  • Are there limits to the number of elements in a skin

    Are there any explicit/implicit limits to the number of elements defined in a skin in-total or by type?

    I have a skin that has approximately 30 IMG, 24 Lxx, and 24 Bxx elements as a prototype simulation of an Android phone home page.

    Everything works fine except that one stand alone label (no IMG or Bxx superimposed), shows the upper left portion of an IMG that is defined all they way across the skin.

    If I change that IMG to use a different file, the upper left corner of that file appears in the erronous label.

    The IMG files are all .png files with a transparency layer and the skin image is a .jpg.

    The subject label is L06 and the image is the one associated with B11 in the section titled "First Row".

    The testnew.jpg file is a solid black jpg.

    The skin is as follows:

    Code:
    RideRunner Skin
    RRScreen testnew
    testnew.jpg,testnew.jpg,testnew.jpg,testnew.jpg

      OK, I'll zip up the skin and image file.

      I will also send a picture of the erronous display with some notes.

      Since this is a prototype skin it contains full path references to the images so it may need some manipulation but I will try to minimize that.

      Once setup you will only need to start RR as the issue appears on menu.skin.

      Also remind me of your ftp url.

      Regards,
      Jim
