Note that Dark skin is now bundled with MusicBee.  For the very latest version see the posts at the end of this thread.


-----------------------------------ignore below------------------


Here is a new version of the Dark skin. It skins drop down menus, star ratings in the edit panel and fixes the odd highlighting in the edit panel tabs.

Very nice job.
Is there any chance you can make the right-facing triangles on the drop-down menu pages the same color as the text?  Right now they're dark black on a not quite so dark black.  Pretty much the same thing with the check marks on already selected options.
Thanks for taking on this project V4lve.

i think you use the non-skinned border option - the menu it the header section is only supported for skinned borders

It's a switch in the skin file.

When I switch back to the original Dark skin after trying out this one, the background of the menu still turns to orange when the mouse hovers on.

That's because it's a common feature of both skins.  I suspect you may have not noticed it or have been using an earlier version of "Dark" that didn't have it.  Does it persist if you use a completely different skin?

I had been using the Dark skin you published before this Darker one. Probably I had not noticed such a feature.
