(I'm NOT talking about scrollable widgets!)

Hi everyone!
You know, when you're using the launcher you can scroll from left to right thanks to a scrolling bar right above the dock icons. is there any way to remove this bar? because it messes up with some of my widgets, it makes me change screen because i press on the bar instead of just pressing the widget button with my thumb...

thanks all!

Check this thread of mine. I wrote a while back that touching on a few launcher mods. http://forums.miui-dev.com/showthread.php?4281-Walkthrough-Miui-Launcher-Mods

These are the 3 lines that control slide bar (screen bar in GB theming terms) in the Launcher2 dimens.xml


dimen name="slide_bar_height">40.0dip</dimen>
<dimen name="slide_bar_margin_bottom">57.0dip</dimen>
<dimen name="slide_bar_padding_bottom_for_workspace">8.799988dip</dimen>

Nice!!! never saw your very useful post.
I'll give it a try later.
So basically if I set slide_bat_height to 0.0dip and slide_bar_bottom to 0.0dip it'll set the slide bar with no thickness and push it to the bottom of the screen?
Whay does the slide_bar_padding_bottom_for_workspace stand for?

Pretty sure you are correct but you'll have to tinker ;)

I've never edited padding_bottom_for_workspace so I'm not sure. My guess it the spacing between the top of the hotseat and the bottom of the slide bar.
