    Question transparent background for selected item in a list?

    quick question

    is it possible to make the white Selected bar (on track 44) dissappear? Transparent? Maybe?

    i'm guessing not. but hey its worth a try.

    oh hey while im posting a pic of the mp3 player part... who thinks that i should move the playlist up down buttons inwards, and add album art and track info...?

    cheers

    tim.

    I think the only way (currently) to do it is to match the background image, which in your case is out of the question. You may want to try a FULL pink "selected" bar to see if RR will treat it as transparent, but i doubt that will work.

    Personally, I've really liked the idea of a "gradient" selected bar like in CF that goes from your color to transparent.

    nice work BTW!!

    also, for the gradient idea, it would be cool if there were 3 colors to choose from (instead of 2) and also option to make gradient go from left>right, along with up>down

    actually scratch that, the best option would be allow the use of a small image file as the background for the selection bar. That way you can make your gradient any way you want, or add some type of grapic etc. Not sure how good this would be for transparency though, .gif files are very limited with only 256 colors so if you wanted a gradient and transparency it would look like crap. So i guess either way is good depending on whats most impt.

    oh btw, nice skin

    as for moving the up down buttons, i wouldnt move them in, i would probably shorten the track slider a tad and space the up down buttons apart a little more so they aren't as close together. If you want to add album art, i would put it on the left side of the playlist and make the PL less wide, that way you dont have to edit any grapic.
