    Wink Is it possible to change theme programmatically on S60 3rd addition?

    Hi,

    1. Is it possible to change theme programmatically on S60 3rd addition? Actually I need a particular theme for my application and I want to reset it after application close.


    2. I would like to change background color of status pane. I tried using skin but it only change partial area (title pane and context pane). I need to change whole status pane background color.

    any help will be highly appreciated....

    Thanks in Advance

    According to this http://discussion.forum.nokia.com/fo...d.php?t=129723 thread, you may or may not succeed with MAknsSkinInstance::SetLocalItemDefL , but at least you can try.

    Hi,

    I tried to do this last year. Basically the local skins API is broken for a few things in 3rd Edition and the status/title pane area is one of them (had this confirmed by an S60 R&D engineer).

    It should work in FP1 onwards though...

    In any case the documentation is almost non-existent.

    I wish that wiki article had existed when I was trying to do this - looks like it doesn't work completely in FP1 either.
