Designing banners

The device banners appear on the Homescreen and at the top or bottom of several BlackBerry® applications. The Homescreen banner is used on the Home screen and Lock screen. The Application banner is used on the Message List, Active Call, Phone Hotlist, and Application menu screens. The banners display the date and time, network connectivity information, and notification icons.

The Plazmic® Theme Builder enables you to completely customize the device banners; you can replace banner images and indicator images with your own, apply custom fonts, and customize the color scheme. You can also adjust the banner height and reposition elements within the banner.

Note that the Alarm, Unread Icons, and New Items overlay are shared between banners, and cannot be themed independently. Any changes made to these objects on either of the Homescreen or Application banners will appear on both.
