How to set on-click actions for widget icons

Changing on-click action for many widget icons is available from Elixir 2.0 but now you can change this action for Messages unread count and Missed calls count icons too.

To change on-click action open the widget editor screen, select the widget and click long on the widget icon. A popup window appears where you can select the Set on click action option and then select the action to be executed. If you would like to reset the default action then click long on the icon again and select the Clear on click action option. Don't forget to save your widget.

  1. AWESOM STUFF MATE!!! Really like what you’ve done!

  2. It is awesome. Thanks.
    The volume dialog is great. Could that be made full screen to suit my small sized phone?
    How about making the profile/change of volume as tab like dialog? Volume manager has good example.
    The min/max button is a bit waste of screen. It will be minimalistic to make it merged to the seek bar.
    Using a clickable dot at both ends to min/max the volume.

    BTW: The OK button has white/black background in different pop up dialog.
    BTW: Any consideration to have a black theme which will suit most theme?

  3. Hi,

    Elixir 2 widget has backup/restore, I have unsuccessfully tried to find this on the sdcard, is this backed up to the could or where is the backup?

    Basically I want to know if it will survive factory reset or in my planned upgrade to a new phone. Thanks.
