    I have created a few themes experimenting with different ways the icons can behave.forget the bottom icon sets with 4 or 5 icons or L icon layout.icons really comes alive and dance on the screen.

    in the composer window there is a button called theme button. click on it and draw a button on the canvas next move on the inspector screen and select the 1st "button _launch application _blackberry application _third party application_application menu_ use device order_"those are the primary commandes of your new button . with it you can select any type of applications you want the button to open.in the window below the launch application, you can select the application you want. message, option, browser ect...
    ounce you select the application you want the image will automatically change and show a normal and focus image of the application for mail it will show an envellope for option it will show a tool. after you have selected your application you can change the button images by clicking on the image and replace them by your own icon image.for best result use image size 80*80 for your icones.
    step 2
    animating your button
    still in the inspector screen click the tab next to the button tab and you will see animation.
    you can select the animation in the different stages of the button behavior.
    _normal state
    _focus in
    _focus out
    _activate
    you can preview every step of the process but pointing the cursor on the preview screen.
    the other tab is just to set your button position< the scale and transparency.
