    Advanced Plazmic/Composer question: View app on lockscreen?

    Advertisement



    I need to have a certain app from my homescreen be visible on my lockscreen as well. How can I do that?

    I initially thought it was impossible, however I am pretty sure I recall seeing a theme where the developer said that something (I am not sure what) from the homescreen was visible on the lockscreen. Now that I have a need for that myself I wish I had been paying more attention.

    Also there is the fact that the lockscreen section of Theme Builder allows you to load a svg file, so it must be possible.

    Any tips to point me in the right direction?

    Forget it, I figured it out. It was actually much easier than I expected.

    So the question now becomes: Is there a way to show the name of that app on the lockscreen as well?

    I'm glad you figured it out,

    but now I'm trying to do the same thing.

    Care to share how you managed to do it?

    Sure here is how you do it:

    • Open Composer
    • Select File>New>(select whatever BB model you use)>OK
    • Select create new Theme Button (on the left hand side the icon that looks like a rectangle with a hand pointing at it)
    • Click where ever on the screen you want the icon to be (you can move it later)
    • In the inspector section on the right hand side select what BB Application you want it to be or select Use Device Application Order
    • Select File>Export>SVG>OK

    • Back in Theme Builder
    • Select Theme The Lock Screen
    • Select SVG file (then browse to and select the SVG file you created earlier
    • Export your file and you are Done.
    Hope this helps
