Default New UI - a few questions

Im making my own User Interface, I have been playing about and learning reading XML from other authors to understand how it works and such, I have a few questions though

1: How can I make windows elements transparent? (As black isnt transparent in game)
2: Is it possible to make different colors for text based on a number range?

example:
FPS:
  • 15 or less.
  • 16-29
  • 30 or more.
3: Is it possible to make the hotbar icons square rather than the rounded look that they currently have?

oh man it's been a while,

1) there is a flag you can include to make the window transparent, and another to set the value of transparency.

2) there's some kind of statement structure similar to if/else where you can see if the value is less than 10, less than 30, else (i forget what it is... sorry im at work and haven't looked at this in some time)

3) nope, those come straight from the server side... though, you can implement something i had been planning and never got around to! You can make a hotbar mask that is square inside and out, and you will have to layer this ontop of the real hotbar that contains your rounded buttons

Hey Spiked thanks for your reply!

Re 3: excelent! maybe you could show me that sometime

Let hope someone else notices and tells me what the transparent bit is hehe

I just came up with another question: Are you limited to the amount of Hotbars you can have or is it just a matter of creating another window, say I wanted a total of 10

You're not limited on hotbars... only on hotkeys

global font... you can change aspects of it, but not the face.

Meaning... you can give it a shadow, you can change the color, and the size, and the boldness. There are text effects out there to experiment with, but the only 1 I ever messed with was the shadow.


I hope someone else can help with the specifics of your questions... I've been psuedo retired of this for a while ;P
