I discovered a small annoyance in this skin. I'm not sure why it does this but every once and awhile the minimize exit and full mode buttons dont work. I think it has something to do with how I have the playlist coded but I'm not sure. If you have any ideas as to why it would do this, feel free to let me know. Also, this could just be my computer and it wont affect anyone else. I look forward to some input.

hey Cerebro... nice skin..

so far the "bugs" u mentioned ve not creeped in...

if the playlist & EQ are off & the video view is turned on it still comes out as if PL & EQ r on..

Yeah I havent figured out how to code it to show up where they are if they are not turned on. Any suggestions?

Your Close/Min/Max buttons are not working cuz of how they're next to the song/artist title. I know it sounds stupid, but sometimes if your buttons are lined up close to that info in the skin, and the artist/song title info is long enough that it needs to scroll, the buttons near the scrolling won't work. You might notice that you don't have the problem when playing something with a short title.
I've had that problem in the past...the only cure I could find was to design skins with the buttons below or above the meta data, never next to it.

Thats kinda wierd! Thanks for the info on that little bug. I'll have to keep that in mind for my future skins. I appreciate your help with this matter.

I'm messing around with the zIndex but I cant get that to work to fix the three buttons either.

a few tricks...
(insted of the greater than & less than signs i will use " [ " &" ] " signs, coz the commenting code of wincusto removes those signs)

for the buttons : u seem to ve used the buttongroup method for the buttons... use the button method (the buttongroup method gives the problems J the Pirate mentioned).. ie create subviews for the buttons & place the buttons inside the subview.

[subview id=someID left=value top=value width=value height=value]
[MINIMIZEBUTTON id=someID left=value top=value width=value height=value image=img.ext hoverimage=img.ext /]
[RETURNBUTTON id=someID left=value top=value width=value height=value image=img.ext hoverimage=img.ext /]
[CLOSEBUTTON id=someID left=value top=value width=value height=value image=img.ext hoverimage=img.ext /]

for the video view : in the jscript create booleen variables for each view (for EQ, PL & Video) that sotre wether the views are on/off & depending on these variables the video view can be opened right below the main skin or below the EQ & PL.
i will just show u the code u can use for the video view...

var EQon = false;
var PLon = false;
function VidView() [
if (EQon || PLon) [videoviewID.visible=true; + EQ or PL height); ]
else [videoviewID.visible=true;;]

in this case whenver u turn EQ & PL on change the value of the above variables to TRUE...

go explore...

We need a WINcUSTO SUITE!!! I say lets get a Mud theme and a Ice theme for all the major skin programs!!!

I really like Mud. And Ice. Maybe a dash of another style

Nice skin!

Great skin, I like how the EQ, video, and playlist move into place and don't get "lost" from the rest of it. Thanx!
