Patch Messaging Display Full Status Messages

From WebOS Internals

Jump to: navigation, search


This mod will expand the truncated status messages in the messenger under Buddy List. Works in 1.2, but forgot to check line numbers, so search based on context.

Step 1: Make yourself root.

sudo -i

Step 2: Unlock file system

mount -o remount,rw /

Step 3: Open /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.messaging/stylesheets/messaging.css

vi /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.messaging/stylesheets/messaging.css

Step 4: Go to line 167

:167

Should be

.buddy-list .palm-row {
    height: 60px;
}

Step 5: Replace

height: 60px;

with

height: auto;


Step 6: Open /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.messaging/app/views/listview/buddyList-row.html

vi /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.messaging/app/views/listview/buddyList-row.html

Step 7: Go to line 11

:11

should be

<div class="truncating-text custom-message">#{-customMessage}</div>

Step 8: Replace

<div class="truncating-text custom-message">#{-customMessage}</div>

with

<div class="custom-message">#{-customMessage}</div>

Issues

Not quite sure why but sometimes in the buddies view the group names are shifted over to the right. Had this issue on both 1.1 and 1.2. See image below for example:
