skinning 8 Years ago  
Im trying to convert to v2 a skin based on Chromatic. I use a .PNG day font (1024x35) from 1 to 31. Days are shown incorrectly on the skin, so I suppose it is related to a bad configuration of elements.xml.
There are two variables (in elements.xml), alphabet and separation, that I think may be the reason. How can I configure these variables? Anything else to change?

Thanks.

Do not use <bitmapfont> if the image has double digits. You need to use the <bitmap> instead and define the number of frames with "frames" attribute. E.g.

<bitmap id="bitmap.month.numbers" file="images/numbers.png" frames="32" />

Re:skinning 7 Years, 8 Months ago  
I'm trying to use the bitmap from the old tranquil skin and am having problems.

The documentation (included in 2.1 b38) for <days> says "Contains an appearance which draws the normal days to the calendar. It's possible to use a normal font as the appearance's element or a bitmap font which defines alphabet from 0 to 9 or a bitmap with 32 frames (the first frame is ignored)."

I have added <bitmap id="bitmap.numbers.tranquil.red" file="images/numbers-red.png" frames="32" /> to elements.xml. In my calendar I have configured <weekends> <appearance priority="-1" element="bitmap.numbers.tranquil.red" align="CENTER" /> </weekends>. The weekdays are still set to bitmap.numbers.white (as per the default Shadows skin).

This is the result:


Notice that the weekend numbering is off by one day, while the weekdays are correct. Is it possible that the first of the 32 frames is not ignored?<br><br>Post edited by: daven, at: 2007/04/15 21:44

Yes, the first frame is not ignored in the xml skins. I'll update the docs.
