Sidebar added into a WB skin

A possible problem, possible feature request

Thursday, December 20, 2007 by SKoriginals | Discussion: WindowBlinds

Ok, my latest skin has been done completely in SKS6 (ok well close enough to say so, about 99%). And there are a few things I have seen that are driving me kinda crazy and wonder "What were they thinking?"

My latest is this... there is no way for WB6 to 'see' an included sidebar skin within a WB skin without an .sss (substyle file) in the skin. Out of everything I have tried and searched/looked into, this one thing seems to be the only way WB6 will see the sidebar skin. This is the line of code that has to be included...

[sidebarskin] File=***Skin folder name here***\***sidebar file name here***.sidebar

so, the question....

Why is this? Not all skins have a substyle. Can this line of code be included somewhere in the .uis file?(updated: a quick test of of adding this line to the .uis says no)

if not, the request....

Can WB search the .uis file to find this line of code or can WB just look for the .sidebar file within the WB skin.

You add

File =

to the UIS file.  A SSS file is just a UIS file renamed as a skin cannot have multiple .uis files.
