Thread: How do I determine the slider location?

  1. #1
    Default How do I determine the slider location?
    I am trying to create a theme creation helper..

    iPod Touch 2G Winterboard Theme Creator

    and im stuck on something (and have a few questions)

    1) how does the ipod determine the location of the slider?
    (look at the 3rd post)
    I can get the default one perfect, but when the slider is a different size... how is it placed? does it decide if the image is taller to start at the bottom?? any ideas would be great

    2) tap unlock/middle slide unlock... How do these work.
    Any tutorials on how to create these kinds? (So i can see whats needed to adjust code for displaying)

    For fun i tried replace the images on a slider unlock with the middle slider (Like slide your finger fingerprint style) and nothing showed at all....almost had to restore my ipod to get back in!!! LOL tapped and slid like crazy and found a spot that worked

    3) the top half, with the clock, what image is used for overlay?

    the slider cannot go past the top of the default bar where the slider stops..otherwise anything bugger will go below the screen

    the tap and middle slide are either the sames size as the sliding bar or transparent up until your image depending on the one you use

    the layer bhind th clock is called "UILCDBackground" here is a transparent one if you want it to dissapear

    put it in UIImages folder

    So, it cant go over the top of this? (see attached)

    or it cant go over the top of the slider button?

    whats the difference between the attached image, and bottombarbkgnd.png??

    do they need to match when creating it? or do they just need to be the same size?

    doesnt really matter between the two i try to make both

    and where the top of the slider ends is where it always ends

    ok, so if i set my code to put the top of the slider starting at that location - it should be good cool

    what about tappers? A few i have seen have a longer image with half as the starting image, then the other half as the tap image? How does that work ?
