Playlist example

I'm trying to do a playlist and getting very lost. Lots of tutorials deal with the player and little else. I've been looking at other skins to investigate the .xml and I'm none the wiser. It seems to me that the play list is just a container with bogstandard buttons thrown on top. Are these buttons like the player controls? ie

<button
action="EJECT"
x="206" y="127"
image="simple.eject"
tooltip="Eject"
/>

Since I don't really know what I'm looking for and the absense of the default winamp 5 skin makes it a little confusing. I'm confused me.

the playlist is a standard component that is automaticaly skined when you do the standard frames.

So, are you saying, as a skinner, you have little or no control over what goes into the playlist? - But what if you want to do something different - kinda like what I have in mind.

Then you would need to rebuild your standardframe layout to include additional buttons etc etc. Is that what you are after?, having control buttons on the playlist ?

If you do this it will also place the same buttons on any other standardframe skinned windows.

Check out MMD3 for an example of playlist/standardframe with additional buttons.

Ulitimately? I'm not sure....I just wanted an example to play around with. I did have this idea about bolting the playlist onto the main player and you could stretch it from the top (as oppossed to the bottom right hand corner) But I might want to put it in a drawer..

I'll check out the example.

if u want to add buttons to just the playlist editor then just make a normal component tag like in ur main window. after that define your layout tag and put in ur std frame group bit then make a new group and put ur buttons into that then when ur done put that after the std frame group and you should have buttons above ur std frame bit and only in ur pledit window..if u need more help on it just have a look thru my pledit.xml in my skin Palillo as i used this in it..also look thru the standardframe.xml file so u can code the standard frame for ur skin.

matt, Have you got a direct link to your Palillo skin. I couldn't find it on your site or on deviantART. Cheers

And another question. Do you need the standard frame script in order to have the standard frame OR is is a script to act on things FOR the standard frame. See the difference?

Ingenious stick skin. I like the four vis bars. Are you aware of the playlist winshade mode bug?
