    2. Also, if the output is another, rename the output file to something like "xx.ini.xml"

    <edit>
    You forgot to place a sourrounding root tag enclosing all other tags. Without your XML code will fail when loading in a DOM.
    </edit>
    Thanks for the comments
    1. Can't figure out how to do this Every time I change the name, it breaks compatability or something.
    2. I like it in the ini format because it opens faster... i'll change it to xml later

    Fixed the root tag

    This is like the 10th time I've used VB from 00'

    It's ok to break the compatibilty when you create a new object.
    Breaking the compatibilty means VB creates a new GUID for this object. The only problem with that is, each time you break it, the user has to re-register the component.
    So, this is the reason why you usually set the compatibility to the DLL once it's created.

    - Locked controls are better visualized now.
    - Transparent color can be applied to controls now (only the frame will be drawn).

    Don't panic. Open the XML file with an editor, replace the very first and the very last tag (which says <PhoneControL>) with <RoadRunner>, save it and get the latest update from VD, so this ain't gonna happen anymore.

    <edit>
    Just for the record: If you're doing a new skin from the scratch, you have to start VD by using the -Other=xxx option, whereas xxx is gonna be the name of the root tag (i.e: RoadRunner).
    This you'll see in the status line on the right side of the latest version.

    I'm gonna improve this somwhow in the next update.
