[Locked] How about make some kind of gauge for keyboard indicator?

I would like to use custom icons in my keyboard indicator for layouts (and full-size icons for capslock/numlock). What do you think about this, is it possible?

I think you can configure the emblems for caps/num lock, but I don't see what you mean by full-size (they are emblems, they can't be too big or you won't see the actual icon)

It will be ok if part of image will be transparent. For example if capslock/numlock full-size image will be as a frame Now it placed in top right/left corners only. Why not in bottom corners or center?

well, there is no real reason
the only fact is that we have to display 2 emblems on top of an icon, and there are not a lot of ways to do that
but maybe you can make a mockup to explain how you would see it

I'm not good in painting, but something like that http://imageshack.us/a/img845/8756/mockupw.png

Also, using custom icon for keyboard layouts is more important then capslock/numlock icons, I think.

well, I think we can add a "bottom/top" position parameter
about image 1, the emblems are so small that I doubt you can see them clearly on a 48px icon (or even smaller).
