    Cool thanks.

    I actually think it's done. You'll need to remake the skin because the button placement would need to be scaled. What I did was make it so that the form will become whatever size the background image is for it. So you'd simply create a background image for each form the size you'd want it to be and voila it'll work.

    I'll upload version .63 when I get home. I'm also looking at how to make button presses obvious (i.e. allow you to paint an image of a down button over them) if you want it.

    Okay, it's up!

    For the latest version, please post links to any skins if you create them, it might be a good idea to start putting information about the size in the skin name so that it's obvious. I may have to increase the size of the skin name drop down to accomodate that. Let me know. I'm working on showing button presses now, and I'm thinking about how plug-ins and video can work!

    Why not use Mediaplayer for DVD too? The ActiveX control is already out there, and you're familiar with interfacing with it.

    All you need is a DVD Plug In for Media Player. Then allow a full screen mode that you can exit out of by double tapping the screen to get it to return to normal mode.

    Pretty much because of the way my system is setup. It's in my RV and I have a hardware decoder card which lets me output the DVD output to a TV While everything else goes to my touch screen. So I didn't need it.

    that said I'm working on letting you do videos from Media Player but it's not quite as straightforward as you might think. I have a few thoughts on getting this working, and have a video page started but it's not that easy, like some of the other requests so I can't just bang it out. It will come though!

    0.64 is now up with the ability to show buttons being depressed. I'll write up a blurb about it shortly. There's an example in the MBSkin

    -G

    edit for blurb:

    Basically what I've done is allow you to specify the image that is used when the button is pressed, this is in the XML called ButtonDown each attribute takes the same name as the rectangle for the hotspot. The image is drawn at whatever size the file is with the upper left at the upper left for the cooresponding hot spot. All image files should be at 96 dpi if they're png (which you'd want to use for transperancy) I've provided a couple of buttons in each form to show how it works, but you can do any form hot spot this way.

    Does this make sense?
