Forum: Wishes and new features

Features you would like to see in VirtualDJ
Topic: Skins - Wishes and new features - Page: 9
Could we get a better indicator for skin vs current version support? Maybe even a traffic light?
The issue being that older v8 skins right now don't support pad pages, and pretty much none have the new colorfx options
And it gets confusing if you are using a skin with current build that for instance doesn't have pad pages - plus you won't even know all the added functionality is there
So maybe a green light for 100% feature support in skin, yellow light for latest new features/changes missing, and red light for "will work with v8, but only for original features"
And then when a new skin dependant feature goes into the public release, all green marked skins except the default skin becomes yellow marked, and some yellow marked skins may turn into red marked skins
Just an idea

You are right, this is annoying, may be adding <build> tag in the skin ityself as <version> is not enough would help

Now that skins exist for GUI and Video and Karaoke it would be fine to be able to control panels by script not only for GUI

some examples
skin_panel 'video' 'BottomEQ' off
switch_skin_variation 'karaoke' 'Karaoke OSD 1 (light-left):/singer list'
skin_panel 'skin' 'panel' ? actionA : actionB

this would help not to use some user defined global variables

Another usefull feature would be some kind of "Skin plugin", a small optional feature which would be include in the skin as an extra xml file append to the original one
This way no need to edit again the whole skin and create a clone only to add a button or to try a new idea

I did suggest a similar idea to Atomix a long time ago, when VDJ 8 came out, because it has the ability to add extra pop-up windows to a skin.

I thought it would be good if those extra windows could be offered here in the same way as the main skins, but to add themselves in to any other skin.

Gradient type in <square> skin element.

When adding a gradient to a <square> skin element, it's only possible to shade up/down or left/right, whereas the <circle> element can be shaded out/in - because it's a circle.

Can we please also have the ability shade squares out/in?

Specifying <type> as "circular" doesn't create the right effect because it still tries to be circular within a square or oblong shape. The shading needs to follow the shape of the <square>.

** Intelligent Browser Sizing **

Currently, the browser position and size has to be manually stated in the skin XML. This is fine for simple skins, but when skins have many variations of deck numbers and sizes, plus browser zoom on/off, plus any number of racks/blocks, then the quantity of <browser> statements quickly becomes unmanageable.

For instance in djdad's Blocks skin, I counted almost one hundred <browser> listings.

Wouldn't it be better to have the browser automatically expand to fill available space?

Many users ask about modifying skins to remove the rhythmwaves or make them smaller, but on skins like Blocks (or even Performance) it's impractical due the the number of <browser> statements.

@groovin, Yeah I agree, maybe going further to also get racks to be easier/more stream lined, I've only given it 5 minutes of thought. I don't think this is possible yet [it might be I've not gone deep into the new skin engine yet.]
Anywho, my guess as to how it would/could work is to allow the Y position & height to accept a value called "remaining"
perhaps lines [which are de-facto rack/browser borders] could have a property; remainingPoint="yes/no" [default = no]
Then afais it would be much more straight forward.

But that's just my 5 minute thought, how are you imagining it?

Compatible side list. We've talked about this in general topics.

I'd take that as encouraging.

The idea's a good one.

effect_gui, shouldn't the button over colour be different to the button on colour?

something of nothing but it would sort of match controllers layout, padpage favourites, should they have a shift layer?
I don't use favourites layout, just 5 seconds of thought

This one is ready and uploaded for some times now
allows to load existing skins as complex as ... main skins, video skins, remote skins (<page/> element supported)... controllers skins and more
uploaded some time ago review pending
new version ready (fixes some issues with existing special skins)

Another crazy idea: Maybe it would be interesting to have a bank with some pre-drawn elements (no pic needed) for use in custom skins

here are some examples:

- Magic Eyes (l/r or t/b or growing shrinking)
- Analog vumeters
- 3D Multi Vumeter
- VB looking Vumeters, knob, sliders, 2Dsliders (grid, cross circles, squares)
