  • Need help with skinning

    I think I finally get the hang of it. In fact I feel it's faster in skinning NMC than FP or MC. Question: How do I make the playlist lines narrower. See attachment. i.e. I want to get more than 5 lines in the playlist.

    Thanks!

      Can't answer either, but it looks great! I do see some of that "trasparent" color in the playlist though

        Playlist is just making the maximum lines it can make with:

        - current fontsize
        - current iconsize

        So if you make smaller icons, it will calculate wich amount of lines and make it

            @Netsuo,
            I have reduced the icon size, but it's not working. I guess it depends more on the line heights, rather than the icon size. Is there any way to reduce the line heights? Thanks!

              For example:
              If you set a height of 200 pixels for the filelist control -> 200 / 32 (icon size) -> 6 lines.

              There's NO line height option.. i also do not set any line count in NMC, it calculates itself. So if you want more lines, make a bigger filelist control. Try to size it more (even if its too big) and show whats happening


              I forgot to mention that your skin rocks.

                Very good skin!If febs starts skinning for this, people will see how good it is!

                Febs, did you try reducing font size? I think the line height is the largest value either icon or font heights...(Larger one makes the line taller)

                  Hey Febs, wonderful skin!

                  Where did you get that font for the track time?

                  I think I won't even use my own skin anymore!

                  Only thing that annoys me about nearly all skins available (for any front-end) is the small size of the buttons! Do y'all use a stylus?

                      Thanks for all the compliments guys! The font is called Digital Bold. Don't ask me where I got it, I have forgottten. Let me know if you need it.

                      WRT small buttons, yes... it is difficult sometimes to design, because the display can only hold so much buttons for the front end to be actually useable in driving situation. Problem is, some front ends have so much functions and information to include, and skinners can do nothing but to make everything smaller. Frankly, I still feel that MC has the right balance between functionality and useability. (No offense Netsuo!)

                      Which is why I'd like to request Netsuo to make Fast forward and Next as the same button and Rewind and Previous as another same button.

                        Good idea joining next/ff rew/fr.... Just one small concern, I'm not sure if this is NMC related (i think not) but on my xenarc, if i hold down a button pressed (like vol+ or ff), it will only repeat that button for 2-3seconds... is it something in my driver? I didnt find any settings... it looks like repeat should be working....

                            For the Xenarc, I had the same issue (even with frodo, when NMC didn't exist yet )

                            I think I just set 'mouse mode' to 'Normal' in settings... doesn't seem very logical but it does work in my car now...

                              Netsuo, could you possibly have the option not to have a 'hover' image for touchscreen use?

                              Reason: when activating shuffle (for example), it should appear pressed down, but when the cursor stays over the button (which it does, as long as you don't click something else), only the hover image is displayed. So when you don't want to use hover effects, you have to select the pressed image OR the non-pressed image which means the state of the button is never correct when the cursor is over it.

                              An alternative solution would be: make the cursor go to a corner of the screen automatically after a click event...

                              I hope I'm clear about this one
