    Something I just noticed. I have no indications on the keys for when i press space and return. What are the keys for that?

    To explain,in case I am confusing anyone, when ck is turned off, the return key shows blue then color goes away when pressed, and space bar Goes grey.

    Thanks for any help.

    Hey, I know what you mean...

    It's fairly easy to add control of the text on the secondary keys like Delete, Space and Return when they are pressed. It would take adding "DisplayType=Delete,Space,Return" arrays for ControlState=1, and removing those keys from the existing ControlState=1 arrays.

    In the new arrays, you can also try to have the "native iOS key shape" re-appear (they're all currently transparent) only when pressed, and make it maybe semi-transparent black for instance, so that it looks like the key on your image "darkens" a little...

    I wasn't thinking about it, and should have included the text change right off the bat, but the actual "key" part of it is kind of dependent on the keys on the images being sized and shaped like the native ones in order for it to look ok... There's also several things that are currently "buggy" and only controllable via "shared" DisplayTypes until the Author of CK does some updating, so it's also a balance of controlling only what you want without disturbing other parts, etc...

    I can try to play around with the plist after work today and hopefully post a revised copy that adds these things as an option by setting new Custom Colors to a visible or invisible hex.

    Hey, I did a bit of playing around in the plist that I had posted with the rest of those Hybrid goodies, and was able to add control for Delete, Return and Space when "pressed".

    Here's a link to the new one:


    CK Hybrid plist2.zip



    You'd obviously need to transfer any CustomColor Hex codes you may have changed, and here's a few more things to take a look at...


    These are the new CustomColor arrays that will set the Etch, Symbol, and Foreground Gradient of those keys when they are "pressed". The Hex values that are currently present are just temporary, you'll want to play around to see what works best for you:






    * The PressedFGbegin/end hex values set are black with the "77" creating semi-transparency... Can't remember as I'm writing this if I'd mentioned how that works recently, so just in case it's like the RGB hex values:

    00 = Fully Transparent
    FF = Fully Opaque






    Also, I had set the Key Radius to "4" in the first plist (it would have only affected the iOS Keys on the "Variant" Popups at the time, but now it will also affect the iOS Key shapes that appear when these few keys are "pressed")... not sure if you would have changed that before to match the keys on your images at all, but here's a few shots showing where that is in the plist. If changed, it needs to be done so under both "iPhone-Alert" and "iPhone-Standard" Styles as shown below:













    Let me know if I missed anything, if anything isn't clear or if any other questions come up!

    Hey!

    Those three particular keys are a little odd because the Symbols on them exist on other layouts as part of "DisplayType=String". I would have to look up their individual "keynames", which would give control of those "Symbols" separately, but unfortunately that would control all instances of those Symbols, not just the ones your asking about.

    Can you describe what you're trying to do? Are you working on a theme and having problems with those instances somehow, or are you trying to only theme those particular keys kinda like you simply stated?

    Happy to help further if possible!

    You're right. Working on a CK for my latest theme, ToPaz. I want to theme it individualy, i want to have something different on the latest row, but not on other instance.

    It's a draft, but i think you can understand... Whant these keys to be blue. I think it's possible for this particular controlstate/kb if i theme them individualy...

    PS : Hybrid method.





    PS : I use the Hybrid method to be as flexible as possible.... For foreign languages...

    Would you mind emailing me just your plist? I'm sure you understand how no two are written exactly the same way, one thing can affect another, etc... could help to try and test in your plist specifically:

    Absolutely my pleasure, and thank you actually!

    This is an important little fix that may help others possibly, and is a very simple functionality that I've generally overlooked until now!

    I dismissed the obvious uses of controlling Keys, Symbols, Etches, etc... by "Row" to the point where I forgot about it entirely, but now I see that it can help in some instances to pinpoint certain "Keys" that exist in different positions on the varied layouts in order to control them separately!



    The Row order on the keyboard is as follows:

    Row1
    Row2
    Row3
    Row4




    In Dacal's example, the URL/Email Keys mentioned are controlled by DisplayType=String, which would make any applied controls affect their positions on the normal Number/Symbol layouts as well, so because there otherwise are no "String" Keys in the bottom row of keys, adding separate <arrays> to control "by Row" makes it possible to separate them from their normal instances. Here's the Syntax used for controlling these "by Row"":



    All ControlStates:

    <array>
    <string>DisplayType=String;Row=Row4</string>
    <dict>
    <key>EtchColor</key>
    <string>Etch</string>
    <key>ForegroundGradient</key>
    <string>Gradient</string>
    <key>HighlightColor</key>
    <string>Hlight</string>
    <key>SymbolColor</key>
    <string>Symbol</string>
    </dict>
    </array>



    Specified ControlSates:

    <array>
    <string>DisplayType=String;ControlState=1;Row=Row4</string>
    <dict>
    <key>EtchColor</key>
    <string>PressedEtch</string>
    <key>ForegroundGradient</key>
    <string>PressedGradient</string>
    <key>HighlightColor</key>
    <string>PressedHlight</string>
    <key>SymbolColor</key>
    <string>PressedSymbol</string>
    </dict>
    </array>



    Thanks again, and I'll look into where to logically add this to the Guide part of the thread!




    @cukhiem:


    You're issue (at least the Globe/Siri key) is a little more involved, needing many new image callout <arrays> in the plist, but I'm on it and shouldn't be a prob!

    I got your email add, and I'll hit you as soon as it's done!

    Hello together,
    I was doing to messing with a VERY simple keyboard, and thanks to Phatmartino, The thememaker and this forum I am almost finished. BUT I have two bugs still
    First in the popover (the Selected (Pictured Blue) Keys) - there is one value unchanged though I changed the hexcode.

    Second My Spacebar and Delete button do not change when Pressed (control state 1)...Though I have included the code from the hybrid.plist a few posts above...

    ...what am I doing wrong? I have put the code for Phone std and Phone alert but no change

    @Dacal:

    Awesome! Nice work taking the Row feature even further!


    @henftling:

    Hey! Hope you're well!

    Can you email me a copy of your theme? Not sure if it's plist only or uses hybrid images, but it could help to see the plist at least. There's always the possibility of something else in the plist affecting the code in question. I'd be happy to take a look and see if I can figure it out!

    [email protected]


    @cukheim:

    Sure thing! Hope you have a good one too!

    My pleasure! I love helping out, and it's really what has taught me so much about this stuff!

    The theme looks great, and being plist only makes it as compatible as a CK theme can possibly be!

    Keep up all the great work!
