    Hello everyone, this is my first post! I am making a Bioshock 2 theme, and I was wondering if there was any way to edit the colors of the numbers on the 'Calendar' app. I dont know if im making myself clear....ill explain a little better.

    The calendar app icon has the actual icon itself but the current date is shown as well, the numbers of the current date are black I would like to make them white

    Is there anyway to do this? I know there is way to edit the app itself, and change the colors in there but all I want to do is change from a dark color to a light color so the 'current date' would be more visible. Any help would be appreciated thanks.

    P.S. sorry if I posted this in the wrong section..... or if this has already been brought up in a previous post

    Not much help that would be.
    ------------------------------------
    I don't have much experience with the dynamic components of themes, but what I would do is d/l and take a look at what other themes did to accomplish this, and mimic it with your own theme.

    Take a look at this theme for example - http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=220069
    It has a custom calendar icon...so dig around in the files and find out what they did to achieve it.

    Hello again, I got it to work by using SilentWalker's method thanks, I downloaded the file that was in the post of the link above and found the info.plist file inside the file, and since the only thing i needed was the calendar color I just copy and pasted that specific part of the plist file and made a new one, edited it to what I wanted and it worked!

    Now I can see the date against a dark icon, Thanks again!
