Upstand

Ok this is countinued from that thread about a useful idea or somthin like that.. Anyway here is the skin and this is all I got.

But I was thinking of a "big" mode for the skin sort of like in FLO just so that the skin could be usfull to every body.

Oooh. You should put all 3 versions into the skin It could be one of those multi-textured-single-coded skins. Those are always cool.

Maybe we could do what lugi said that would be cool, now useing skry's example I think this is what we should do for the ticker. (right click on winamp and open "ticker") but insted of right click I want to make it so that when you clikc the "ticker" button it opens this new window.

no need, in case ya havnt checked the idea thread, a workaround for the vertical songticker is there, also gonna post that in the maki thread so its available to everyone and not buried in a post

all u need to do is create a bitmap font with the letters rotated to which suits the orientation you want to implement if you dont want vertical text

as for the timer, it works on a same principle see UULs iCube skin

Hehehe ok so you (two?) are still working on all of them, that's clear now. I wasn't sure which project you might have abandoned and which one was still in progress. I'm looking forward to seeing the first one finished!

Ok,
these look sweet.

and as someone said, it kind of looks like the xp taskbar. that's where i kinda got the idea for this.

another idea on top of making a new 'upstand' skin, would be to make a mod for the default modern skin that adds the upstand windowshade mode....just a thought

lets use yours as the 'default' then see if it possible to ether make a "image uploader" for the background of the skin and if possible a "image uploader" for all the buttons Or see if we could make a "multi textured" skin

all u need to do is practically copy and paste the applicable code bits from vertitext, its a basic example and no harder to add than what uve already put in

the harder part will be creating a bitmap font with a top to bottom or vice versa read, with that i was planning at some point to create a PS action or script to create a bitmap font which all the user has to do is input the font size, font type and spacings and it would create it as they can be a time consuming job
the best way to ensure you could rotate the letters is to create each letter individually so it has its own set space within the image already then just rotate to orientation needed

to get you started with the songticker
substituted font with yer ttf, recommend creating bitmap fonts for diff orientation

also added 2 more chars in there so the songticker area is filled
http://www.slob.org.uk/wa5/1_upstand_withvertitext.wal

timer works on a similar concept, checkout UULs iCube for a timer workaround, just bosh the x value as x="0" y="??" for timer characters to line them up

its real easy, one day we might hope for rotation/orientation on the text object for songtickers

it would be cool if this skin behaved like corneramp, only for sides (skin for docking top/bottom and a skin for docking left/right) I dont know how hard that would be to work out though.


its a very nice skin btw, i can see myself using this.

the latest version looks good layout wise (and it doesnt have the dreadful bevels the first few did), but its too dark. I cant read anything on it.

Well, that's the beauty of colour themes!

That would be cool. But i think getting the main layout(s) done is first priority

Ok I think we should make a "options" window for the reason of brightness, I know there are coloure themes but if on someones monitor they are all to dark? There sohuld be a options window so that the user can control to brightness of the skin on any colour theme.

Quick question

Is it possible for the 'vis' to go horizontal as well? so that it is like:

|||||

||||||

?
