not sure if this is the right section, but it seems like it.
so my question is, is there a way to change the default orange color that appears behind an icon when you press on it? id like it to be more inline with the overall color scheme (something to match all the blues).
dont know if this is a whole theme change or just a small system change.

Would you be able to post a screen shot of what you're trying to change? I'd probably be able to at the very least point you in the right direction.
hmm, it may be tricky, but i'll try.
ok, was a bit tricky due to timing, had to hit the screenshot refresh at the right moment to get the highlight.
it could be since i use Aps Organizer also, just thought of that.

not sure if there is a way outside of editing the xmls that are part of the framework.res (not as simple as it sounds) but there is a way if you're using adw ex
I honestly have not tried Apps Organizer, but that may be it, because I don't get a orange glow like that when clicking anything. Tapping a regular App icon just gives me a blue glow, not an entire orange box. Does Apps Organizer have any settings in side it you might be able to change? Like DCmodder said, The only other way I can think of is getting an aftermarket Launcher (which I don't think are optimized and ready for the Xoom yet)

oh well, guess i'll just live with the orange. its not like its on the screen for very long anyway.
I use Desktop Visualizer in conjunction with apps organizer. It allows for different colors when pressing on something.
got it all resolved seems it was an issue with apps organizer. i now set up desktop vis (thanks rampage) and now there is just a faint glow that surrounds the icon when its pressed, then my apps org window comes up.
I see you got it resolved but if you'd like to just used App Organizer rather than it plus desktop visualizer I can give you my AppOrganizer apk file. I modified it to fit in with my Xoom setup. Its got no highlight color at all. Its also got some other modifications to it but it wouldnt be too hard to just give you an apk with the highlight removed or changed to another color. Of course Ive got my normal icons setup with desktop visualizer to have no hightlight color also, so nothing on my screen highlights when you press it.

i dont mind a little highlight, just to notify me that i have infact pressed the icon. thanks WSC, i kind of like the minimal "glow" highlight that desktop vis has put around the icons no.
