Yes I have the source files; I use "Player Centered Lime" skin as my base


Regarding the 'playlist' image, you can override that using UnknownAlbumIcon.

For 'star ratings', you want to change the image of those what, if you don't mind my asking?

Thank you, UnknownAlbumIcon works fine.

The ability to change the star graphics is the least urgent/important for me, but would be nice regardless. I was thinking of having outlined stars for the Lowlight state

Visual bug: MB doesn't respect the PlayerInfoCentered=false setting when ProgressBar is set to Do Not Display

I found the following unskinnable graphical elements (plus one visual error), for which I'd like to have the ability to use custom images for each:

Skins / How to allow for 'Progress Bar on Top / Bottom' on bitmap skins?
« on: August 25, 2022, 08:13:48 AM »
I'm basing my bitmap skin on another bitmap skin which already had the progressbar in the middle. But (most) non-bitmap skins have the option to set the progress bar to either Top/Middle/Bottom where the Top/Bottom ones span the entire window width.

Now I can't seem to figure out which code I need to apply to my skin to allow for the Top/Bottom variants fo the progressbar. Tips please?

Side question: how to set the TrackPosition to not be split on either side of the progressbar, but rather combined on one end of it?

Icons / Mobee – fresh app icon set

Mobee brings you three new app icons – pick your favorite!

The .ico file contains various sizes from 16x16 up to 256x256 to make sure it looks crisp wherever it is displayed on your system.

Skins / Re: Bitmap skin support for 125% Windows scale?
« on: August 20, 2022, 06:45:03 PM »
I found that using this latest SkinCreator, MB will no longer downscale higher dpi (150% 200%) icons to 125% users; whilst the older SkinCreator did exactly that just fine.
So while the latest SkinCreator does indeed support 125% images, when a skin creator does not provide those, but does provide 150% 200% images, MB will show and upscale the 100% image to 125% users - getting us back where we started: with blurry icons  :-\

I think MB should check if 125% is provided, then use those. If 125% is not provided, use 150% (or 200%) and downscale that.


And, more importantly, I found some icons in MusicBee that I wish to change but I can not find the element code of.
In the sample skin under <images id="Default">, is a list of all current available icon elements. Which ones could you not find?

I found at least these graphics that appear to have no known code available to customize them:

Oops! haha, works fine for me now. Thanks

I just unzipped and copied the SkinCreator.exe file from the above link into my skin folder (along with the two dll files, but those don't seem to cause the issue as I also tried their older versions I had previously unzipped).

However, using my older SkinCreator.exe -- thus not using the above supplied SkinCreator update -- the icons in MusicBee are just how they were/are supposed to be. And because the latest MB patch downscales the 150% icons for 125% users just fine, I think you/we should not bother with creating separate _125 icon variants

Wow that is some quick support! Thank you very much, the icons indeed looks sharp at 125% now. And I didn't even provide dedicated 125% variants yet. So I assume you downscale the 150 or 200 variants as of now. Nice!

However, some bugs were introduced. The preview inside the SkinCreator appears fine, but once saved and opened in MusicBee itself, these bugs appear. From what I can see, it affects the main player controls panel, where most of the custom icons no longer respect their on/off states; plus sizing issues where some button states don't respect the 125% setting but scale down to a 100% version. PlayPause button is showing Pause state only. Volume slider is kinda broken. Love button (in not-loved state) is replaced by Banned button.

I indeed found that Sample Skin useful for a few occasions, however I was looking for a simpler way than the process of changing to that skin, screenshot it > color pick it > search for the rgb value in xml > change rgb value > switch back to own skin.

And, more importantly, I found some icons in MusicBee that I wish to change but I can not find the element code of.

I searched the skinning wiki, and I see some code snippets for previously added elements scattered around this forum; I assume there is no single complete list of all current styleable xml elements around?

Skins / Find a skin element's code akin to browser's element inspector?
« on: August 19, 2022, 10:23:20 AM »
I'm using someone's skin files to fully customize it to my liking, however I noticed the skin file does not contain every available skin element's code. Is there a way for me to find out the specific xml code for a certain element when I browse around MusicBee and see some element that I need to style, much like a webbrowser's element picker tool?

Skins / Bitmap skin support for 125% Windows scale?
« on: August 19, 2022, 10:16:27 AM »
I'm in the process of creating a custom bitmap skin but one thing that nags me are the blurry custom icons. Yes, I do provide 3 dpi variants for each image (100% 150% 200%)

My Windows is set to the recommended 125% scale on a non-retina monitor, but MusicBee accepts only either 100% or 150% scale images, while upscaling -- and thus making unsharp -- the provided 100% image if Windows is set to 125%.

Could there be an option/update to MusicBee that either allows skin creators to provide a 125% version of each custom icon, or an update that makes MusicBee downscale any provided 150% icon to the 125% Windows scale.
