Hi,

I'm trying to create my own theme for my SE M600i with SE Themes Creator v.2.54 and when I got to the softkeys I found out that there are actually 2 Horizontal background images and they both have different heights.

Can anyone tell me why there are 2 images for the same thing?
And why their heights differ from the height of a softkey bar?

I got it that the image heights are multiples of the height of the softkey bar (which is 28), the first is 4*softkey bar height and the second is 3*s.b.h., so they are probably layers, but where do this layers apply (what are their meaning)?

I tried to look for it on www.sonyericsson.com/developer and www.google.com but with no success...:frown:

In the latest Developers' Guidelines - Themes (http://developer.sonyericsson.com/getDocument.do?docId=65809) (r17a, PDF format), the two fields/elements are listed. The comment for the larger one (240 x 112) says "Frames. M600 and W950 only". "Frames" doesn't mean anything to me, but maybe it does to you.

By the way, there's a version 3 of the Themes Creator just out. (The guidelines document that comes with it is r15a, though, so not as new as the one linked above).

Cheers
