Hi Hopki,
are there our two main skins available including audio buttons.

If not I will add some audio buttons, but if those "extension" would be available, I could save some time...

Thanks a lot!

Now I added some audio buttons (switching the volume) into the silhoutte skin.

The layout and visibility are set automatically with the settings under "Edit Skin Configuration", same as Hopki designed in the original skin.

The skin is attached, feel free to use it for your own needs.

Hi Hopki,
just a small question:
I modified the skin now again, to implement a language switcher.

Now I was again thinking of all the skin actions, variables and logic behind the scene.

I tried to center the "controller_bg" in the middle and therefore I don´t need to push the position anymore by the logic-block.

A bit more simple, but now I wonder, why you did not do that kind of construction.

Maybe there is any technical reason, why it is preferable to use the positioning (of controller_bg) with the logicblock (depending on var: pos_controller)
and NOT to use a center anchoring?

Thanks for your input!

Hi,
The _v6 skins are configurable.
If you use the skin configuration button you will see you can add and remove buttons.
Doing so requites the controller to reposition itself to accommodate the extra or removed buttons.

Hi Hopki,
yes thats clear.
I try to ask more clear:
Please see the screenshot:

I modified you skin in a few points:
I added buttons for audio and language
All works fine, including the positioning of the buttons, if selectd or not (via the skin config function).

My only question is regarding the anchoring of the element "controller_bg"

In your origin skin it is anchored top-left and therefore it needs also a logic-block-table for the different positions.

I tried now to anchor this element top-center, so it does not need the logic-block for positions.
Of course it still needs the logic-block for different width´s /size.

But now I am afraid, there could be ANY disadvantage by doing so.

Can you imagine any problem - maybe in some browser, or some special environment - if doing so?

Thanks again!

Hello mate,
Unless you want to make a skin that has the options I would just make one using components.
Add the buttons to the skin one at a time and then just space then out.
Each should be anchored bottom middle.
This would be much easier rater than trying to figure out the logic blocks etc.
