Only the main gui seems to abide by the $guiCorners value. Fixed for next release v 1.3.0 Ability to specify two images for buttons, normal and rollover. currently we have 3 types of buttons 1. A colored button with mouse-over color change 2. A "Normal" button with an Icon Image ( no mouse-over color change ) 3. A "Normal" button ( no image and no mouse-over color change the mouse-over color change for the colored button is optional, however that would include "ANY" mouse over color changes by removing MouseOver() from the While Loop. Other wise the colored buttons cannot have "some" change color and "some" not change color... this is not available The traybox has something screwy with the bottom middle image. Yes .... as stated here.... http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...st&p=241465 apparently the GUI does not like the WinMove() and may appear dis-formed... i couldn't find the answer to that one... if you can, please let me know Ability to specify separate height values for top and bottom images, and width for the side images. this is the most complicated question of all... the challenge here is... Simplicity maybe Best.... 1 complicated for more users to create a skin, as it is now, only a few people are willing to try... thus more complicated would mean less users here could "possibly" not be able to make skins in their desired theme 2 more than #1, the spacing for all of the message boxes ( Input, Message, and Tray ) are based on the width and height of the images.... and there is already many calculations to get that right... I think trying to change the spacing for the main GUI images could be done, however that would truely complicate all the messages boxes stated above I appreciate all of your effort on this Thanks Valuater 8) Edited by Valuater #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites additionally.... Ability to specify two images for buttons, normal and rollover. Initially, I tried to incorporate "Colored buttons" from the "GUIButton.au3" by gafrost, I found i kept getting an error and i couldn't manage the mouse-over color changes C:\PROGRA~1\AutoIt3\beta\Include\GuiButton.au3(65,22) : ERROR: Button_Click(): undefined function. Button_Click ($nID)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~^

there were other problems after 5 buttons also... IIRC

If GUIButton.au3 was working properly, This would be an added benifit to XSkin and because the colored buttons from GUIButton look so similar to XSkin buttons, this could have accomplished your request

UPDATE

Oct. 2, 2006

XSkin.au3 v1.3.0

Added - User define the "arc" of the guicorners

\$guiCorners = 25 ; 0 = no rounded corners, ( optional, default is rounded with "arc" of 25)

Fix - now passes Opt("MustDeclareVars", 1)

Fix - All message boxes follow the default of the original skins corners and header

Nice work!

If I build an application with Koda GUI designer, how to skin it?

Normally you will want to "enlarge" the gui height and width so your program does not appear on the designed edges...

secondly start here.....

then look through the "very clear" basic examples here

OK. Thanks!

This project seems really great! Congratulations!!

I think to use Koda with XSkin, I have to design the GUI and then use some text editor to replace the calls to GUI functions with Xskin GUI functions.

But it would be very good if Koda added support for Xskin at design time!

AutoIt is becoming powerful tool even for complete programs.

Another question: How to set the title bar moveable so the window can be moved like a not-skinned window?

Yes I did!

I also noticed it was only works for image 1, maybe it should be extended to image 0 and 2 also?

##### Share on other sites

it could work for 0, however not in the area of 2

it actually works 2/3 of the left 1

if i let it go any further or onto 2, the icon buttons ( close/min) will not function

I have successfully implemented xskin into my GUI, and it is sweet. However, after I compile the .au3 file into an .exe, it still require the xSkin folder do be in the same directory as the .exe, is there a way to make it so you can copy the .exe anywhere you want and still be able to use Xskin images?

Thanks

@dufran3 - Use FileInstall() to install the files into a temp directory, then specify that directory as your skin folder.

I realize you would be considered a "newbie" which would "normally" lower the value of your respose "slightly"

........ However, I see this...

I'm just curious if animated GIFs, AVIs, or Flash content works with this, or if anyone would be interested in it. It might be kind of cool to have small animations for the buttons or border.
