I have some suggestions about the way the new standard skin handles the four player controls on the right side (equalizer, last.fm, repeat, shuffle) as, in my view, they have some issues.
- Equalizer button shows the same color for both on and off. But the differences in their shape are not easy to tell unlike other controls.
- No mouse-over highlight color unlike the left-side controls. I know it shows tooltip instead, but they show up a little late and immediate color change would be more noticeable and assuring.
- They are not consistent across different player modes. For some reason, the default skin shows the same color for the sidebar player as the main player, if you use color overrides for them, they behave the same as compact/mini mode where those controls display disabled color when the main player show default color.
Try this code to see what I mean.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<element id="PlayerSidebar.Control.Default" fg="0,0,255" />
<element id="PlayerSidebar.Control.Disabled" fg="255,0,0" />
<element id="PlayerSidebar.Control.Highlight" fg="0,255,0" />
Here's a summary of my suggestions:
