    How to IMG over INDICATOR

    Anyone know how to place an image over an indicator like ALBUMART?
    It looks like the ALBUMART hides the image..

    Currently can't be done.

    IMG's are drawn in a specific layer. I & J codes are drawn on top of those layers.

    A work around is to use:

    IXX,...,"FILE;$pathnametoimagefilename$"

    instead of IMG. This will allow you to put an "image" over an indicator.

    WOW, I was just having a problem with this yesterday and poof here's the answer to my delimna. I've been playing with Sal R.'s albumviewer addin trying to get it to work with multiple skins and his buttons are 4 layers of jpgs. Unfortunately, while they look great on day skins they're almost invisible on darker skins. So I figured just put a light image under it and it would work - WRONG. Until I read this thread, I didn't realize I could mix IMG and IXX to get the desired effect. I now use IMG for the button empty and off image while the button down and on images are IXX images. Works a treat!

    That is a true testament to RR flexibility.

    Always something new to learn about the program.

    Me too.

    I have been struggling to figure out a way to tone down album art in a night skin. Using this as a baseline idea I can get back to work on adding a semi-transparent gray box over the top so white/bright album art isn't so overpowering out on highway drives at night.

    Good stuff.
