a theme with a translucent notification bar.
I believe if I get done with my list I am going to have to tinker with a couple images and then post screens to see what everyone thinks looks the best for chrome color.
translucent noti bar.. hmm.. that is either going to be real easy or real complicated. I can feel it. You looking to get just the bar itself translucent or are basically try to find a way to make it vanish in its entirety, icons and all?
Xkape - A chrome / silver with dark borders would be pretty cool. I'll draw something up and PM to you once I'm done.
I was actually going to try making my bar translucent tonight/this weekend. i dont think itll work if you just erase all color from the png, i think you just have to set the opacity to 0
good luck X..... ........let me know if you get swamped or get stuck and need some help...
Oh I am sure I will be PM'ing you..lol
I know it'll be frustrating at times but hey, I am all about the finished product and the new stuff I get to learn.
Well, (and this is just my process) the 1st thing I would try is making a completely transparent image that's just blank and trying that. Next I would head into the xml's for the status bar and see about adding a line in for transparecy and then going into colors.xml or drawables.xml (whereever it points to now) and adding a new color that is transparent.
Than again, I've never even looked at it so I'm not even sure how it's setup in there anyway.
it would be nice to see.
or how about a mac os9 theme, since thats what android looks like...with a themed app drawer to match apples old spring loaded folder.
Loving this idea here...different versions (trim colors) of a chromed theme! Can't wait to see what you decide upon and the final product.
And you guys with 2 kids...you have all the time in the world I have 4 kids, ages 3, 5, 7, and 9. To top it off, I'm a Middle School teacher and a High School Football and Baseball coach! Lucky for me I teach a Tech class, so I have an excuse to be on the computer during the day and "testing new technology and ideas" with my phone! dancedroid
I'm trying just editing the png for the status bar now...making backup first (its been a couple days lol)
Edit: So editing the png doesnt seem to work...on the lockscreen its transparent, but when you unlock the phone its just a black bar
You trying to make the top status bar transparent?
glad everyone is loving the chrome idea. hopefully you will pick it to work on. And you can bet ill be a tester if you need one. I wanted to create a chrome theme but i am just now getting into learning how to do it. Alot to learn lol. So if you create this theme ill definately be rocking it.
