SkinUI by Dmitry

Dmitry Grinberg has just released a beta of a skinning program he has been working on. It has the ability to skin parts of the interface such as buttons, the scrollbar, check boxes, the I icon, and future releases may be able to do more. Currently, it comes with a skin titled Cobalt, which gives some of the system a noticably Cobalt look. Try it out. It can be downloaded from Dmitry's homepage at

In the picture you may notice the skinned buttons, pulldown menu button, and scrollbar.

If I had been going Cobalt crazy, I could have loaded my Cobalt SB skin to go along with the AA fonts for a complete Cobalt look, but im too lazy.

I am surprised that the boxes with the different fonts thremselves are not skinned - I'll look into it. The only remaining thing is to make scrollbars graphical and to skin window title bars. Both will be done shortly. A manual on creation of passive skins will be available on request and it is extremely simple.

I think we will leave the active skins to you for now. The passive skins do seem like something that would be pretty easy. If we were to compile a skin that has the same bitmaps and names, would it work?

yes, bitmaps are easy - 8-bit uncompressed (for speed) and quite logically laid out. makign skins is easy

31000 - checkbox on
31001-checkbox off
31002 - popUpList trigger unselected
31004 - sliders' thumb
31005 - sliders' base
31005 - popUp list trigger selected
31006 - infoButton unselected
31007 - infoButton selected

31050 - info AlertIcon
31051 - question AlertIcon
31052 - warning AlertIcon
31053 - error AlertIcon

then are same orders for uselected,selected buttons and then unselected and selected popup triggers

base numbers for buttons unselected is 31010, for buttons selected is 31020, unselected popup triggers is 31030 and selected popuptriggers is 31040

order of bitmaps:

sizes are (lo-res sizes)
BASE+ size what
0 5x5 topLeft
1 160x5 top
2 5x5 topRight
3 5x160 right
4 5x5 bottomRight
5 160x5 bottom
6 5x5 bottomLeft
7 5x160 left
8 160x60 center

the bitmaps are so big because titling takes time and this way there is no need for it.

So total bitmaps in current skins is 48 (no versioning of skins yet). currently there is no way to select a skin so only one is used. you have to replace it with your own to use it. This will be fixed soon. Currently name does not matter. just set creator to "skUI" and type to "skin".

All bitmaps must be in arm-format (use "-LE32" flag for PilRC)

Happy skinning

How did you get your 'status bar' skinned as well? I'm using a T3 and wondered if it was possible to get that same WinXP style status bar you have on the screen captures.

I installed SkinUI but it doesn't seem to have an impact on the status bar.
