Need help PlEdit scrollbar

So I have like this great idea for a skin, but in order to create it I need to add a certain background to the Playlist Editor window, and I need to change the image of the scrollbar as well. I've seen many skins with non-standard scrollbar-sliders, but no matter how I scan their codes I cannot find where it's defined. Help?
And I also want to know if it's possible to add a certain picture as background in the PlEdit window (haven't seen that in any other skin).

Thanks //Youkai

New scrollbars:
- Ok first you need to make sure your skin version is the latest (1.32... see skin.xml in bento for example)
- Then you'll need to define these bitmaps: (see winamp/skins/Big Bento/system-elements.xml for example)
code:
<!-- Scrollbars (on List, Tree, etc...) -->
<bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.vertical.button" file="scrollbars.png" x="20" y="0" h="31" w="13" gammagroup="PlayerButton"/>
<bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.vertical.button.hover" file="scrollbars.png" x="20" y="0" h="31" w="13" gammagroup="PlayerButton"/>
<bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.vertical.button.pressed" file="scrollbars.png" x="40" y="0" h="31" w="13" gammagroup="PlayerButton"/>

<bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.vertical.left" file="scrollbars.png" x="60" y="0" h="14" w="13" gammagroup="PlayerButton"/>
<bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.vertical.left.hover" file="scrollbars.png" x="60" y="0" h="14" w="13" gammagroup="PlayerButton"/>
<bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.vertical.left.pressed" file="scrollbars.png" x="80" y="0" h="14" w="13" gammagroup="PlayerButton"/>

<bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.vertical.right" file="scrollbars.png" x="60" y="26" h="14" w="13" gammagroup="PlayerButton"/>
<bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.vertical.right.hover" file="scrollbars.png" x="60" y="26" h="14" w="13" gammagroup="PlayerButton"/>
<bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.vertical.right.pressed" file="scrollbars.png" x="80" y="26" h="14" w="13" gammagroup="PlayerButton"/>

<bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.vertical.background" file="scrollbars.png" x="0" y="0" w="13" h="17" gammagroup="ScrollBarTrack"/>
<bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.vertical.background.top" file="scrollbars.png" x="0" y="0" w="13" h="17" gammagroup="ScrollBarTrack"/>
<bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.vertical.background.middle" file="scrollbars.png" x="0" y="0" w="13" h="17" gammagroup="ScrollBarTrack"/>
<bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.vertical.background.bottom" file="scrollbars.png" x="0" y="0" w="13" h="17" gammagroup="ScrollBarTrack"/>

<bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.horizontal.button" file="scrollbars.png" x="12" y="70" h="13" w="31" gammagroup="PlayerButton"/>
<bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.horizontal.button.hover" file="scrollbars.png" x="12" y="70" h="13" w="31" gammagroup="PlayerButton"/>
<bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.horizontal.button.pressed" file="scrollbars.png" x="12" y="90" h="13" w="31" gammagroup="PlayerButton"/>

<bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.horizontal.left" file="scrollbars.png" x="0" y="110" h="13" w="14" gammagroup="PlayerButton"/>
<bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.horizontal.left.hover" file="scrollbars.png" x="0" y="110" h="13" w="14" gammagroup="PlayerButton"/>
<bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.horizontal.left.pressed" file="scrollbars.png" x="0" y="130" h="13" w="14" gammagroup="PlayerButton"/>

<bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.horizontal.right" file="scrollbars.png" x="26" y="110" h="13" w="14" gammagroup="PlayerButton"/>
<bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.horizontal.right.hover" file="scrollbars.png" x="26" y="110" h="13" w="14" gammagroup="PlayerButton"/>

<bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.horizontal.background.top" file="scrollbars.png" x="18" y="50" w="17" h="13" gammagroup="ScrollBarTrack"/>
<bitmap id="wasabi.scrollbar.horizontal.background.middle" file="scrollbars.png" x="18" y="50" w="17" h="13" gammagroup="ScrollBarTrack"/>

So, I only need to define those elements, not write anything elsewhere (as when you create a button. First define the button image, and then define the button in a group), even if I build my skin from scratch (not using Big Bento or Winamp Modern as base)?
Since I cannot use an image for background, is it possible to make the PlEdit background white and then add black lines between every track (like a piece of paper)?

Jip, just need to include those bitmapelements somewhere... Winamp is just waiting for them

The playlist is limited to the playlist you see in classic skins... so you can just set the bg color, no lines

If you're know your way around the new (5.5+) pldir.mi you can create your own playlist and do with it what you want but if this is your first skin its not recommended

It is not my first skin, and I'm a quick learner. You have a link to where I can find more information on the pldir.mi?

Here is a little something I did a while back.

It's a custom playlist with artist + title + cover

Stopped working on it because I need a few more functions to complete it (mousewheel for example)

Here is the PLDIR.mi

You check the source code of my previous post to see some functions in action. Pretty easy to get the hang of though

Hi

You can browse the plugin section for wallpaper in playlist. I've had this plugin but can't find it anymore.
