    Hey all...

    hope I'm in the right forum for this..

    I'm trying to skin for pure messenger and working with very basic skins for now. Using pure messenger as a platform I'd like to skin for more apps later just trying to get a start. I can't for the life of me figure out why I have a line down the center of my image. It only happens after using the 9patchpng tool in the SDK.

    These are my steps:

    In photoshop cs - create a new file 320x200 transparent bg
    Create my design
    save as PNG non interlaced
    open 9patchpng
    define my stretchable areas ( may be doing this wrong....probably am )
    save as 9patch
    on the desktop edit file name to exclude the .9
    transfer to skins directory.


    Any thoughts... I've only been working with this for a few hours so I'm as new as they get lol!

    Thanks for any insights!


    EDIT: got it working now... missing a piece of code in the xml file...

    Thanks! Actually your blog was the missing piece lol! I'm still finalizing the skin, trying to get it to work on all sizes in normal mode then I will send to you. Theme will be called "Simply Blue" :)

    Working on a few other colors but have to get the sizing issues nailed down first!
