How'd you do it?!


Using some trickery I was able to fake the drawing of it. Its not as ideal as the normal way that windows does it, but the solution works well enough to give some good results.

what about the method i suggested Cliff of using the existing text layers as a row in the pl, this could be used on any skin with dta then without any hacky workarounds, was an idea.

and since you can fake the drawing of the playlist on the playlist.psd...you think you could do the same for the main.psd? This would be most ideal indeed.

If it works as good as normal dta, i'm cool with it.

As long as i eventually can embed playlists into the main window and have dta.
I shoot and ask questions later.

Take no offense of it.

You should really post a pic of those playlist skins in the playlist pre release, maybe some people would see what can be done with it.I know seeing both of those gave me new ideas for playlist skins... :)

Hehe mine is being made simultaneously with a Winamp skin. I kinda don't wanna release the Xion one til the Winamp is ready.

This Threads first post was changed to organize the suggestions better and new threads were made for the italic text also for better organization of the forum. As for the playlist suggestion that seems to have taken over this particular thread im glad to see progress on the playlist.psd portion, but I would absolutely jizz in my pants for some playlist in the main.psd, and im awaiting Cliff's reply on whether or not he can fake the drawing of the playlist in the main.psd...

I also want to thank the community for their support in my threads and please make sure to read the first post again for what to talk about in this thread because it has changed.

Jikaru Wrote:A layer name to signify a button with a menu, keyword: menu, also keywords to signify certain already obtainable menu items to enable custom menus.

Layer keyword to signify a right-click action, on_rtclick action.
a layer name that calls playlist in the actual skin in the area specified by the pixels.


Hmm, morphing threads!

I like the ideas of these, although there doesn't need to be another button, menu? If you're making a custom menu you'd just use something like 'button modify(mnu) acla_show'. id(mnu) would be a custom layer that you use for the background of your menu and you'd just position the menu above the button.

I'll have to add support for the various commands though. Will happen sometime after 110.

The main reason behind a "menu" button is to apply functionality. Keywords for various parts of a menu would be sweet. Custom menu's could then be applied to buttons.
