    Broadcast messages

    I am using Carbide.UI to edit themes for N73. Is it possible to edit the font colour of Cell Broadcast Messages? Its colour is always black and it is not possible to see black fonts on dark backgrounds.
    Thanks in advance...

    Thank you for your replie.
    Follow the path of "Messages/Options/Cell Broadcats" with a N73 or N80 etc... If you have a message from a preset topic (or channel) and choose "view", you can not see the message since its font colour is black on a black background image.
    However you can not see some very small icons since they are also black; such as speaking man (present say callers name) at Contacts menu and small flag (presents hotmark) at cell broadcast menu.
    I checked all preinstalled themes and others, all have the black colour. May be for that reason all the default themes have lighter colour than black.

    I suppose that those cannot be changed. If you look at the high quality Black pearl theme, and test it, the author was not able to change it as well. I will try to investigate it more, though I probably won't be able to give you the exact answer this week, currently my opinion is that it cannot be changed in Carbide.ui 3.1. I know about one more color that probably cannot be changed, it color of the icon in Application Manager, that suggest that the application is installed on the memory card.

    Well it seems that you can change it somewhere, when you change all colors, the colors you mentioned are changed as well. Hard to say what exact colors you have to change though...

    Have you tried and seen the difference? Or somebody told that it can be changed. I will also try, but it is so hard...
    Thank you.

    And I tried a new theme without any black color, these items were still black.

    Hi Kubilay_

    I have seen it working on N95 (3rd Edition FP1), but today I tried it on my 3rd Edition device (I got really painful problem with connection PC<->phone that I resolved only last week).

    I am sorry for misleading info. It does not work for 3rd Edition, but should work for 3rd Edition FP1.

    Do you know or can you find from somewhere the names and code of these small icons and texts so that I may edit .tdf file manually?

    Re: Broadcast messages

    Sorry for my late replies, sometimes no replies (when I do not have the clue or resources to find the thing out:-).

    I do not think that editing of the tdf could help you. As I said the colors you were unable to change (those in the screen shot) could be changed on the N95.

    That means either:
    1) It is not supported on the older phones (it is a bug)
    -- in that case you cannot change the colors
    2) The colors are identified by different id that is not visible in Carbide.ui.
    -- in that case it could be possible to change the colors if you find out the id

    Though the second case is very improbable.
