    here is the first draft of the skinning guide. If anyone has questions on how to do something post them in this thread. once answered I will add it to the guide. I want to give the skinners the ability to do anything with the skin. I do not want MMC to hinder creativity in any way, so if there is something that can not be done with mmc's skin system I will do my best to make it so it gets implemented.

    Their are two amendments to the skin guide one is adding album art:
    can be placed on any view or subview.... all the parameters are self explanitory and follow the same standard as the others in the guide
    <albumArt
    id="albumArtDisplay"
    backColor="Transparent"
    x="518"
    y="0"
    width="107"
    height="107" />

    and the other is that now you can leave out the [normalImage=""] command and it will use the x,y coordinates and width and height dimensions for a hotspot... however any buttons that usually have a dual state...ie.. shuffle, play/pause, repeat, music, video, radio, power, ect... will still need an image associated with it (at least one)

    Okay, was a bug. Will get a patch out today sometime. Leave your skin that way, and the patch should straighten it out for you.

    Thanks

    Not sure if I am putting this in the right thread, but I am sure you will all tell me if I am not. I am creating a skin for my MMC and I was just wondering if it would be possible to get the icons used in the default skin from somewhere. I really like the icons and am looking to use a couple of them in my skin. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
