add a skin

    • All skins are in a folder called Skins under the install folder of the application.
    • Each skin is in its own sub-folder
    • The names of the files in the skin folder must start with the folder name followed by dash '-', for example, if the folder name is Blue, than all file names in it must start with "Blue-"
    • Button width shouldn't exceed 400 pixels, and its maximal height should be 78 pixels
    • for each button there are 4 png images, when its released (up) when its pressed (down), and up & down qvga version.
    • Normally the qvga versions are just 50% scalled down of the regular buttons.
    • You should also have an ini file named <skin folder name>-skin.ini (e.g. Blue-skin.ini).
    • The colors inside are in hex format as 0xRRGGBB, e.g., if you want deep green color (Red=0, Green=FF (255 dec), Blue=0) the value will be 0x00FF00
    • Note that for now, the use of Logo and background image is disabled.
