for my new skins i need a plug....if flash or autoit..its not important.
because i cant find a point of start i ask here for help.
while roadrunner only works with .gif pics in his STATUS showing, and .gif is too bad for my symbol pics i will do it in flash and .png file format.
what i want to do.
in the folder $skinpath$ i make a folder named STATUS. in this folder are saved the different screens for PLAY-OFF-, PLAY-ON-, PAUSE-OFF-, PAUSE-ON-, STOP-OFF-, STOP-ON-.
the screens, ended -ON- are showing if the cursor is -OVER- the button PLAY/PAUSE/STOP.
a down version i didnt need, because the time to see the new symbol is to short.
if theres no cursor over the button it should show the symbol "STATUS" say.
therefore are the pics PLAY-OFF-, PAUSE-OFF- and STOP-OFF-.
for better understanding i´ve make a floating diagram
hope that one of the flash coder can give me a kick.
so you want indicators which are .pngs? is that what your after?
with the variable "STATUS" of roadrunner you can show a text like PLAY/PAUSE/STOP (under "L") or a graphic symbol you named as PLAY/PAUSE/STOP (under "I").
BUT it only shows .gif files. the buttons i made are too colorfull for the .gif format (it only works with 256colors). therefore, that i can use the .png format for the graphicsymbols i will show, i want to use flash or autoit.
another unlucky thing from the indicator command is, it only shows one pic from the signal you ask. if your cursor is over or pressed it didnt show you the second or third symbol, like you use the _off/_on/_down screen selection in your .skin file.
some skins, me too in the simplistique skin, are using a font symbol for showing the status. thats for this skin i make not possible. its a style break in its own.
try rename the .png files as .gif
another flash problem,
i want to make the iDrive skin handle like BMW it makes. a wheel for turning and selecting functions i want to start.
now i have the problem that the background of the DirectoryList box is transparent and it shows me the selected backgroundcolor.
i never understand (perhaps its my bad english or the notes are written) the working of screens with fields in pink color.
is only the part of the screen, i make in pink, transparent ?
and must i write any commands inside the skin file. an example would be nice.
another question to the swish user.
i make a button with UP / OVER / DOWN function, if i load a image in part of OVER or DOWN it will be in another size as it draws. it told me to be 100%, but its most smaller. it nervs to bring it in size i want. if the OVER part is ready and i make a group of it. i go to DOWN and thougt i can copy the group and it will be in same size as in OVER. NONE, i must edit it again.
is there any switch inside SWISH for fix the copy of images ?
the resize of images is only if i work inside buttons, any other insert is in size like the original drawed.
