Skinning Tutorial

[ Back to Shareaza Skinning ]


The <watermarks> element adds watermark images to different parts of the user interface. Watermark images are in .bmp format and are tiled over an area to fill it.

Here is an example from MyWatermarkSkin.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<skin xmlns="" version="1.0">
<manifest name="My Watermark Skin" author="Me" type="Skin"/>
      <watermark target="CCoolMenuBar" path="FunkyWatermark.bmp"/>
      <watermark target="CCoolMenu" path="MenuWatermark.bmp"/>

The following is a list of the targets that can have watermarks. The list is grouped by the area of the program where each watermark is found. Each example uses a distinct magenta colour to make it clear what the watermark covers. Each one also links to a larger screenshot.
