    IMG,#LTINDATTIND01#,"ind_att_2OFF.png",EMPTY
    IMG,#LTINDATTIND01#,"ind_att_3ON.png",ON

    All my common indicators are in an INC-type skin file. Just have to be careful that you don't have overlaps in your indicator codes in your INC file and the local button codes.
    Using my above example... I only had to use the OFF & ON layers, most skinners make the EMPTY & OFF the same graphic anyway..

    I also never thought of doing it like that either...good thinking. Though, still not as streamlined as the orig suggestion, which would do the same thing as using the img def but w/o all tha repeated data... would also allow for variables as well for the paths.

    Since the skin is getting "patched" together, the IMG layer definition has to be specific.

    Off status = Background + EMPTY
    On status = Background + EMPTY + ON

    Is there a way to define "OnTop" or something like that, so the image will be on top of all other layers no matter what? Much like the album art does now. You do not need to define what layer you want the album art to show up on. It is an app area, I realize that, but this should be an "indicator area" and work the same.... right?
