Overview

This page describes the XML attributes for the buttons, sliders, and spinners. These are some of the XML elements and attributes used within 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.

Many XUI elements share the same attributes. Rather than repeatedly describing them, we just list their names here and describe them at Skinning HowTo/Common XUI attributes.

button

  • Class LLButton : LLUICtrl : LLView
  • In source file llui/llbutton.cpp
  • Used by floater, panel, layout_stack, layout_panel, and form.

        scale_image="true" tab_stop="true" width="200" />
</floater></xml>

Common attributes

  • General: name, mouse_opaque, tool_tip, control_name, enabled, visible, use_bounding_rect, default_tab_group
  • Positioning: width, height, left, right, left_delta, bottom, top, bottom_delta, follows, rect_control
  • Text: label, font, font_size, font_style, halign
  • Others: sound_flags, tab_group

Special attributes

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_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."

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. 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). 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-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.

If image is smaller than the button/object it is being overlaid onto, using the attribute picture_style="true" will help stop the image from stretching or from text being shown over it.

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.
  • right: right-aligns the the art on the button.
  • center: centers the art on the button. This standard is used for new button art without text in the Dazzle branch.

String: image_overlay_alignment="left"

Boolean: toggle="false"
