    Creating a Theme with Weatherbug Slot

    I have created several "themes" (New icons, and backgrounds), and am now ready to move on to some more advanced themes.

    I have a theme with 4 icons on the bottom on the Home Screen, and in the top right a place for another icon (weatherbug). I did all this in the Theme builder, and not composer.

    My question is when I place the weatherbug app in the 5th position, all that shows up is the ladybug with the temp in it... not the nice conditions icons, like I see on other themes.

    So what is the trick? Is this done with a SVG file from composer? Or can it be done in the Theme builder?

    I searched and searched for this and cannot find any videos or tutorials anywhere.

    Thanks,

    I place it using theme builder but I make it slot #1. I don't think that would make a difference. Have you done a batt put on the device its installed on? Sometimes mine stick on the default icon until I do that. Also the simulator will always show the WB icon.
    Also, are you setting the home screen icons in order by application hierarchy or by selecting the box marked application order?

    Yes, I have pulled the battery, same results.

    In the Zen properties, I have Use Device Application Order checked. Under Applications, I have Render Home Screen Over Banner Checked.

    This is on the phone, btw, and not the simulator. I don't have much luck with the simulator. When I try to run the sim from the Theme builder, I get an error to Reload the OS on the simulator screen. So I have to export the theme as an ALX file and copy that into the simulator folder to be able to test any themes.

    Thanks for your reply!

    Forgive me because I'm not at a computer for exact directions. I would recommend creating the theme as a custom and create a zen like theme from there, more options are available. Honestly I'm not sure if the weatherbug will work right in the zen template. In the zen template inspector pane the third option down (I think) is where you assign properties for the icons. There you will see a checkbox you can select use application order. It may not be there in the zen version, again forgive me for being away from a computer right now.

    What I did was load my Windows 7 theme, save it as another filename, then changed the type to Custom.

    Do you think it's not working because I started the theme as one type and changed mid design?

    Thanks,
    ...Thomas
