Thanks man. Works perfect.
btw: Do you know if its possible to set an image (e.g to make a gradient) in Objects / List Box /Frame /Client?


Also some other things I can't seem to find are:

-How to change the color of the font of the panels titlebars.

-How to change the font color of the text that appears inside toolbars ( navigation bar text, context toolbar text )

Why not ,simple test it ,
rename the original Frame object to "_Frame",(now it#s inactive)
create a new bitmap object under List box ,
name it Frame and select a image you want to display,
save skin and look what you are done ,
if you find any problems delete the new file and rename the old one :wink:

Ok I'm trying this. I'm having some problem to make it work correctly but I will keep trying...
One thing I noticed tho. It changes also the image for the rows in the tracklist. :S

That worked. Thank you. :D
btw: how can change the font appearing when the panel is undocked?

I don't see "Fonts / List item text"
I have:
ListItemTextNormal
ListItemTextHot
ListItemTextSelected
ListItemTextFocused
ListItemTextDisabled

None of them as an effect on the toolbar font. :/

I tried changing the font in
NavBar
Node\Caption - path node font settings
like suggested in the wiki.

But I don't see anything different.
The text in the navigation toolbar didn't change. :S

Is this a bug or am I missing something?

Oh Right. Thank you.
I don't know why I couldn't get it to work before.
I honestly thought I tried that.

One problem tho. I can't get it to be in Segoe.

I want it to be in Segoe (green arrow) but currently it displays like shown under the red arrow.

Ps: Do you know if it's possible to change the color font of the "Context toolbar"?

Edit: Other things I can't find:

1)How to change the font of the main window titlebar

2)How to change the font of the popup menus

3)How to change the color of the separators in the popup menus

4)How to skin the chevrons appearing in the popup menus

screenshot ? Not sure what you mean.

1)if you mean the text in the Aero frame i think it's not possible ( Aero = Black font with withe shadow )

2) if i remember right it must be :
Normal text =Object / Toolbar / SubitemFont / Font color
Select text=Fonts / MenuItemTextSelect

3) not possible :-?

4)not skinnable , just match the colors you select for the popup fonts

Thanks.
but now I've got a problem.
There is not enough difference between normal text color and disabled text color.
And I can't find a way to change the disabled font text color.
( ToolItemTextDisabled has no effect! :[ )

Ok ,i look a bit closer to this ,
most skins have gray unselected text,except WMP11 and Glided ( have black unselected text)..maybe more,
it depends on what background you use for the ControlBar , if you use a more lighter one text gets gray,
very confusing behavior :( !
