here are examples of the title strips these were common in 45 jukeboxes. it would be neat to set are own strips color and christmas themes based on the folowing pictures.

While this could be fun, and it could add some extra jukebox 'experience', it has less of a purpose in a digital music player than in a physical jukebox.

For a physical one you would want to be able to differentiate quickly by sight if a song is e.g. a christmas song.
But in a digital player you would probably just use a filter or a playlist that makes it possible to see your christmas songs with just one mouseclick.

I am not sure if you are saying you are going to convert that broken jukebox to a touchscreen jukebox, or that you abandoned the idea?
If you are going to do it, it would be interesting if you could post some photos of the end result?

I have installed 3.4.7499 and can't find this feature under the View menu. Is it there?

When you open a playlist, in the upper left corner is the header menu, a small "down" arrows appears to the right of it when moused over--click that and you get the choice to select your playlist view:

Could an override for the header line be added please.
<element id="Content[Jukebox].HeaderLine" bg="163,116,81" bg2="241,222,141" />

Most times the autocolour pick works well, but there's an odd time or two when it could use a little manual adjusting:

You know there is <element id="Content[Artwork].SplitterLine" bg="50,50,50" bg2="200,50,50" /> ?
Or do you want a dedicated one for Jukebox view?

Thanks hiccup
You can tell from my earlier post...

that I didn't realise that was the element it was coming from.
But yes, an override dedicated to the Jukebox view would be good.

Then you would probably also want a dedicated element for the background colour of the panel?
Else I don't think it would be very useful to have?

No. Just the line override.
It would be useful for me to tweak a couple of skins in jukebox view.
