Using the Rdio Style xlm file as my inspiration, I want to show a lyrics field in place of the album track list.  First, I was able to show the lyrics but I could still see the track list.  Then, I added  backgroundalbumcover line which covered up the tracks but also covered up the album cover and album information.

Do I need to redraw the cover and album information when I un-hide the lyrics?  Or, is there a way to re-draw the background to only cover the track listing?  I want the background to remain the same as I toggle back and forth between tracks and lyrics.

The order of statements is obviously important, but I don't know how to conditionally show a "default" element like the track listing or the triggered element like the lyrics.

Thanks!

One solution seems to be in the order element creation.  If I define the background first, then the track listing, then the autohidden lyrics (with a background) , all the other elements can be created in the order as already in the xml file.  Creating the track list first is like nails on a blackboard to the part of my mind that want to set up the album cover first, but it works.  I am still curious if there are other solutions.

One of the FLUENT Theater Modes and the Tabolous Theater Mode both have the ability to hide lyrics in place of other information.
