Skinning HowTo/XUI Other Widgets

From Second Life Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

These are the XML elements and parameters used to define the floaters, panels, and so forth, that make up the viewer user interface. They are used by the XUI files in the \skins\default\xui folders. See Skinning HowTo/Basics for an explanation of how these are used.

Contents

Common parameters

The most common parameters are described here and are just listed under the elements that use them.

name

Required. The XML name of this element. The name must be unique to the floater you are editing.

  • IMPORTANT: As noted above, do not re-name XML elements, even for localization. Many of the element names are looked up by the viewer. If the viewer cannot find an element name it expects, it will crash.

String: name="input_first_name"

width

Required. The width of the element, in pixels.

For text, this defines the visible text as well as the clickable area. If the width of a text element is not sufficient to hold the text, the text will be truncated. This is most likely what you will widen when localizing the viewer.

For most other elements, this describes the dimensions of an element, such as a button, icon, panel, text_area, etc.

  • Tip: See the bounding boxes of all XML elements in the viewer: Advanced menu > UI > Debug Views.

Integer: width="140"

height

Required. The height of the element, in pixels.

For text, this defines the visible text as well as the clickable area. If the height of a text element is not sufficient to hold the text, the text will be truncated. This is most likely what you will lengthen when localizing the viewer.

For most other elements, this describes the dimensions of an element, such as a button, icon, panel, text_area, etc.

Integer: height="24"

left

Optional. Sets the position in the x dimension of the element's left edge relative to the container's left edge. Positive and negative values are accepted. A negative value will set the position relative to the right edge of the container.

Integer: left="6"

right

Optional. Sets the position in the x dimension of the element's right edge relative to the container's left edge. Positive and negative values are accepted. A negative value will set the position relative to the right edge of the container. Best used to align something to the right.

  • For example, given a floater with a width of 500 and a button we wish to right align in the floater, we can set the right to 490 -- this puts the right edge of the button 10 pixels away from the right border of the floater.

Integer: right="6"

left_delta

Optional. (use instead of left) Sets the position in the x dimension of the element's left edge relative to the previous element, or, for the first widget, the left edge of the container. Positive and negative values are accepted. Best used to left-align the current element with the previous element.

  • For example, given Button B with a width of 100, a previous Button A with a width of 50 and a distance between elements of 6, we would set the left_delta to -106, putting the left edge of Button B 106 pixels to the left of Button A. We use a negative number to move left, and a positive number to move right.

Integer: left_delta="-106"

right_delta

Optional. (use instead of right) Sets the position in the x dimension of the element's right edge relative to the previous element, or, for the first widget, the left edge of the container. Positive and negative values are accepted. Best used to right-align the current element with the previous element.

  • For example, given Button B with a width of 100, a previous Button A with a width of 50 and a distance between elements of 6, we would set the right_delta to 106, putting the left edge of Button B 106 pixels to the left of Button A.

Integer: left_delta="106"

bottom

Optional. Sets the position in the y dimension of the element's bottom edge relative to the container. Positive and negative values are accepted. For example, given a floater with a height of 300 and a title 20 pixels tall and we want , we can set the bottom to (NEED TO DO MATH, LOL) -- putting the bottom edge of the title 40 pixels away from the top border of the floater.

Integer: bottom="(NEED TO DO MATH, LOL)"

bottom_delta
follows

Optional. Sets which edge(s) an element follows when the containing element is resized. Specifying all edges results in an element that can dynamically resize itself with its container.

Values: left, top, right, bottom. String multiple values together using pipes.

The following example sets an element to follow both the left and the top, such as a floater's title may be designed: String: follows="left|top"

font

Optional. Sets which size and style of the application font to use. The default is SansSerifSmall for text elements and SansSerif for controls (such as check_box and button.

Values: SansSerifSmall, SansSerif, SansSerifBig, SansSerifBold, Monospace

String: font="SansSerifSmall"

XUI Text Parameters

XUI Containers Parameters

XUI Menus Parameters

XUI Widgets Parameters

button parameters


Used by floater, panel, layout_stack, layout_panel, and form.

scale_image

Optional. Specifies whether to scale the button art as its container/floater is resized. As of 1.18.x, all button art has this property set to true where the button size is not equal to 32x128.

