im working on a (not very proffesional) theme and was just wondering: How do I make a custom slider background? I've figured out were to place it, but which size should I use, because I found something about 79x96, but is there an alternative to that horrible, undesignable size?

Which folder did you find the slider bar image and what is the name of it?

well I found the slider bar in /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/TelephonyUI.framework
but when I ssh it to pc it is a 79x96 image which appears broken :S

hi thnx for your help so far,
the file is named bottombarbkgndlock.png, but I have an alternative now, without letters, this was my idea:

cool. So do you want the word "FLYNN" as the arrow to slide?
03-16-2010, 11:56 AM #7
No, more like in the background, although that is quite a good idea ^^

so you want the word FLYNN as the background of the slider?
if so let me play with it. i will shoot you something soon

Yeah, the attachement somewhere in this topic is what i want the background to look like, and play with it as long as you want

DANG thats a tough one!!!!
it seems the background of the slider is not do-able because the iPhone stretches that image.
your best bet is to have the text inside the slider say FLYNN and have the arrow button be something cool.
Is this a tron theme?
