NetBeans/etc.: Well I don't use it but I did go through that guide on the forum and it helped solve the mystery of the window.setSkinUI() call not working in the java files. It would be so slow to use it though; I'm a command line user and it's a lot easier and more efficient to edit code and also build and jar up files etc.
I'm very much a GUI user, I only use the command line if I have to. There are a few command line experts, though they don't code for skins.
I know that some compile their java too for example jGrommit (spelling?) and even in that case he (or she? I believe he) has source code included. Yet nothing really jumped out as obvious because like I said the things that aren't working haven't even changed. I happen to be the one who helped with getting RPMs made for jAlbum and I might still have the original build in which case I could try using that and see if the skin works there. I know I have at least one build of that I just haven't tried it yet (I did buy a licence for the current release last week).
jGromit, is a he. I used his guide to compile my skins GUIs.
I will see about working the source code a bit so that I can then get a stack trace. The trouble is it doesn't seem to make sense as I already said. I mean why would the variable I mentioned - included in Slide and SkinModel classes as well as the actual place it's used - suddenly not be found in BeanShell scripts? That doesn't make sense to me and why would showing that the variable isn't found here and is found there be useful? Well of course it can be but you I imagine know what I mean.
I take it your skinModel is compiled; there has been a reported problem with non-compiled files and Windows 10.
I read something yesterday that made me wonder if it's possible to change init.bsh to be compiled Java but I haven't tried that yet. Is that an option / do you know if anyone else has tried that? If that were to work if I could do the same thing in the template file (can I?) that would be fine on my behalf.
Never tried it. We only compile the skin GUIi as that saves time when the skin is loading.
Any thoughts there? And thank you for the reply (I will check the links in a min). I hope to get back to replies shortly after but I've been very busy taking care of my mum and I'm just knackered a lot of the time from it.
Hopefully someone else might have an idea.
