Theme SVG elements and attributes

HI all,


This thread is meant to accompany the Digging Deep: Using Theme Studio 6 to Build Themes for BlackBerry 7 series of blog posts. Feel free to post here any SVG elements you have come across to make your own custom themes. Whether the element was not previously listed, you have more detailed information about the element or have determined some additional attributes which can be used.


Once we get a good base this will be turned into a public Knowledge Base Article.


To get us started, here is the list of some elements from the article:

  • <image>
    • xlink:href
      • CurrentDateTime - The Clock and Date elements
      • AlarmIndicator - Is an alarm set?
      • BatteryLevel - The Battery Level icon
      • Roaming - Icon to indicate the device is roaming
      • SignalLevel - Cellular signal level icon
      • WLANSignalLevel - The WLAN Signal icon
      • GPSMode - The crosshairs icon for GPS
      • Image - Used for specific system images such as wallpaper
      • OwnerInfo - Used on the Lock Screen



Goodbye everybody!

Re: Theme SVG elements and attributes

How do I or Can I reference on the home screen "OwnerInfo" for example? Lets say i want to access this in a SVG as a text. Is this possible?


The quick answer should be yes right? How do I do this?
