THIS IS ANOTHER MAJOR RELEASE
introducing the new ZSK file format that stores custom SKIN parameters

Example: BUSI.ZKS ("Business class" SKIN)

@PATH@ is a macro that means, use current EXE's folder name as root path to the SKIN subfolder.

Using ZSK file and its corresponding SKIN subfolder, allows you to create custom SKIN without editing the source code of the EXE. And with little extra work it is even possible to change the whole SKIN on the fly!

The "Business class" SKIN is using an original design and a complete graphic color chart that must be used with any new controls to keep good looking.

Here is a screen shot of the result




The zInitSkin is the main function to decode the ZSK file, altogether with the zskin.inc file. It must be called just after the creation of the main window and before the creation of any child controls.

Code: [Select]
'// Load SKIN components and create SYS buttons

    LOCAL rc AS RECT
    LOCAL hBut, imgW, imgH, MinSizeX, StartX, StartY, x, y, Done AS LONG

The first post of this thread has been updated, to fix the ZIP file corruption caused by the "Server Collapse".
