I was reading the 3125 forum and came across Omega2008 and Gryphon talking about the "standard carrier plugin" and it's ability to pull up the Comm Manager. I hadn't even noticed that it did that on the 3125. Very cool. I checked it out and it's a great feature. So, I went to my i-mate and tried it, but it doesn't work 'cuz it's not selectable. I checked the plugin CLSID and it's the same as the one that the default homescreen on the i-mate is using. So, I'm wondering why it loses it's ability to be selected and pull up the Comm Manager? I also noticed there is some wording in the XML regarding wifi which totally piqued my curiosity!

Any ideas why it doesn't work fully on my i-mate? I originally cut the plugin out of the 3125's homescreen and pasted it into my current i-mate one. When that didn't work, I copied the entire screen from the 3125 and pasted it into the i-mate and had the same issue. So, it's not a typing error.

<plugin clsid="{E09043DF-510E-4841-B652-388316977A7A}" name="carrier" height="46">
<allowselection/>
<background>
<format state="selected" bgcolor="COLOR_HOMEHIGHLIGHT"/>
</background>
<label font-size="24" font-weight="bold">

<date y="21" halign="right"/>
</clock>
</plugin>

My guess would be it's different variations in the ROM. The 3125 probably has some customizations to the ROM that the SP5m doesn't, and this may be one of them. It seems like it should work though because they both have the Comm Manager, but there's probably some different code somewhere or another.

FYI-I just applied this to my Sprint Q homescreen. I was at the Cingular store tonight, and noticed the cool comm manager selection from the carrier plugin on the Blackjack. So I decided to try it out on my Q. All I did was take the coding you posted above and put the red section in my carrier plugin:

<plugin clsid="{E09043DF-510E-4841-B652-388316977A7A}" name="carrier" height="46">
<allowselection/>
<background>
<format state="selected" bgcolor="COLOR_HOMEHIGHLIGHT"/>
</background>

<label font-size="24" font-weight="bold">
<text><carrier/></text>

With that red section placed in my carrier plugin in that exact location I can now select the plugin and bring up the wireless manager. Very cool.

That's good Smeg. I'm now trying to find my way in the land of PPC .tsk homescreens and long the good ol' days of .xml. laugh.gif It's all relative I suppose. The above plug-in is great...when it works on your device of choice.

That's one of the things I missed a lot wiht PPC homescreens. XML is just so easy to customize.
