Question on using an image for an indicators status
I am trying to find a way to use an image in the skin folder for an indicators status. Using shuffle for example, I would like to show ShuffleOn.png and ShuffleOff.png to show one of the 2 images based on the indicator status.
The problem is I need this to happen based on when the indicator itself changes, and not having to press a button to run code to change the image based on the status. This is due to the fact that the indicators are controlled by many different plugins. Such as MobilePhone, RRSkype, RRVM ect ect.
The idea behind this is to have an Indicators.txt Include that contains all the indicators, their locations, and images to use. This way 30 different PSD's do not have to be edited and saved out as png's with the indicators in the images themselves.
So to add the indicators to menu.skin for instance, all that would be needed to be changed is to add:
to the Menu.skin file
If this is not able to be done presently, can something be added to RR to enable something like this? Blue and I are talking/working this out and came up with something along the way the iLists work. When you have an iList definition above an "S" line it tells the "S" line the additional parameters to be used.
It would need something like the following syntax for use in a skin:
the IND,[name] portion of the line is needed to keep track of what indicator on the skin is using which images, as there will be multiple indicators.
/,IND, Name, Off Image, On Image
EDIT: Blue is already working on seeing if something can be easily added.... you know how gets going on something!!!!! (So much for finishing the updates to RRMedia, the Skin tool, RRConfig, RRExtended, RRSched)... and on and on and on..... LOL
