    mouse over text (feature req)

    is it possible to add mouse over color changes to the text labes. This way when people are making skins that only use labels for text (instead of in the bitmap), its a little more flexible. Say if the text area is also a button, but you dont want it to "look" like a button, just the text, you can still get the mouse over effect so you know its selected.

    Ive converted most of my text to lables so people can change it easier, but still use text in the image for those cases, for example the main menu on my skin. I would like to use text labels, but the way the background image color changes for the over image, the text color would need to change too so you can still see it good.

    thanks

    This woudn't work well because the boundaries of the text and the button are different... if I was to compare all label's and all button's boundaries just to figure our which label is "inside" which button, it would not only be messy but possibly very slow. Your best bet for that would be to use FLASH, otherwise you should just use plain Images as usual.

    ah, i see, that would be a problem.
    I just got a copy of flash too so im going to be adding more of that to skins in the future.
