reading theme files

[ Edited ]

Hi all.


Is there any way to read cod://net_rim_theme_precision_zen_360x480_t/activecallscreen_l.pme as a file ? 

I need to access that theme's data (not the activecallscreen itself) 


Is there a way to access it through file system ?


 Edit: I just noticed I used completely wrong title. It could trick the reader into thinking this thread is about cod files as in output .cod files.

It is not. I mistakenly used that title. Sorry.

Re: reading theme files

You can open pme and pmb files in Plazmic Composer, which is included with the Plazmic CDK.

Re: reading theme files

Thank you for the reply, but I was rather thinking of an Application access to those files.


I saw once in a debugger a reference to the mentioned 'cod://...' theme data path.


So I wondered, if maybe an application can access that data.


I am looking forward to reusing theme data for my apps since I always try to make them look as native as posible.

(for instance if I want to present the User with conversation cost list, wouldn't it be great if I could reuse current theme's call icons (missed call, recieved call,. etc.)?


And since Plazmic already gives such power to the User to create/use his favorite theme, why not give some amount of control to the Developers?


The Users and Developers (as you might already know) make a hell of a team Smiley Wink

In this case we just need a little push from RIM


If we get access to the theme data (packed or not) I am sure we will make better native-looking apps. A three way gain for RIM, Users and Developers.
