Very, VERY nice!
Question. The background on the full keyboard looks almost white (at least on my T5) The sample pic above appears much more grey. Any idea's?

Also, fits well with the MegaLauncher Cobalt theme

That is because the screenshot is from my T3 and the colors have been changed using a modified version of the file PinletStdKeyboard.prc. I presume that this file could be changed on the T5 as well but as I recall it It can only be tested on a real device (I don't have a T5 so I can't test it myself).

Could you tell me what has to be modified in PinletStdKeyboard.prc to change the color? Is the color defined at offset 48C1 (for 3 bytes) in resource amdc? What about the 3 bytes at 48C9?

The colors are controlled in the file PinletStdKeyboard.prc and the resource amdc0. The addresses are diffrerent for T3 and T5:

T3:
48C1 to 48C3 gives the text color on the keyboard. Default is FF FF FF -> white
48C9 to 48CB gives the keyboard background color. Default is FF FF FF -> white

T5:
3945 to 3947 gives the text color on the keyboard. Default is FF FF FF -> white
394D to 394F gives the keyboard background color. Default is FF FF FF -> white

Snark....were you able to do this?
I downloaded PRCEdit and PRCExplorer hoping to figure out how to make the change to the PinletStdKeyboard.prc but dont have a clue what I'm doing.

Actually the easiest way to do it is to make the changes directly on the Palm. Here's how to do it:

First you need a Palm resource editor. here is a free alternative to Rsrcedit, called BIRD.

Use e.g. Filez, find the file PinletStdKeyboard.prc in ROM, copy it to SD-card and then to RAM. OK now you have a file to work with. Open it in BIRD (in the list of all apps in BIRD, double-tap on PinletStdKeyboard.prc in RAM). Select the amdc 0 resource. Oh, make sure you deselect read-only first and do apply.

Go to the address you want to change and just edit the figures to whatever you like. Apply. Switch between Keyboard and tricell to see the color changes.

I hope this is correct because I wrote it from memory

Done!

I have updated my KeyColor program which changed the color of the icons in the Graffiti virtual zone (in standard 4 buttons mode). Now, it can also change the colors of the background and the key text.

You'll find it here: KeyColor.prc



If you have remarks, problems, questions, ..., just let me know.

Thanks to Velo for his information.

Great app!

I have missed something like this. I always had the wrong colors on the keybord text because I've messed with the PinletStandardKeyboard file and I'm to lazy to correct it using e.g. BIRD everytime.

Snark...Your KeyColor 1.5 program looks great. Installed it on my T3 but I wonder if you or someone else can help me with something. When I try to delete the PinletStdKeyboard file I had copied into RAM and made modifications to, using Filez, I get the following message:

Error:dm:database
Protected in Item::remove()d.

Any idea what this means and how to delete the file?

I think it means its being used by the system, and cant be deleted. Try removing it on a warm reset. If that doent work, change the ids and try again. If that doesnt work, there is nothing you can do.

Wonderful App!!! Thank you!
I got an earlier version without the possibility to set the background & Keycolor.
But now its perfect. I'm using the OS6 DIA and with this app I can style it perfectly.
I would post a screenshot but I don't have an app which can do this...
