Softkey button problem - Carbide 4.0
[B]Can anyone please explain why I keep having this 'silly' problem when creating a theme for my Nokia N97 mini...?[/B]
(F.Y.I. I'm using the [B]TMA S^touch plugin[/B] because the other plugins I found for S60 v5 or N97 are not good enough for me...)
First I made a completely white theme...this was easy to do & didn't encounter any problems. After that I wanted to create a completely black theme...
[COLOR="Silver"]Why? Simple...for example: at night, while driving, I get a call... (cell is in car holder) -> the white theme is so bright that it lites up my face (lol :p)[/COLOR]
[B][U]The problem I'm having is this:[/U][/B]
After installing the black theme I notice that [U]my softkey buttons aren't visible[/U]. I don't understand how that is possible because [B]all I did was changing the white to black & vice versa (starting from the white theme)[/B]
[B]The white theme shows softkey buttons & the black one doesn't...[/B] I tried using the multi-piece elements like in the white theme. Then I tried it with an SVG-image that I created by combining the nine pieces in one image...but again no luck... I also tried changing the next items:
... (probably all the "Area"components wich could possibly affect the control area and/or softkey buttons)[/I]
[B] THE only thing that works is converting to bitmap but in that case the buttons look like crap...[/B]
I've added a few screens to clarify...
PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS PROBLEM... THANK YOU!!!!
Re: Softkey button problem - Carbide 4.0
Try to change the color for the softkey background mask..you could find it in N97 plugin (i'm using v.3.2.0)
Use white (#ffffff), then it will make the softkey button image goes solid. Black (#000000) for a complete transparent.. or you can make your own gradients effect
Its also works for the others symbian 5th series...:)
