Re: (21 Feb) 9 Button VGA Action Screen in Color and B/W

So I just woke up, and I see a poll with 10 options on what to include on a 9 option app?

Oh well, the app is customizable through the registry. If anyone see's a customizer for HTC's action screen that helps you set the icons, program links, and names let us know!

Re: (21 Feb) 9 Button VGA Action Screen in Color and B/W

OK... Here's what I ended up with.. I'm happy. TY for the reg to keep it from preselecting the first icon. I also made separate focus/press.. slight changes. I decided to go with 2 columns of 3 so I was not using a program/action that I could access in just as many steps already. Choices: New Text, New Appointment, New Note, New Photo, CapSure, Toggle Bluetooth

Here is opening screen: Selecting Action:

And Pressing/Accessing Action:

I am working on a application that will assist in the registry edits but the other stuff is rather complicated (converting bmps to brns).

Re: (21 Feb) 9 Button VGA Action Screen in Color and B/W



i think u should swap the note and contact icons:

new contact has to do with communications... like email and sms
and note belongs with tasks and calendar...

and the bottom line is perfect.... what u think?

Here is what it is for me
\Storage Card\Program Files\GoogleMaps\GoogleMaps.exe

another suggestion of a action button would be a search button like using "Live Search".

Re: (21 Feb) 9 Button VGA Action Screen in Color and B/W

with all the suggestions of different buttons maybe you want to make a 12 button action screen instead of a 9, this would certianly fit the screen nicer. he he, theres always someone willing for others to do more work.....today it happens to be me, sorry.

Try this and let me know if it works. It is only the registry edit to map the GPS button to google maps.(no files)

This is only for the version 1 action screen (assuming I am developing more... )
