WM 6.5 Custom Taskbar


Since there are quite a few differences between the WM 6.1 Taskbar files and WM 6.5 taskbar I have created a new thread dedicated to WM 6.5 and the taskbar. This will not be as technical as my previous taskbar thread. For methods on how to edit a dll, what a dll looks like, how to replace files and so forth please refer to this thread Custom Taskbar Please remember this is a work in progress since WM 6.5 is new so there are going to be a few issues at first but we will work around it.

Here is the rundown of the basic files:

- shellres.192.dll: Signal bars, sync icons, Wifi, 3g (G, Ev, 3G, H, E, 1x) syncing+receiving data icons, battery Icons
- tapres.192.dll: controls G, Ev, 3G, H, E, 1x
- HTCVolumecontrol.dll : Volume icons
- Outres.192.dll : Message icons
- Notify.dll.0409.mui : Alarm icon
- GPSAux.dll : QuickGPS Icon
- CDMA_RSS_PCC
- notify.dll.0409.mui: Alarm
- PictureMailRes.dll: Picture Mail
- tshers.192.dll: New Network Detected (WiFi)
- VoiceCmdRes.dll: Voice Command
- WLMMessengerResources.192.dll: Windows Messanger

For the Bluetooth Icon - There are two bmps that WM 6.5 uses to display the BT & headset icons on the Transparent home screen. One is the standard file, i.e. "BT On Mode.bmp", and the other is a background file, "BT On Mode Mask.bmp". The Mask file is the negative/transparent background of the regular file. The Mask files will need to be provided along with the other files in order for the BT top bar icons to display correctly on the standard transparent home screen. Otherwise, the system will use the previous (stock) Mask file, which cause the distorted image.

As an addendum to my previous find, I believe that a side effect of anyone using the stock WM6.5 dialer along with tsowen's of 12aon's taskbars will be that the Bluetooth icon will not display in the taskbar.
The reason for this is that each of their taskbars includes phcanOverbmp.dll, which seems to override the BT icon info in the shellres.192.dll. This dll looks for the BT icon bitmaps in the \Windows folder (both the icon, and the Mask background file), and in the absence of the Mask bitmap, on the standard home screen, no icon will be displayed.
I can confirm this because I tried deleting the "Mask" bitmap files prior to cooking my ROM, thinking that it would just use the regular bitmap files, but instead, I have no BT icon show up on the top bar.
If you are not using the HTC Dialer, I recommend following tsowen's suggestion regarding the battery icons. This may also correct the BT icon issue, since I don't think those bitmaps are part of the standard 6.5 install. Someone who is using the stock dialer will have to test it, though.
So maybe its a good idea to have 2 separate taskbar versions after all - one for people using the HTC dialer (including phcanOverbmp.dll), and one for those using the stock dialer (using phcanbattery.dll). Of course, we still have to work out all the kinks, yet. But progress is definitely being made .


Known differences with WM 6.5 - most everything now is controlled in the shellres.192.dll file such as battery, signal bars (GSM) and your GSM network icons 3G, E, H and G. WM 6.5 does not come with a phcanOverbmp.dll but will read it with the correct registry edits. Some taskbar developers are choosing to use it Since HTC used the the phcanOverbmp.dll to skin the pin dialer and add extra icons to the taskbar. You will need to place the following registry edits into your phone or if your a developer into your cab in order to have it read correctly:

Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\ResOver\Bitmaps]
"BaseDll"="phcanOverbmp.dll"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\ResOver\Bitmaps]
"BaseId"=dword:00000000
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\ResOver\Bitmaps]
"BatteryIconIdStart"=dword:000003e9
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\ResOver\Bitmaps]
"BatteryIconLevels"=dword:00000065
Work around for the battery images since WM 6.5 they are located in the shellres but only 11 icons are included so for those who wish not to use the phcanOverbmp.dll due to the dialer skin take the old phcanOverbmp.dll and delete all the bmp's and icons other than the battery images which should be 101 images starting with Icon Group 1001 now save the file as phcanBattery.dll make sure your registry is set as below:
Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\ResOver\Bitmaps]
"BaseDll"="phcanBattery.dll"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\ResOver\Bitmaps]
"BaseId"=dword:00000000
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\ResOver\Bitmaps]
"BatteryIconIdStart"=dword:000003e9 (Hex) or 1001 (Dec)
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\ResOver\Bitmaps]
"BatteryIconLevels"=dword:00000065 (Hex) or 101 (Dec)
Make sure you double check and you deleted everything out of the .dll other than the battery images. Tried the above mentioned technique and it worked correctly.

