sorry, is depend on your device, i think.

About home plugin, I think u could design by your self, using mortscript or something, because every PND has different default shell or even OS.:p

POOM

I just integrated some extras to IPhoneToday. Not very well tested. But don't have more time now.

It contains a switch to close previous apps when returning to IPhoneToday, a POOM integration to allow configuration of calendar notifications and a better configuration of the backlight notification.

Bug Reports are welcome although it may take some time before I will fix them

[edit] attachment removed due to a major bug, causing no repaints resulting in a black screen

Nice. Would you mind looking at this:

Fixed non updating "Calendar & Appointments", "Unplayed Voice Mails" and "Irda State" icons

It was supposed to be fixed on 1.5.2 but it is still there. :(

hai... do anyone use the PND version...

i try put Wallpaper, but the slide effect not smooth, slow motion... if no wallpaper the slide is smooth...

FYI i enable the transparent setting, so that the topbar and bottom bar can blend with the wallpaper...

can anyone find this solution for this problem ???

TQ

I think this is your hardware problem since it doesn't has graphic engine adapter 2D/3D GPU, maybe you can ask your vendor about the main chipset, is that support GPU engine and what kind of renderer animation system?

Now adays, it has many chipsets that support GPU engine, such as Telechips 7901, 8901/8902; SIRF Prima chipset, SAMSUNG, Rockchip, and so on.

If your device doesn't has the renderer system, maybe one solution is, using GAPI or CF .NET 3.5, but it should be better even not so smooth if using renderer from the driver of match chipset.

As you said that your device used transparent; the transparent and gradient transparent needs good graphic renderer when doing animation.

Good luck my friend:)

I haven't looked at the reload problem, since I haven't noticed them yet. But I found the major bug with the "hang", too. That's why I temporarily removed the attachment again. I will try to solve the problem and release a new patch.

good :)
well the reload bug happen randomly (sometimes yes, sometimes not) with icons like date (for example at 00.00 o clock of a new day the date on calendar icon won't change) or with the operator icon that don't recognize the state of the operator (i use the vjvolubilis program for make this)

I got VS 2008 and the WM 5 Dev Kit, but I'm still trying figure out how one goes about downloading source from Google Code. There should be some easy way to do this rather than downloading every file individually I think. Do you Volki21 or anyone else have any advice with regard to how to get this project set up?

I have never stepped outside of VB6 before.

End Call Button - VK_TEND

Hi all,
I'm using version 1.5.4 (I've tried also latest source code) of this great software and I'm very happy with it, thanks to tronikos for great work.

My problem is that Volki21 suggested patch (thanks to Volki21 for it) doesn't work for me: when I press end call button, it shows up windows mobile today, and I have to bring up again iPhone Today from running tasks.

I'm using iPhone Today executable, full screen mode (or not full screen mode, it makes no difference) on Samsung i8000 phone (official ROM WM 6.5.3): I've tried to intercept VK_TEND button using MSCProg windows on program start, it works but hook to that window handle causes malfunction of all other applications.
If I release hook just before launch of command or icon, applications work fine, but in their windows end button goes back to default behavior, getting me to today screen.

I'm looking for a solution: there is a way to force button to open IPT or another way to solve problem?

Thank you for help and patience.

Bye.

    Changelog

    iPhoneToday v1.5.2 (Apr 15, 2010)
    1. Improved scrolling performance. It should be really fast when there is no wallpaper or there is a gradient or image background for the mainscreen pages. Under these conditions you could even enable alpha blend on background without any performance loss.
    2. Improved animation performance.
    3. Added new animation effects. The available ones are: "None", "Expand rectangle from center", "Zoom out from center", "Zoom in to center", "Expand rectangle from clicked area", "Zoom out from clicked area", and "Zoom in to clicked area".
    4. Added "animation" tab in options where you can select the animation effect, the animation duration, and whether to launch the application before the animation.
    5. The "out of screen" tab got more options. You can now configure to stop scrolling when there are no more icons in a given direction.
    6. Added an option to tile the background images.
    7. Included a couple of tileable textures.
    8. Included an iPhone background for the BottomBar.
    9. Included some nicer looking bubbles.
    10. When adding a new icon, it is now by default inserted at the end of the list not at the beginning.
    11. Whenever edit boxes receive the keyboard focus all the text in them is selected and the keyboard is shown.
    12. For PNDs added a "KB" button next to the "OK" and "X" buttons.
    13. icons.xml and settings.xml are now always saved with DOS new lines.
    14. Center button of D-pad jumps to first page.
    15. Added --goto:right and --goto:left (similar to the --goto:next and --goto:previous).
    16. Added a "Cradle State" icon.

