hi, could you give me some ideas about translating the app into spanish? i'm kinda lost, any help is welcome ! thanks

Well, you have to download translation pack from first post. Then you unzip it and open strings.xml in text editor. And you can start translationg text inside xml marks <string>, for example:

EN: <string name="cancel">Cancel</string>
ESP: <string name="cancel">Cancelar</string>

You can compare the english string with application, to have better imagination where these strings are located.

Good luck

I am having a problem with widget placement and alignment. Attached is a screen shot, a you can see, the words are cut off and the whole widget falls off to the right. I can't figure out how to correct out. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm assuming you're using "widget locker".

I had this same problem and i solved it by simply using widgetlockers ability to resize widgets to make it bigger. :O

BAM!

Hope this helps

ALSO: Does anyone know if development of this app got picked up by someone else?

Make it bigger? Ok, I'll try it! :)

Which application, TxMissed? I hope so! I know Kevin is still avidly working on WidgetLocker.

I used the newest version of this widget, and yes, on WidgetLocker.

The 0.2.3 one didn't update at all. So I uninstalled it and downloaded the 0.2.2. It worked and I was happy. Then 2 hours later it no longer shows up on the lockscreen. When I try to access it though the icon in apps draer, it closes the app drawer and nothing else happens. So i set up another one. It showed on the screen and worked. I wanted to see if the app still worked from the drawer, and it asked which one I wanted to edit...

This morning it was gone again, and again I can't access the settings from the app drawer icon.

It's a really cool widget, but it's kinda stupid to have to set it up every 2 or 3 hours.... Does anybody know why it's doing this?

Are there any other widgets like this one?

TIA.

Hello everybody!
Could anyone please give me a hint on how to change the color of the text?
I know there is a config for it - but all I get is black font...

Thanks a lot!


EDIT: Got it... Thou shall not use the shadowing effect ;)

Somewhere
like the app, but the only problems i am having is that it lags my phone and i have problems with sms. As it runs, it makes my phone somewhat unstable.

problems:

Unable to type in sms. unable to respond, have to restart phone.

Bringing up my phone, lags on when i want to call. Ill put in number and it takes about 5 seconds to call out.

Drains the battery pretty fast

Using HTC Droid Incredible using Incredibly re-engineered ROM

Every time i restart my phone its invisible.

Trying to get to the config, it jjust closes itself.

It doesn't update..

Pretty much useless in its current form, but would be perfect if it worked like intended...

Oh well, time to figure out that Minimalistic Text/Tasker combo, I guess. Right now TxMissed is wandering all over my WL lockscreen and not updating, I'm also getting the occasional FC that doesn't seem to mean anything. I think I can make the MT/Tasker combo break into two lines, too.

I thought minimalistic text only does time/date/battery and weather when you get the paid one..

If missed events is a feature for it you'd think it would be listed as a feature either under the description in the market or the thread on here...

That's right, and I paid for it. And Tasker. I pay for all the apps I like/use, even if there's a free version.

It's a combination. There's a tutorial linked in this post.

Sorry gyus, this project is stopped now, at least for me :( I would really love to tune it up, but do not have spare time at all. I have to concentrate on graduation thesis at school, so that is priority for me now.

I am repeating, If anybody of you would like to continue in my work, I can give you source code. You just need to know some of Java programming language.

Hope you understand ...

Hi All,

I'm currently developing a widget with much of the features of TxMissed:

  • It currently reports number of missed calls, unread SMS and unread messages on the main phone's account (the gmail account).
  • Customization of font and background color and transparency. Also font faces (can use fonts stored in external SD card).
  • Customization of the layout (alignments, padding, etc).
  • Text messages can be customized to show whatever phrase you want.

And more features I have currently planned to include.

I hope to upload a first version here at XDA in one or two days, after I can test it a bit more, so stay tuned if you are interested.

    TxMissed - unread sms / missed calls / unread emails widget

    Hello,
    i want to contribute with my first widget. It's text based notification widget. Inform you about unread messages or missed calls. Support verbose number (like 1 = one, 5 = five etc.). Very customizable - color, sizes, text format, bold, stroke ... If chosen font does not fit to area, it will be automatically resized to smaller one, which fits. Personally, I use it at Widget Locker screen, so I can easily see count of unread messages. Tested on HTC Desire (Froyo) and emulator (Froyo + Gingerbread)

    Screenshots

    Ideas, suggestion
    I'm open to any suggestions and yours ideas, how to improve this widget. Thanks :)

    Recomendation
    If you already have version 0.1.2 and want to upgrade to 0.2, please uninstall old version first! New version has different settings system and its not compatible with old one, so it would probably cause application crash.

    Good work. I wanted to do this with tasker. But there is no missed call variable in Tasker...as far as i know.

    Hi phumpal, I love this widget.

    Would it be possible (or is it already possible) to add an option to change the word 'none' to 'zero' I realise 'none' is better English, but it's just a bit too similar to the word 'one' and when using the default, quite compact, layout the two are difficult to distinguish.

    No problem with that, it doesn't take much work to do ... added to "wish list" for next versions :)

    Would it be possible to make this widget break into two lines

    callnone
    texttwo

    ?

    I'm sorry, I have not much time - school, job etc. Hardly have few hours a week to fix bugs. So I don't think it would be possible in near future. I can add it to todo list and if will be some free time in my schedule, I will do it, but no promises!
