CHome Editor v1.6 beta

This is a chome panel editor, its beta release, so be warned. Just to be safe, you should backup your chome registry before using and your Titanium_xxx.cpr files. Its still under development, so there will be some bugs and updates.
Warning: this writes and reads data to your phones registry, I take no responsibility if it crashes your windows default plugin. If you do a backup of that reg first, then it should not be a problem to put everything back to normal without causing hard reset.

With this, you can do registry edits to chome plugins, to values listed under the following keys:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\CHome
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\CHome\*all plugins*
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\CHome\*all plugins*\*all pages*

v1.6 changes:
-fixed Add Page sticking on Page10 and duplicating
-changed file chooser for adding application links, and icon links
-few layout changes
-converted cpr writing to using ATPlugin Installer, huge thanks to AppStar
-maybe more, can't remember right now;)

v1.5 changes:
-added web page wizard with opera bookmark import option
-added custom cpr option(more documentation later)
-changed some of layout
-changed color scheme

v1.4 changes:
-finished app wizard, has icon dialog now
-added Remove for panels and pages

v1.3 changes:
-added app page wizard; still needs icon support, but icon links can be added through "Manual Edit Item Values" in menu for now
-fixed issue where not starting for some users

v1.2 changes:
-removed panel filter so you can edit all values under plugins, like CClock to set right soft keys

v1.1 changes:
- made some changes to layout
- added ability to add new panels/new pages to registry and cpr

Finally one that works! (well for me anyways)

Works on WQVGA.

Suggestion:
- Can you enlarge some of the elements to 'stretch' if more screen space?

Bug:
- Back button takes you back to start screen in editing items.

Cheers :)

What task were you doing when this error message came up? I'll try to track it down if I can find when it is occurring.

I'll check out the bug. Still new to programming, so not sure about stretching for the wvga and wqvga yet.
Hi how can i create a contacts favourite panal?
In current version, you can create the panel a nd pages, but you'll have to manually edit the page values to add contacts. I'm going to start tonight after work on implementing the ui for choosing from your contact lists for contact pages and from programs list for program pages so that fields will auto-fill with values. Should have something new in day or two.

Simple question:

With that I can edit for
For that first letter of each item Stay Big ?
Ex: music = Music / pictures = Pictures / text = Text
Got it?

You can make this change in the cpr file
Look for this code at the beginning of each panel...

<Text ID="PluginLabel" Left="10" Top="5" Width="150" Height="40" FontFamily="Tahoma" FontSize="12" FontStyle="Bold" Wrap="False" Trimming="EllipsisCharacter" InnerTextType="Resource" Text="cmhomeres.dll,1025">

And then copy this code in place of it and change the last part where it says Text="..."

<Text ID="Text" Left="10" Top="5" Width="150" Height="40" FontFamily="Tahoma" FontSize="12" FontStyle="Bold" Wrap="False" Trimming="EllipsisCharacter" Text="Calendar">

Hope this makes sense.

1.2 was working for me yesterday, I added an Opera tab and all was well. Now, it reads the wrong configuration information, and won't make any changes to my home screen. I'll just go back to the old version.

Edit: Guess it's not available. Also, it never installed a shortcut to the start menu for me.

Edit 2: Reinstall added the Utilities folder like it was supposed to. Still, changes don't seem to stick, they're added to the registry properly but my home screen never changes. I have only added Opera (which worked great) and HTC Audio Manager. Guess I started having problems after that so I'm going back and getting rid of it. Suggestions?
