rk-TSR: Automatic theme/wallpaper switcher.

Latest version 1.0.2 Supports wallpaper switching too! and better file browser has been implemented.

Here is the theme/wallpaper switcher application I built to switch themes (*.tsk) and wallpaper (*.jpg,*.gif) based on the schedules you setup. i.e, Automatically loads the theme/wallpaper you specified at scheduled time.

I am using day, evening and night themes to reflect on my HTC today screen.

Supports command line execution
Code:
To enable the application-->   \program files\rk-TSR\rk-TSR.exe enable
To disable the application-->  \program files\rk-TSR\rk-TSR.exe disable
To load the theme-->  \program files\rk-TSR\rk-TSR.exe “\storage card\rkAzulBlue.tsk”
To load the wallpaper-->  \program files\rk-TSR\rk-TSR.exe “\storage card\MyWallpaper.jpg”
(To load the theme from command line the theme must be configured and listed in rk-TSR, but wallpaper would load without being listed in the application.)

Looks cool with the HTC weather icons!

Install and configure schedule for each theme

Also included my themes(You can use your own themes)

It will work on WM5 and WM6.
Does not write anything to registry and not memory resident (not a background process)

Attachments:
rkAzulThemes.zip contains three ziped themes, check the screenshot.
rk-TSRSetup.CAB is the theme/wallpaper switcher application
Let me know.

Note: this application requires Compact Framework 2.0
You need compact framework 2.0 installed inorder to run this application. The compact framework is already part of WM6, so if your device is WM6 skip this step. But most of the WM5 devices do not have this update. So you must download here and run the installation on your desktop (then active sync to update your device). Only after completing this step install the application.

Copy the *.tsk files to any directory(do not copy to \windows directory.)
You can put the tsk file on storage card or under \my documents. Now when you click 'add' button on the rk-TSR you it should show up. But when you click the 'add' button you have to make sure that the theme you are adding must be already loaded.

To load the themes go to Start\Settings\Today

Let me know if you need more information. Glad to help you.:)

It can be custumized any way.... eg.

You can setup 22:00 to load the night theme(or any theme you like) and setup 06:00 Day theme, may be 15:00 to load the olive theme.

Bascially you are telling the program to load a theme for you at a time specified by you.

Hello,

which with this program still another good thing would be, is automatic switch with sunset or stairway. There are yearly calendars for such information.

Device : HTC Tytn
OS : WM6

When the theme changes at the scheduled time, all elements of the theme change except for the background image. Works fine when I manually use the 'test' option.

Also, its a real pain to have to load up the theme before being able to set it. Also would be nice to beable to edit an existing entry (i.e. change the time and/or theme).

Looking good - and it could evolve into a great little utility.

Are you using a theme and some background picture? Try themes only and see if it happens(Try the themes i posted and test it) I have been using only themes on my TyTn and never experienced any issues so far. Let me know what happens in your test.

Yeah, I know the theme loading is kind of a pain, but I need some additioal info from the theme in order to load it silently! So only when the theme is loaded I can get it from the registry and store it in my program! ;)
Yes being able to edit the time and swich existing themes should be a nice feature! I will do it for next version

Bye the way, thanks for trying it out and giving me the feedback :)

No I am using just the theme (.tsk). Are you testing on a WM6 device?
