Tutorial: How to Make or Edit CHT Widgets for Windows Mobile

How about a Windows Mobile article for a change? XDA member poyensa posted a great tutorial explaining how to create or edit any Cookie Home Tab 2.0 widget. Basically, the original poster compiled the how to´s including quotes from developers but on a simpler way to understand the whole process of editing/creating widgets. The guide also includes an extensive, and very well documented, way to solve most common problems. You will find a section where you can create your own widget as well.
The developer invested a considerable amount of time on this compilation and surely your feedback will be well received. Olé!

Are you interested in making or editing a CHT widget? To make a widget for Co0kie Home Tab 2.0.0 is not such a difficult job as you may think, I tell you by experience. I have no previous formation in programs or informatic code but i could make a few widgets(*) and I would like to share this experience with you. This is not so altruistic work, I am expecting a huge amount of widgets made by all of you to install and enjoy in my brand-repaired HD2

Co0kie Master has allready published a guide for making a CHT widget (it is into the widgets kitchen); also Genius_Rat_2665 has made a tutorial for making a cht clock widget, so -the third time lucky- lets bring here all that knowledge and try to make a simple widget step-by-step. Also this could be a good place to share and learn each other some code for widgets. Things like how to make an blinking element, how to change number in text, how to read from the registry, etc.

(*) What is for sure is that no one widget I could ever do without the help of others. Lets start quoting the existing Co0kie’s guide

Continue to the original thread.

Material and Material Dark Hit Samsung’s Theme Store

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more. However, Theme Store...

Swappa’s New App Helps You Value Your Device

There comes a sad time in everyone's life where you must part ways with your gadgets.

Alternatively they might enter the world of the second-hand market, and become someone else's daily driver. Swappa is especially popular for this purpose here at XDA, where thousands of users trust the site enough to buy and sell their devices through it.