    5. Added background image support for static bars (bottom bar and top bar). Gradient background can now be used even when a wallpaper is set. The background (gradient or image) of static bars can be alpha blended to the wallpaper.
    6. ShrinkToFit option of static bars now shrinks the text height in addition to the icon width.
    7. Added font settings dialog.
    8. Renamed "GPRS State" icon to "Cell Network State".

    15. If operator name is empty show NA for signal.
    16. Changed the field "type" in the icon settings dialog from dropdown to droplist.
    17. Fonts in the fonts subdirectory are automatically added/removed.
    18. Load strExec and strParameters (in addition to nScreen, nIcon, strName, and strImage) from HKLM\Software\iPhoneToday\Icon...\ when HKLM\Software\iPhoneToday\reloadIcon is set.
    19. Added a separate text quality option for text inside icons.
    20. Added new pressed icons.
    21. Added minimize OnLaunchIcon option (you have to manually edit settings.xml).
    22. Added UpdateWhenInactive option (you have to manually edit settings.xml) to always update notifications even when window is inactive. The default value is 0 to save battery.

    4. Added an option to "use mask for transparency" that might help the scrolling performance on some devices.
    5. Added text quality option (Default, Draft, Nonantialiased, Antialiased, Cleartype, Cleartype comp), but it is available only when alpha blend on background is disabled.
    6. Added facename (font family) option for the text labels under the icons, the header text, and the special icons text. (you have to manually configure the XML, no dialog yet).
    7. Added shadow and roundrect options for the header text.
    8. Added --winkey command to display the start menu.
    9. Added an option to show battery percentage while charging (enabled by default).

    2. Fixed a bug with background resizing.
    3. Added RoundRect option (for now only in the XML, no dialog yet) to display a black rounded rectangular behind the text (like Android).

    iPhoneToday v1.4.8 (Mar 14, 2010)
    1. Using LPNG library (an extremely light-weight library - it just adds 6KB) if imaging API fails (mostly helpful for PNDs where imaging API is often missing). This allows now all devices to load and display transparent PNG icons.
    2. Huge memory savings compared to v1.3 when AlphaBlend is disabled (32bit icons are now converted to whatever the screen supports, usually 16bit).
    3. Fixed text labels being 1-2 pixels left of the center of the icons.
    4. Fixed background color of options dialog to be the windows default color for menu backgrounds.
    5. Added --keyboard command to show/hide the keyboard.

    7. The 3-letter abbreviation of the day of the week is now by default displayed in the language of the user locale.
    8. Converted the included pressed icons from gray scale to true color since LPNG only supports loading true color PNG images.
    9. Resized the bubble icons.
    10. Added a warning that scrolling will be slow when AlphaBlend is enabled on devices that do not natively support it.

    iPhoneToday v1.4.7 (Mar 09, 2010)

    3. Added text shadow
    4. Added some new options for the background image: fit width, fit height, center
    5. Added refresh time setting in the movement tab
    6. Added new command: --volume:++<step> and --volume:--<step>
    7. Fixed a bug with animation rectangular staying sometimes on screen
    8. Fixed some minor bugs

    jwoegerbauer,
    No it cannot be. iPhoneToday works on any screen resolution. The LastConfiguredAt in settings.xml is used if you happen to use a settings.xml from another device with a different screen resolution than yours, in which case all settings are scaled accordingly.

    sakeator,
    I am still around and will continue to update the program, but updates will be mostly bug fixes or small feature requests.

    Wow this is really exciting. I love this app, it's really given my phone a new lease on life without its stylus.

    I'm really curious to know what the change log for this version might look like, since iphone today is so central to my usability I'm a little more hesitant than I would normally be to just dive in and try a new version..
    1
    Installed iPhoneToday 1.5.3 rc2

    Installed 1.5.3 rc2. No issues so far.

    Is there a change log?

    How to do this by modifying the file settings.xml?
    Or you need to edit the file iPhoneToday.exe?
