Hello All,

I have created a plugin for the home screen of Smartphone to start my app. For that I have created my own **.home.xml. Now On installation I want to set this file as my homescreen layout. Van anyone help me in doing this. Are there any API's for doing all this. Please help me in this. I'm using Windows Mobile 5.0 SDK and CF 1.0.

Looking forward to your help.

Regards,

Amit

The tutorials cover building a cab file, where you theme is packaged. In order for the theme to install and activate automatically, make sure that the cab file includes _setup.xml with the following:

Code Snippet

<characteristic type="Home">
<characteristic type="HKCU\ControlPanel\Home">
<parm name="ColorScheme" value="%CE19%\Home\yourhomescreen.xml" translation="install"/>
<parm name="BgImage" value="%CE19%\Home\yourbackground.jpg" translation="install"/>
</characteristic>
</characteristic>
