Skinning Tutorial

<colourScheme>

The <colourScheme> element changes the user interface colour scheme. This colour scheme is used throughout the program for fonts as well as window colours. Each colour is given a name. You can set each of these named colours to a particular value specified in HTML format (eg "FFFFFF").

Here is an example from MyColourSkin.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<skin xmlns="http://www.shareaza.com/schemas/Skin.xsd" version="1.0">
  <manifest name="My Colour Skin" author="Me" type="Skin"/>
  <colourScheme>
<colour name="System.Base.Midtone" value="FF0000"/> <colour name="Panel.Caption.Back" value="00FF00"/> </colourScheme>
</skin>
