Custom Themes

Postby Brother Gabriel-Marie » Sun Apr 17, 2016 10:53 pm

In my Classic installation, I have a custom mod of the Gnome theme.

Is there a collection of themes for MP? There isn't much to choose from in the View > Theme menu.

no, but you can create your own icon theme.
In XnViewMP folder, create a icons subfolder, and add icons like UI/icons-48 subfolder

Thanks for the info! After I make a theme, is there a way I can contribute it for others to use, too?

You can share it in “Contribution” » “Customization” » “Toolbar skins:-D

@Pierre: I added all available commands in Tools » Settings... » Interface » ToolBar to Browse mode + View mode and saved the cofiguration as test.bar. Then I opened test.bar in a text editor to retrieve the commands. What's the difference between cmd_convert and cmd_convertM? Does the M stand for modeless?

M is for menu, cmd_convertM is the 'convert into' menu

Thanks for clarifying, Pierre!

  • cmd_convert = Batch convert...
  • cmd_convertM = Convert into [menu] (browser context menu)
  • cmd_rating3 = Average
  • cmd_rating3m = Average (move to next photo)

If I am not mistaken, that thread is for skins for the old XnView. Shouldn't we start a new one for MP?

So...
To create a custom theme, I would basically copy the c:\program files\XnviewMP\UI folder and customize those icons and qss files?
If I wanted to switch between one theme and another, where would I put it? The files in UI are just in "UI" they are not in any subfolder to indicate a theme name, so how would I add another choose-able theme without replacing the default?

I think I'm missing something.

How do I get my custom theme to show up in the Themes menu so I can switch between mine and the others?

I've done some css changes like from here.

That means I have both single icons in a folder AND my .qss files to compose a theme.

How do I register it in MP to show up in the menu?

Ah, okay, I was suspecting that...

So, if we want to share a theme with others, it's not so easy.

Any ideas how it might be implemented in the future?
Perhaps it will be a zip package with a file-manifest, kind of like a mozilla addon?

Okay, so I found some 48 px icons that I like, in particular an icon for Refresh, which I put into c:\program files\xnviewmp\UI\icons-48 and named it cmd_refreshThumb.png
I restart MP but the icon doesn't display.

Do I have to add it in a qss file somewhere?

Does your default icon even show up, Mine doesn't. I just get the word "Refresh" on the toolbar.

I think that thier is a typo here, The cmd name is ( cmd_refershThumb ) While the icon is named ( cmd_refresh ).

Well, in customize toolbar mode (Browse mode) it says cmd_refreshThumb in the list.
But no, the icon never displays.

actually, I have an icon pngs named cmd_Refresh.png AND cmd_refreshThumb.png
