Awesome write up! When I turn the phone to lanscape I notice the background changes back to white... do you know where that line is to change when in landscape mode for the background color??

I'm not having much luck getting the To: line sorted out but i'm confident i'll figure something out - for now we can get rid of it during a conversation. For the time being we'll have to deal with it while typing out a recipient's name in landscape during message creation.

So here's the partial fix - open up compose_message_activity and go to line 22. At the very end of the line you'll see:

android:imeOptions="actionSend|flagNoEnterAction"

Change it to

android:imeOptions="flagNoExtractUi"

For those curious about learning what's going on, read all about it here:

tried this and did not notice a change =(.... thank you! Do you have any other ideas? I was given the idea to edit this line...


compose_message_activity.xml line 2 LinearLayout, add the line

Code:

android:background="#000000" android:textColor="#ffffff"

this this also.. no change...=(

I did exactly what he said, recompiled and zip installed in recovery after wiping cache and dav and still have the white text box when i go to landscape and press on the black text box at the bottom to start typing.. =( ugg...even the ugly send button is there.. would be nice to theme that whole window...

the text he posted lined up perfectly with what I had in my xml file.. i dont get it..

It's in the first post, look at /res/layout/compose_message_activity. The part where you edit the IME options.

C'mon guys a lot of these questions have the answers in the first post. I should've stuck to my original plan and included pics with each part. I know it gets boring staring at a wall of text but you got to absorb what you're reading or it won't make any sense to you.
Ah, I already tried that and nothing happened..I must of missed something. I will double check my edit... =D Thank you!!! I will try again tonight!

the part where you change the IME noflag etc..is what I thought I needed to do, but I guess I read over the color change right above that..
