    You're welcome. if you have the same amount of anim lines as you do buttons, yes... Leave that coding... You can add either a today area, or an activation icon from the "theme the home page" tab in theme builder.

    Daredevil - I think you and jason are on the right track, but to me, it looks like you actually have too much code. To think about it in words, you only need two lines total if you have two buttons. If you are keeping both buttons on screen whether the dock is visible or hidden, you need to make sure that they are on a different layer than your dock. Then the only code you need is 1 line of code for each button basically saying:

    when button 1 is focused on, move the dock off screen

    when button 2 is focused on, move the dock to its original position (ie (0,0))

    to use the code you have in this post, it should something like this.


    ####animateTransform xlink:href="#Buttons" id="_anim_l1" attributeName="transform" type="translate"
    to="0,0" dur="0.5s"
    fill="freeze"
    begin="Theme_Button_6.focusin" /####
    ####animateTransform xlink:href="#Buttons" id="_anim_d1" attributeName="transform" type="translate"
    to="0,65" dur="0.5s"
    fill="freeze"
    begin="Theme_Button_7.focusin" /####


    provided that button 6 is the one you are going to use to show the layer and button 7 is the one you are going to hide it. Also providing that you are moving the layer down by "65".

    One thing that may help you understand the code and how it works, is my tutorial "hidden dock with highlighter" that is here on pinstack. Before you even look at it, everything I learned started out with this tutorial here and eventually expanded my knowledge by just messing around with it. Blackberry.com has some good guides (you will probably have to fish around for em) for svg coding. I think I posted some links somewhere here in pinstack as well, they may be on that thread with my tutorial. I have found that once most people understand how the code works and what it is doing to your theme, than things make a whole lot more sense and you save yourself time (and extra coding).

    I have used both this 9of13 tutorial as well as holster27s highlighter tutorial and am having some problems getting my theme to work properly on the storm.

    I have a ten button hidden dock that is opened and closed with seperate buttons that overlap each other. The close button is in the layer with the hidden dock and the open button is in the layer below. I have used only the two lines of code to open and close the dock using the open and close button

    to="0,0" dur="0.1s"
    fill="freeze"
    begin="Open_Button.focusin" />

    to="0,200" dur="0.1s"
    fill="freeze"
    begin="Close_Button.focusin" />

    I have renamed the layer to buttons and changed the slot of each button to the order I want. The dock hides and appears as it should, the problem I am having is that all of the hidden dock buttons open whatever is in slot0. The proper icons appear for the proper slot (ie slot1 had slot1 icon, slot2 has slot2 icon ....), but they all open slot0.

    What am I doing wrong?

    It sounds like you need to go edit the code. There are two "slot" codes that sometimes have to be fixed. The first ones you see are the pictures or icons, the second one in the code further down is the applications that are opened. Alot of times this will happen when the the interactivity focus is out of order in composer.

    But a relatively easy fix.

    First Post! Can someone please tell me where I change the Navigation to "No Memory" in Theme Builder 5.0? I am working on a sliding dock for the Storm.

    Thanks

    First off, this has been a GREAT tutorial. I've learned so much about composer just from this . . . thanks to everyone who has contributed.

    Which . . leads to my question. So, I'm making a hidden bottom dock for my 9700 . . . on my home screen, I've got two today icons with 3 subentries each . . . so they pretty much fill up the entire screen. When I activate my bottom dock, it raises up from the bottom, but the last two lines of my calendar today entry are showing up OVER the bottom dock and its icons.

    Is there a way to make the dock's SVG file sit OVER whatever is displayed on the home screen, instead of underneath??

    Thanks

    Perfect tutorial, thank you very much. picked up composer today, and took me 20min. Did anyone figure out how to hide the dock after a few seconds of inactivity, instead of having to scroll over profile icon or an invisible icon?
