  • Colouring Frames

    I've been trying to add some color to my components for a few days now. There are only a few things left, which I can't figure out:

    - little elements on scorllbars
    - backgrounds of scrollbars
    - lines between columns
    - shadow colors of all buttons

    come on, people. there has to be someone out there, who knows, how to do this.

    i know, it will have to be some entry in the studio-colors.xml / system-colors.xml, but i could not find out, which one it is.

      Best thing to do when your not sure what bit colours what bit on the skin, is to work your way through system-colors.xml from the base skin, changing a value at a time for something that stands out, say for instance bright red.

      Refresh your skin each time you change a value, make a note of what bit suddenly changes to bright red, go back and adjust accordingly.

      Least that's what I do when I can't find/remember what bit does what.

        I've changed every line to the value I need. Didn't make any difference...

          Then you need to be posting a picture of what bits you mean, because your descriptions might not be the same as what I, or anyone else, calls things.

          Post a pic, point out the bits you mean.

            Here we go...
            The grey bits should not be gray

              Dont you use these tags to do scrollbars : -

              PHP Code:
              <bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.horizontal.background" file="window/window-elements.png" x="58" y="52" h="13" w="41" gammagroup="buttons"/>      
              bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.horizontal.left" file="window/window-elements.png" x="40" y="13" h="13" w="13" gammagroup="buttons"/> 
              ....etc etc etc.

              Look in /plugins/freeform/xml/wasabi/xml/system-elements.xml for the full list.
