No, because there is an overlay window active in dim state covering the whole screen. A press anywhere on screen (that overlay window) will bring you out of the Dim state

And we are unable to tweak this overlay in any way? I'm having some trouble finding out where this overlay function is located.

Does anyone know where the module 'BasicUIControls' comes from?

I can't find it as javascript on the Toon and can't find it anywhere online as cpp (as I could with FileIO).
Are these closed source classes written in cpp by Quby?

Yes, most likely.
Most of the code on Toon is open source, so there's a strong possibility that this particular module is (at least derived from) publicly available code.

I finally decided to mount the Toon in the living room and replace the existing thermostat.
And offcourse the missus had a comment ready right away; the hue/controlpanel-button was too bright in the dimstate.

And I must say that I agree; it's a rather large white-button with tiny black dots and a small arrow.
It's a nifty little button; because it allows you to open the controlpanel right away.
I decided it was better to invert this color scheme, black background, white dots/arrow.

Since the icon has a transparent background; we must edit its parent object.
Replace #ffffff with #000000 as shown below. (6x zeroes, for all black, instead of white)

/qmf/qml/qb/components/SlidePanelButton.qml
Code: Select all
        color: canvas.dimState ? "#000000" : (root.parent.panelOpen ? colors.canvas : colors.background)


I edited the svg using this online editing tool.
http://editor.method.ac/

The file to edit is located here:
Code: Select all
/qmf/qml/apps/controlPanel/drawables/controlPanelClosed_dim.svg


I attached both the original and the modified version (in case you mess yours up)

To copy this mod to Toon2 I've been messing with drawables.rcc (or its contents)
and found the following svg in plain-text
Code: Select all
<svg id="Layer_1" data-name="Layer 1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" viewBox="0 0 20 20"><title>controlPanelClosed_dim</title><g id="Layer_2" data-name="Layer 2"><g id="control_panel" data-name="control panel"><circle cx="4" cy="4" r="4"/><circle cx="16" cy="4" r="4"/><circle cx="4" cy="16" r="4"/><path d="M19,12a1,1,0,0,0-1,1v3.586L13.414,12A1,1,0,0,0,12,13.414L16.586,18H13a1,1,0,0,0,0,2h6a1,1,0,0,0,1-1V13A1,1,0,0,0,19,12Z"/></g></g></svg>


With this online tool I was able to make some modifications:
https://www.rapidtables.com/web/tools/s ... ditor.html

Code: Select all
<svg id="Layer_1" data-name="Layer 1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" viewBox="0 0 20 20" ><title>controlPanelClosed_dim</title><g id="Layer_2" data-name="Layer 2"><g id="control_panel" data-name="control panel"><circle cx="4" cy="4" r="4" fill="grey"/><circle cx="16" cy="4" r="4" fill="grey"/><circle cx="4" cy="16" r="4" fill="grey"/><path d="M19,12a1,1,0,0,0-1,1v3.586L13.414,12A1,1,0,0,0,12,13.414L16.586,18H13a1,1,0,0,0,0,2h6a1,1,0,0,0,1-1V13A1,1,0,0,0,19,12Z" fill="grey"/></g></g></svg>


I used "grey" to maintain visibility on the white background, but white is preferred.
I can't seem to make the background black, but I'm unsure if that's necessary.

Any guidance, will this work?

Nope, you can't 'text edit' the rcc files. Just leave the drawables.rcc as it is.
If you need that mod I will need to change the resources.rcc and add the new button somewhere. Takes some work though.

Will the existing controlPanel app use the modified button?

I'm trying to take my first babysteps into toon programming. I wanted to start following the basic clock examples given in this thread but I'm stuck before I even began.

The problem is not being able to find the location of the clock tile. I've tried the following to find it.
Code: Select all
# find / -name clock
/qmf/qml/apps/clock
# /qmf/qml/apps/clock# ls -al
drwxr-xr-x    3 root     root           224 Sep 12 17:48 .
drwxrwxr-x   34 root     root          2752 Nov  8 11:36 ..
drwxr-xr-x    2 root     root          1952 Sep 12 17:54 lang


But as you can see all i find is a (practically) empty directory. What's going on here? :roll:

Since FW 4.16.x all qml code has been packed in what is called a resource file (extension .rcc). These files are binary blobs holding all qml code. To start coding yourself, you can install the modified rcc files from the forum ftp server. Checkout this thread for more info:
https://www.domoticaforum.eu/viewtopic.php?f=96&t=12071

Then install the toonstore, and checkout the code that's installed through it. Our apps are still plain qml/javascript, so it's easy to read and modify these.

Happy coding!
