Font Color Question

Post by Blakeh » Wed Jan 02, 2008 5:23 pm

I really like everything about the 'Black Monkey' skin except for a readability issue in two views.

The track listings and album information are in white when I'm viewing them via 'View -> Show Details' as you can see by this screen shot (click for larger):

However, the album information is displayed in a black font when I view it through either 'View -> Show Album Art' or 'View -> Show Album Art with details' which you can see here:

Does anyone know how I can change the font in those two views to white?

Thanks,
Blake

why did you change to blakeh?

the fonts in the album view don't seem to change no matter where i try to change them.

the only thing to do is change the background images to a lighter color.

RC, We are different people. I got confused too when I saw 'Blakeh.'

Sorry I can't help about the font problem, just had to clear that up.

okay i did think you changed again blake. but to the other blakeH.

you are using the default "no skin" skin. so you are getting half the default skin with the no player skin, skin.

try changing to the skin morten made which is the default "with skin," skin
or find one from the download site at the wiki and change your options that way. 8)

I haven't tried this for myself but if you look in the Glided skin theme the elements are listed under VirtualTree as AlbumArtTrackText and AlbumArtText and I would bet these are the elements you need to change. You could just copy them out of the Glided skin then change the font color or you could create them for yourself under VirtualTree as Text Object (5 states).

EDIT: I just tried out these elements with my own skin and they are correct.

Do you mean the sort columns? I'm not sure what you mean.
