07-17-2009, 08:55 PM #1Changing color of Calandar Icon numbers
I did search and found this thread..
But, the info.plist in the location of ../stash/Applications/MobileCal.app/info.plist
It doesn't seem to be the same info.plist they are referring to... if i open the on in that location (the one in the same file as the icon itself) it is just a list of applications?
trying to get it white not black

In your Winterboad theme main folder add the following into your Info.plist file using any text editor (notepad or wordpad will work fine, just be sure to save as .plist)
Example I use in my theme:
<string>font-family: arial; font-size: 8px; color: white; position:absolute; top:3px</string>
<string>font-family: courier new; font-size: 34px; color: #500082; text-shadow: #cfcfcf 1px 1px 1px; position:absolute; top:1px</string>
The position attribute is used to adjust the height of where the text appears on the icon. Font style can be changed, but only to fonts installed on the iphone. Obviously size font size can be changed, and font color. In the Date Style section I've also added text-shadow using html color code (#cfcfcf) and the 1px 1px 1px refers to the distances away from the text the shadow will appear.
What might work to suit your needs is just something like this:

By Winterboard themes file you you mean
I don't see a plist in there?

First you have to have Winterboard installed. Then look in Library/Themes/YourTheme (where 'YourTheme' is the main folder of whatever your theme is named). Inside that main theme folder should be an Info.plist file into which you can insert the code above. Just be sure to back up the original just in case.

Sugarpill, the theme your'e working on my not have a .plist file in the main theme folder if there were no plist mods done to the theme. In this case, the only theme mods may have been made in the form of image files.
An easy fix would be to go into wordpad or notepad and copy and paste this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
Then save it as Info.plist and drag it into the main folder of the theme.
To everyone else, thanks for the compliments. This is a theme I designed myself since there was nothing out there that I really liked. I haven't submitted it to modmyi yet since I'm still tinkering with it, but here's a link to download it if anyone wants to install it manually. It's called Slick Shelves.

No problem, sugarpill. Glad to be able to help.
Maggieaco, thanks for the vote of confidence, but unfortunately, I don't know anything about the file names for the messages background. Sorry :-(

Hey guys, any chance anyone knows how to change the color of the calendar app text WITHOUT winterboard? I've themed my phone by porting directly using ssh transfer protocol. I'd like to avoid using third party apps if possible.
