thats the best way to learn and it is not hard to added in stuff.
go to a skin you like something in. make a set of work folders for the skin. unzip it and open the proper mskn file that has the feature in you want for your skin.
either the theme or the player or the float player or the micro players mskn file which ever has it.
then go to the object tree in the skin engine. find the object that you want in your skin. example. : virtual tree.
select that object by left clicking it.
go to the copy button in the top center of the skinning engine and copy that object.
now with out closing the skinning engine, open the same mskn file in your skin then select the object node then go to the button for paste in the skin engine and click it. now you have that same object in your skin.
you have to pick the name in the code area on the right for that object and remove the
" copy of " from the name and you have to adjust all the items in it to fit your skin, but you have the object in your skin which makes it easy for you to rework it.
the positions of the buttons and images on the player background are all controlled by the ini file for that mskn file.
the theme positions are controlled by the program.
