    Default How to make TodayPlus themes...

    I'm working with Plazmic 4.6 and trying to make a Today Plus theme for my 8820. More specifically, I want to create a Today Plus where you have the Today on one screen and then you scroll the trackball right to get a right-side Dock/Zen screen, a la BB Dimension Today Plus. Example: the Rolling Stones Today Plus that was posted here a few weeks ago.

    I've asked in the Theme Developer's Forum, but so far I've gotten some 30 looks but no responses.

    take a look at the samples in 4.6. There is a folder called Custom, and a sample TodayPlus type theme. Hope that helped!

    Here is a link to the Stones Plus Theme but it doesn't look like what you are describing.

    The answer is that bplay and RIM use a version of Plazmic that is not released to the public. V4.6 is a big step allowing use to make custom themes with user selectable icons and animated backgrounds, but they still have not given us the full monty to do the today plus style you mentioned or themes like the crossbar theme. That the answer you were looking for?

    I thought that Cross bar et al were all made making use of the SVG features?? Thats why now that Plazmic 4.6 is officially available, there are other next gen themes showing up.... like drop down or pop up menus, sideways flicky menus etc. I assumed (of course I could be wrong) that Bplay had Plazmic 4.6 before the rest of us.... and thats why they had those themes out first?

    There are SVG's of the Today+ and Crossbar in the samples for composer....but they aren't already to go with anytheme, you'll have to modify them to work with your theme

    This sounds very interesting... I just downloaded 4.6 and started working on a couple personal tests with this, but I have not looked into this yet. I guess I've got some checking of my own to do tonight.

    My apologies for the bad example on the Rolling Stones Today Plus. That one is basically where I am at now with my theme.

    Guess I'll have to play with the samples. Though the Today Plus that it has in 4.6 is made for the Bold, so I'll have to play with it and figure out ohow to adapt it to my 8820.

    That explains why I hadn't seen them! I am still on the beta as the official is a pain to download. Mine apparently failed at 198 of 199MB.......

    one question I have about 4.6 that I can't seem to find an answer for is about fonts. I want to keep the default Bold font (BBAlphaSans) for the theme I create, but it's not available in the drop down list. Yet, others are able to successfully create 4.6 themes with the default font... any ideas?

    do you know how you modify them? cuz when I scale down the today theme for the curve, it doesn't hide automatically, it just shows the grey bar across the bottom behind the icons. Is there something getting lost in the export or is it more than just that? Same goes for when I scale down the crossbar theme.