Below you will find the "STOCK" WM 6.5 dll's associated with the taskbar

Re: WM 6.5 Custom Taskbar

Mine

LET ME KNOW HOW YOU ALL LIKE IT!! install sdkcerts AND have to make the changes in your registry posted in tsowens post.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\ResOver\Bitmaps]
"BaseDll"="phcanOverbmp.dll"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\ResOver\Bitmaps]
"BaseId"=dword:00000000
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\ResOver\Bitmaps]
"BatteryIconIdStart"=dword:000003e9
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\ResOver\Bitmaps]
"BatteryIconLevels"=dword:00000065



some people are deleting this regkey from their roms. this will effect the signal icon, sync icon, it will point the these icons to the Shell file instead of the CDMA file. So if you have this problem after installing a taskbar, check your registry to see if this is their, if not. add it.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\ResOver\Bitmaps]
"FuncDll"="CDMA_RSSI_PPC.dll"


For the Bottom Buttons on the Newer system Builds.
Use the Classic Blue Theme.

Re: WM 6.5 Custom Taskbar

8-13-09 New Release!
Here is my latest task bar. What you are getting is a sneak peak of my soon to be released GadgetROM. This VGA, CDMA only for now. I'll get around to a GSM version as soon as I have the time. Let me know what you think! Thanks to Riley05 and Rusty Duck for some preliminary testing. And thanks to Bilbobrian at XDA for the battery layout, and Tsowen for the icon base.




5-9-09 Update:
Here is the conversion of my Round Taskbar theme to WM 6.5. Just Download and install the attached cab. After you've installed SDKCerts, of course...

Note, If you are using the Topaz Notification Enhancements, you can install that cab to get a skinned Notifications manager.





One thing to note, I am in all likelihood abandoning skinning the HTC Large Title bar due to all of the distortion issues, etc. Since I am runing Rhodium TF3D and WM 6.5 now, I am just going to concentrate on those features that are still actively being deployed by MS and HTC. It seems the LTB is going to go away soon...


6-9-09 Update:

Here is a preview of what I'll be posting in the next couple weeks. Right now, this is exclusively available in Drybonz' Bear-Bonz ROM for the Sprint Diamond.



6-10-09 UPDATE:

Due to Drybonz ending development of his Bear-Bonz ROM, I am going ahead and releasing the custom taskbar early. For right now, this is CDMA only, and is geared to someone running Rhodium since it has the dll and icons for the new Notifications Manager included. It won't hurt your phone if you aren't running Rhodium, but it will eat up some space...

I am working on the GSM icons now and hope to have something done by the end of the weekend. The current battery is by Misfortune for his TB v2 and is included and modded with his permission. I am actually looking at changing the battery, too, so, ahem, bear with me on that... .

Also, as usual, all the usual provisions apply: Back-up your device, install the SDK Certs cab, make sure you have the nuepower drivers installed (or the battery will not display properly...) etc, etc...

If you are a ROM chef and wish to use any of my taskbars in your ROM, just please PM me and let me know.

6-14-09 UPDATE:


Thanks to Indagroove, the Bear-Bonz Custom taskbar will now work with GrooveROM and Mighty Mike's ROMs. This version includes the revA icon and a few other tweaks.

I have also finished and uploaded the GSM version of the Bear-Bonz Taskbar as well! Enjoy!

Re: WM 6.5 Custom Taskbar

Reserved for my taskbar project in the works.
I'm glad you guys are starting with 6.5
I've been starting to play with the dll's myself
as one day I was curious and tried the 6.1 taskbar on 6.5,
and four words came to my mind,
weapon of mass destruction.
It just made my vogue go completely cracked out.
But anyways, I hope to be getting my taskbar Icons
finalized soon so I can start working on the technical aspects.

Edit:: Update:: Just got a Touch Pro,
so I'm scratching my qvga taskbars that I was working on
(got rid of the files already, and don't have my phone)
Hope to get cracking on this SOON!
