Falagard question (modifying Vanilla skin)

Postby Nitro » Sun Dec 13, 2009 17:13

Hello,

simple question: How do I make the close button in a FrameWindow of the vanilla skin appear in the titlebar instead of somewhere below it?

I tried modifying the looknfeel, even copied and pasted the FrameWindow code from the TaharezLook and WindowsLook, but that only made the button appear on the right-hand side center of the frame. I have the feeling I am missing something very essential.

Below is the FrameWindow part of the vanilla look'n'feel. You would think it's as easy as setting TopEdge AbsoluteDim to something like -20, but then the button disappears (I suppose it's either clipped or ends up behind the titlebar).

Any ideas?

Hi,

I think I missed this in the update.

Adding:

Code: Select all

<Property name="NonClient" value="True" />

in the Child definition for "__auto_closebutton__", should fix it. I'll get this change into SVN later tonight :D

CE.

Ohhhh damnit. I tried that before, but it made my application crash. Now I realize why... The Moved/Sized events are fired now when I do addChildWindow(). They didn't do this when the NonClient flag wasn't there. I should've debugged further I guess :)

Thanks again, CrazyGeniusEddy :)

Damn. I been looking for this one for a while :)

My looknfeel is much cleaner now. My framewindow's titlebar was part of client area and so all my dialogs' content had to be offset by the titlebar (ugly). Now all is good. Forum search wins again
