    How could I display search results in a new window?

    I rewrote my Alpine Amber search_browser.skin to have much bigger keyboard keys for safety. However, it doesn't leave much room to display the search results. I would like to display the results in a new window, I guess a new skin. The problem is, if I use the directory list label it displays the results in full path form, IE C:\Mp3s\Songs . . .. How can I get it to display like it does in the results on the search_browser with the folder icons? I've been disecting it through the skin browser but I can't figure this one out. Read skin commands on it too.

    Why don't you replace search_browser.skin with your results screen (without a keyboard and text box), then have a searchfiles button on it ? This will bring up osk.skin and when you hit enter, the results will come up in the previous screen.. this is exactly how it happens on the audio_browser, except you get to customize the skin that display the results.

    Hmmm, instead of the OSK, would I be able to use my skinned keyboard? Because that is the only reason I did this - to make the keys huge! If so, that sounds like it would be perfect idea.

    The icons are loaded from the skin's folder (Folder.ico/gif and Media.ico/gif) there are default ones in case no images are found on the skin's folder.

    I did not understand the second part of your question.

    I do not understand the second part either.

    Did I seriously write that? Anyway, what I meant was this:
    If I opened Search_browser.skin in a text editor and then copied everything and pasted it to a new skin called results.skin, it would not display the search results. It only displays the results, formatted with folder icons, on the searchbrowser.skin screen, like it was a local control for only that screen. I was just wondering what that S01 control was if it is not a Launch list, a Directory or a playlist.

    As far as the original problem, I'm just gonna redo my OSK skin to be huge and use the search the way it works with BMV2. Thanks.

    I did add "extra" support for that search_browser.skin so that it would display the same as the audio_browser in order to display searched results.. It is very possible to make the results display on a Search_results.skin if present.. I would simply have to add support for it... but first I'd require a screen to test it with..
