O.P. [HOW TO REQUEST] theme preview in skin ops
something id like to do in the 365 skin is when a users has selected a theme in the dropdown list a preview image of what that selected theme looks like appears in a box somewhere in the skinops panel, how would this be accomplished?

oh thats a shame cause it wolud of been cool if you could. its interesting though cause in the test skin outlined in the skinning documentation you had an option for turning background replacement on and off and you had an image there beside it so its not that you cant put the image there its just a matter of can you make the image change to a different file based on what theme is selected?

You cannot change the ImageElement depending on what theme is selected. But you can insert one image per theme, and then create a checkbox in front of each image (maybe with <CustomLook>?), allowing the user to click the winter icon to apply each theme.

It's using Messenger Plus! XML-windows, same as used with scripts. Just read the documentation part about custom skin-options, it pretty much covers up everything.
