    OK, I read the docs, but still, my question remains...

    I dont want to use the CLICKEDIMAGE, etc, I want to use the button created by visualdesigner... that way I can resize it and everything.... If I use a button from photoshp I cant resize, and if I put the clickedimage, etc, I lose the "button feel"

    Never thought someone want to use the standard buttons. I'll add that.

    And this is what I want... but with this way (without clickedimage/focusimage/etc) I cant have a different look for "pressed"... I'm not sure I am making myself clear...

    With this setting the button looks good, like a button, but there is no Pressed state... the _off and _on images are the same...

    To compensate that, your button base should be PNG and real big (let's say 200x200 pixels). So you can make it any size without looking ****ty.

    Yes... that might be a better idea..... but for quick jobs it is useful to have the standard buttons, if it isnt a lot of work... + with the transparencies for Normal / FocusedTransparency we can get some good effects....

    Get the update here
    Extract all files and register the Export-Provider again.

    Thanks Zorro! This is working now for standard buttons too!

    Here is my results, standard buttons look nicer I think... You can see the dummy button I made in PNG (clicked/normal) on the right side, and the skin with 1 standard button and one custom button (using the two images you see on the right), the quality of the edges isnt good I think....

    Now on to some feautre requests for you to see if possible:

    - Make standard buttons have Glow
    - Standard buttons have "Clicked" state, that appears really CLICKED
    - Duplicate buttons (to make it easer when making similar buttons in one skin)EDIT: copy/past controls? is this possible? instead of just duplicating buttons we can copy, cut, paste any control....

    I'm sure I'll have more ideas when I really start using it... cant wait! This is what I asked for in anohter thread and peple said it didnt exist! this is why I'm so happy!

    The export skin file is created in the phonecontrol dir.
    I found the button to create new things

    Here's what would be great:
    Another 3 properties in the background image for the mousedown, on, and on_mousedown.

    Glow - No, use CustomDrawn.
    Clicked - Click is animated so you don't see it on a pic, use CustomDrawn.
    Copy'n'Paste - I'll think about.

    Stop having ideas. It's not healty.
