    Yup. Who cares? As long as it doesnt make it worse we appreciate the option.

    As Z10 does not have an AMOLED display I don't think a dark theme will improve battery.

    I'd have thought it'd make some difference, but completely agree that it won't be as much as what it would if there was an AMOLED panel behind the glass instead.

    Looking good. Imagine If Z10 shipped with these goodies.....
    Yeah, having a dark theme totally would have sold 23480234820398 more units.

    HOLY S***! Someone get this man a TV show! He is obviously totally clairvoyant!

    haha I can't wait for the Dark Theme...Since I sleep with white-out curtains, my room is dark even in the day-time (I work shifts so I often sleep during the day.) so not blinding myself when checking on all my crack addictions would be awesome!

    The API is not available for developers, maybe 10.2 MR

    Tapped on my Z10 in CB10 | #BerryLeaks
    you do not need an API for that it is done manipulating this:

    <env var="CASCADES_THEME" value="dark"/>
    <env var="CASCADES_THEME" value="light"/>

    <env var="CASCADES_THEME" value="light"/>
    This can only be set in bar-descriptor

    there is no true API from BlackBerry for changing theme colors on the fly

    a few pages back, someone posted their own work around.

    Imagine if the apps can launch in a theme based on ambient lighting. That would be pretty sweet if I was in a dark room and my calendar app automatically opens in black theme but outdoors on a sunny day it would open in white.

    You have the directions for this? I can't figure out the car connection stuff...

    Black theme will be a nice touch

    Posted via CB10
    I believe by hooking your Z to the car battery it will get a black theme anyhow....
    All black, charcoal black...

    That is why I said you have to manipulate this, I've done it many times to offer the user an option to use dark or light theme as they please.

    Maybe this is more helpful than my last post:

    Maybe someone needs to share this with the developer of the CB10 app. I would love the CB10 app to have a dark theme.
