    changing the color of indivisual letters on keyboard

    is there anyway I can modify the color of an indivual letter in the framework-res.apk or do I need to edit a different apk, I know how to change boxs and such to make themes but I can't find the indiviual letters that appear on the virtual keyboard.. id like to change them so the the letters. I-l-o-v-e-y-u. I'm sure u can already see what I'm trying to do, i I'm tryiing to get this soon being that I have an anniversary coming up and I really wanna surprise my Girlfriend with this when she goes to use her phone.. I know I'm a loser.. lol


    Anyone have any advice.?

    ok so after digging through basically every apk on the droid system, i havn't been able to find any of the keyboard letters, i've found the boxes and everything that they go in and the symbols like * and the numbers from the keyboard but no sign of the indivual letters, so my guess is that there probably in an eml file or somthing.. so if it is can we change the color within the eml file or what..

    I would open something like GIMP and edit them. That is how I changed mine.

    Look in here.....\Contacts\res\drawable-hdpi-finger. Depending on your theme, maybe the numbers aren't also showing the letters? Mine do in the Flavored Ice theme.

    OK those were for the dialer and such, which i think i will change to now, but originally i just wanted to change the color of the letters on the devices virtual keyboard and i can't seem to find those pngs anywhere.. so for now its looking like i can only change the color for the virtual dialpad, not the keyboard

    Sorry. I had this feeling I didn't really understand what you were asking. No fault of yours, just my lack of reading comprehension.
