Set theme button preferences

By default the theme buttons you create are based on the BlackBerry® device you selected for the project. You can set the size and style of the theme buttons to a different BlackBerry device than the one you selected for the project. For example, if you created a project for the BlackBerry® Bold™ 9700 smartphone, the size of the default buttons are Precision 80 x 80, but you can change the theme button preference to BlackBerry® 8700 Series where the size of the default buttons are Dimension 64 x 48. All subsequent theme buttons that you create in the project use Dimension 64 x 48 style and size.

  1. From the Edit menu, click Preferences.
  2. Click the Miscellaneous tab.
  3. Perform one of the following actions:
    • To set the theme button size and style to a specific BlackBerry device, from the Theme Button Icons drop-down list, click a BlackBerry device.
    • To select the theme button from a folder, from the Theme Button Icons drop-down list, click Browse and select an image.
    If you want to create your own icons, the file names must follow the naming conventions in the BlackBerry Composer. You can look in the program files for examples of file names. For example, if you want to find the name of an icon for a BlackBerry Bold 9700 smartphone, look in C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Theme Studio 5.0\samples\Themes\Images\Precision360x480\icons
  4. To use the theme icon buttons for all new projects, select the Always use these icons check box.
  5. Click OK.
