    i've been looking through all of the open-source palm programs i can find and still don't have any clue how the hell they make programs that do what they do hehe - i can make "hello world" now, and I can add some graphics and buttons... just can't make the buttons do much, especially hacking graphics and UI stuff - they don't seem to make tutorials for that stuff

    Ohh, hijacking the quick-text button would be brilliant! Especially since PowerDict handles that feature in a bit faster method.

    you know, you can add those to the quicktext, but they interpret them so if you only put the //steredfont// it will show up blank :P I'm wondering if i could figure a way to get them listed in the dropdown

    Phwelo, these skins you've provided are excellent! I'm currently using the original Safari skin, 16-bit blue battery and signal icons, and other Mac-centered replacements.

    Combined with other apps and skins, it's made for a very unified custom Centro!

    I tried to copy them into quicktext and the results was a word that was unintelligible.

    I didn't really expect any sort of fix. I figured if it worked in some display modes and not others, that's just how it goes. I just thought it would be worth pointing out somewhere that the color doesn't seem to work in non-chat model. Hopefully that would head off questions/comments from others like me who don't use the chat mode.

    I noticed on Red Phone 2 that when I deleted the skin the "1" key remains in red. I reseted the phone many times but the red "1" remians. I did a restore back to my old gel skin so I'm good now. Just an FYI.
    ok, i finally did this. the red gel skin should be good to go now. make sure to run through uninstall before installing the new one

    also converted red gel and plain white 2 over to verizon

    That's okay, maybe I can keep them busy for awhile::


    Keep in mind that my Messaging has ZERO code to turn the font green:

    http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b3...131-145809.jpg

    & the best part is that even though it shows up in the contact list, it doesn't affect the type-to-search feature that I love in Contacts/TakePhONE/etc..

    So your searches won't be crippled at all, you just gotta put up with seeing it sometimes.

    I'm thinking it MAY look goofy when that person calls you, depending on how the in-call screen app was written. But I don't have another phone with me to test that right now.

    Not sure if it really matters, but fwiw, I have a space between the name & the code. You can also put it before their first name & color that along with the message, but then the code's more of an eyesore within the contacts database, plus I think it looks better this way anyhow.

    Also, on a strange note: usually when you have a text message in your inbox that was formatted with color, you see it colored in the main messaging app. But when done like this, it appears as your usual system color instead.

    Just thought you guys would find this interesting, maybe it'll spur some more neat ideas.

    It's not really that bad, it gets cut off. It says like

    "Incoming call from Clayton Smith //STEG"

    No biggie in my opinion since I'm the only one who sees that screen anyway.

    wonder if messaging omits it if you put a crapload of spaces before the //STE code. that might clean it up altogether, outside of the contacts app anyhow

    Hah, well that fixes the call screen, but the spaces register within messaging, so there's an awkward space before the timestamp (or the Colon, if you have timestamps turned off)

    considering that, i'll see if i can't make the name, timestamp, text different colors when i get a chance. i might also be able to change it so that instead of substituting x color for purple i just flat out use x color for the name. seems like it should be possible..