Boolean: scale_image="true"

label

Optional. Label is the text on the button's face. Without a specified label (and no image_overlay declared), your button will be labeled "Button". String: label="Click Me!"

label_selected

Optional. Label is the text on the button's face when pressed into an 'on' state. Your button will inherit the label if you omit this property. String: label_selected="I've been clicked."

font

(under construction)

font_style

Optional. Styles the text. Allows multiple style selections. As of 1.18.x, the style options are:

  • normal: Apply the default styles of the selected font. (For example, SansSerifBold has a default bold style applied to it.)
  • bold: Bolds the text.
  • italic: Italicizes the text.
  • underline: Underlines the text.
  • drop_shadow: Old-style 1px offset of black under the text.
  • drop_shadow_soft: New-style 3px offset of blurred shadow under the text.

String: font_style="bold|underline|drop_shadow_soft"

halign

Optional. Controls horizontal alignment of label on button face. Options are "left", "center" and "right".

image_unselected

Optional. Overrides the default button art for the unselected/up and enabled button state. Art must be located in the ..\skins\textures directory within the Second Life application folder (on a Mac, this is inside the package at Contents/MacOS/Resources/skins/textures). Art must also be named in textures.xml with an assigned UUID. By default, the button art is stretched to fit the specified button size.

String: image_unselected="btn_square_32x128.tga"

image_selected

Optional. Overrides the default button art for the selected/down button state. Art must be located in the ..\skins\[SKIN]\textures directory within the Second Life application folder (on a Mac, this is inside the package at Contents/MacOS/Resources/skins/textures). By default, the button art is stretched to fit the specified button size.

String: image_selected="btn_square-down_32x128.tga"

image_hover_selected

Optional. Overrides the default button art for the selected/down and mouseover/hover button state. Art must be located in the ..\skins\textures directory within the Second Life application folder (on a Mac, this is inside the package at Contents/MacOS/Resources/skins/[SKIN]/textures). Art must also be named in textures.xml with an assigned UUID. By default, the button art is stretched to fit the specified button size.

String: image_unselected="btn_square-down-hover_32x128.tga"

image_hover_unselected

Optional. Overrides the default button art for the unselected/up and mouseover/hover button state. Art must be located in the ..\skins\[SKIN]\textures directory within the Second Life application folder (on a Mac, this is inside the package at Contents/MacOS/Resources/skins/[SKIN]/textures). Art must also be named in textures.xml with an assigned UUID. By default, the button art is stretched to fit the specified button size.

String: image_unselected="btn_square-up-hover_32x128.tga"

image_disabled

Optional. Overrides the default button art for the disabled button state. Art must be located in the ..\skins\textures directory within the Second Life application folder (on a Mac, this is inside the package at Contents/MacOS/Resources/skins/[SKIN]/textures). Art must also be named in textures.xml with an assigned UUID. By default, the button art is stretched to fit the specified button size.

String: image_unselected="btn_square-disabled_32x128.tga"

image_disabled_selected

Optional. Overrides the default button art for the disabled and selected/down button state.

String: image_unselected="btn_square-down-disabled_32x128.tga"

image_overlay

Optional. Applies an overlay image to the button. The button art will be sized to fit. As of 1.18.x, these icons should be 16 pixels high at maximum on a standard height 24px button to minimize scaling artifacts. Can be used with or without text. Art must be located in the ..\skins\[SKIN]\textures directory within the Second Life application folder (on a Mac, this is inside the package at Contents/MacOS/Resources/skins/[SKIN]/textures). Art must also be named in textures.xml with an assigned UUID. See image_overlay_alignment for alignment options.

String: image_overlay="icn_media-play_16.tga"

image_overlay_alignment

Optional. Sets the alignment of the image_overlay icon.

Values:

  • left: left-aligns the art on the button. This standard is used for new button art with text in the Dazzle branch.
