Is it worth to add an icon in main toolbar, just like MonkeyRok?
I like that idea, this would make it easier to turn the borders on or off as the user needs.

I think that it is better if some styles are hard-coded inside of the script. I have such thing with the overflow style inside of the MN and RFR, instead of CSS files that contain only styles which are distinct for different skins.

SDBUIDockablePanel.showcaption = false was introduced only in 3.1.0.1209. And, in borderless mode, I do both: hide the borders (using your trick) AND titlebar (using showcaption=false).

You're absolutely right! That's why you're a great scripter and I'm just a humble wannabe. :)
I'll do it that way!

Well, well :) You are too gentle and I don't know what to say except - thanks for comment. You are a good programmer and you did a great job with this script.

However, I still don't understand why hidden titlebar and borderless mode should be connected. You could make borderless script with visible titlebar, and on opposite side you could make a script which have border with hidden titlebar. Those two properties are not related.

Right again! I arbitrarily made it this way.
In fact, I was in doubt on how to make this. I had some options:
1) Create two different checkboxes in Option sheet. One for border, other for title bar.
2) Create one single checkbox and make the two properties artificially connected. All or nothing...
3) Create an option only for titlebar and make borders ALWAYS hidden.

There's still the fact that "Hide border" means in fact "Hide Panel border"+"Hide ActiveX control border".

I didn't like Option 1. I feel it wasn't worth having so much options for such a simple goal. In the end I decided to go with option 2, but I'm going slowly towards option 3. Of course, people have different tastes, but those borders are simply horrible. Period.
Let's face this fact: the real meaning of having an "Option" to turn this on/off is to bring titlebar back and then be able to move the panel. So, I think I'll let only the option to "Hide Titlebar" and will get rid of borders forever.

Does anyone have a different opinion?

Hi Gege (or anyone else with the know-how :P), I'm curious as to whether it's possible to change the size of the font of the viewer? I'm used the Gilded theme at the moment, so would I open the .css file in notepad and change it in there?

Sure thing! You need to open style.css and look at the end of the file. You'll find something like this:

Code: Select all

h1 { font-size:14pt; ... }         /*  Song Title  */
h2 { font-size:11pt; ... }         /*  Artist      */
h3 { font-size:10pt;  }            /*  Album       */
h4 { font-size:9pt;   }            /*  Year        */
h5 { font-size:9pt; .... }         /*  Composer    */

p  { font:9pt 'Trebuchet MS', Arial, sans serif; ... }
You can change each item's font size as you wish.

h1..h5 are the header elements, while p is the lyrics contents itself.

Thanks Gege! I only asked because now I don't have to scroll the lyrics as often, and I have good eyesight :) I also changed the colour of the song title in Gilded; the orange stood out a bit too much as I use it with DreadM's ION skin :D

Hi fellas! Lyrics Viewer 2.1 is out! Go get it in the first post.
(Those who installed 2.1beta can use auto-update feature in Extensions dialog)

What's new?

Version 2.1: Mar 05, 2009
- Enhanced: LV now works in borderless mode, thanks to a trick by ZvezdanD. No more ugly borders around the panel!
- Enhanced: Vertical scrollbar appears only when necessary. When lyrics text is short, scrollbar will be hidden.
- Enhanced: now all changes made in options dialog take effect immediately. No need to restart MM or change to next song.
- Changed: Mixed Mode is now the default behavior when this script is installed for the first time. Of course, you can easily change behavior in Option dialog, still.
- Added: Option to hide/show panel titlebar. To be able to do this, MM v3.1 or newer is needed.
- Added: LV icon in main Toolbar. Can be used to quickly hide/show LV. Can be disabled in Option dialog.
- Added: link for auto-update, in Extensios dialog. Thus, subsequent versions of LV will be automaticaly detected, downloaded and installed.
- Added 'Glided Ionized' theme, to match ION skin, by DreadM.

Enjoy!

Thanks for the update mate...

And good to see the Glided Ionized theme also.

Now, if someone could only make an ION theme for MonkeyRok. :)
