    [B]Phone Themes [/B]

    Hi everybody..

    i had a neat little idea to change the theme on my phone for certain parts of the day..
    as in id like a dark background in the morning so i can see the white writing clearer and id like a more colourful theme during the day.

    i know theres no them aware functions in appuifw or anything like that
    but is there a way to change a phones theme from a python script??

    Thanks for your help

    Hi neil,

    AFAIK, there doesn't exists an extension for changing themes in PyS60.
    However there is a module named wallpaper to changer the current wallpaper of the device. May be you could use that to change from dark background to a bright one.

    hi neil
    it is bit correct that you have to write a extension for changing the theme.
    but u can follow a different approach. what u can do is make an application which will change the theme according to ur location. there u can use the location module. and change the theme.
    plz give feedback abt the approach.
    thanks

    If there is not existing module for that, one cannot make such an application.

    Hi Neil,

    If you have a 3rd Ed SDK you need to use ensymble and not py2sis tool.

    You can find lot of posts in the forum where you can read about using ensymble. Have a look and go through these threads

    Moreover you will need a dev cert to sign your files using ensymble.

    If I find any step by step tutorial of ensymble I will add it here.

    Hopefully helps

    Firstly please use conventional English.
    What do you mean by
    there is sing already a location module available
    And How can you change a theme?

    Do you have an extension for it?

    Please Read the post properly before replying.

    You can find the wallpaper module here
    but its for 3rd edition only.

    Here is an example of the same.

    Code:
    import wallpaper
    
    wallpaper.set_wallpaper(u"c:\\Data\\Images\\wallpaper.jpg")
    If you don't know how to use ensymble or do not have a developer certificate, then you could use open signed online at www.symbiansigned.com

    PS : You need to use the python shell with the test UID range for successfully signing through open signed online.

    Hope that helps.
