    I should probably add a ",All" since it seems like it is used a lot for all layers.

    Hi Guino,

    that would be good. I am developing another skin, and want to use switchbutton to change the image on 7 other buttons, when one button is pressed, so an "all" option would save a lot of effort. I would be very interested in that option.

    cheers

    Guino - yes, actually I used this on a test skin and tried every single layer but will try this example as well. No doubt that would assist the skinning process. I had hoped for an UP - DOWN and then the button on top to add dimension and functionality. However - when I went and layered the button on top - it simply created a black whole if partially covered, or blanked if full.

    Let me try again per the great example here on a fresh slate and try. The other issue is the skin editor does not seem to display these so you run blind a little, "a topic for another day ".

    Thanks guys for the assist - let me give this a shot again. I spent a solid hour plus with 2 basic images (an up and a down) and simply could not find the recipe to get it working.

    I will update - THANKS!!!

    Kpjuk,

    Thanks again for the assist --- could you tell me what skin and or a page I could view this as an example in...? Also - since you had to use only 1 image hame does this mean you could not grab an up/down feel of sorts even though the image was on multiple layers?

    Thanks for the assist!!!

    IMG01,698,527,90,60,"Menu.gif",Out
    IMG02,698,527,90,60,"Menu.gif",Empty
    IMG03,698,527,90,60,"Menu.gif",Off
    IMG04,698,527,90,60,"Menu.gif",On
    IMG05,698,527,90,60,"Menu.gif",Down

    Using this technique allows your skins to be customised by anyone, so it is very user friendly

    No luck - unless I am missing a step....

    I have the images but maybe I am unclear when you place them with a button on top or under. In my case the button simply blacks out the image. I can test this by moving it around and see that is what is happening.

    Maybe I just dont understand a step - but wanted to report back.

    Thx guys...

    Hi kolemieux,

    Beta Release Black Vinyl on Aluminium This is the link to my current skin. I am working on a new skin, which will use images for the "button labels", so people can change the image files to suit there own tastes. I have only used a static image so far, but the new skin will use a down / on image as well, probably only two images at most. If you have more details on what you are trying to do, I am happy to help if I can, just post the details.

    cheers KPJUK

    Crossed messages lol,

    I must have been typing an answer when you posted the last one !

    I would put the IMG section at the end, under your button section.
