O.P. [HELP] How to move the contact search bar from top to bottom?!
Well...I've already tried looking at more people's skins, and have done excatly what they've done in their 1001 defs.
well...after lots of trial and error...I still keep getting the same result: nothing happens.
can anyone here explain how to move the contact search bar to the bottom??

Is this for your own skin or the bug in mine?

If for your own, in msgres_4004_1001.txt:

find on line 3
[code]<Element LayoutPos=Top Layout=BorderLayout() BorderThickness=rect(0,0,0,1) Padding=Rect(0,0,2,0) ID=Atom(ai550)>
replace with
[code]<Element <*PlusSkin Conditions(NAME = false)*>LayoutPos=Top</*PlusSkin*> <*PlusSkin Conditions(NAME = true)*>LayoutPos=Bottom</*PlusSkin*> Layout=BorderLayout() BorderThickness=rect(0,0,0,1) Padding=Rect(0,0,2,0) ID=Atom(ai550)>
Change NAME to resemble your BoolVal Name

If that isn't working check spellings and/or clear the options value in your registry. Other than that I don't know. :^)

If for my bug I posted the fix in the release topic.

take a look at 1001 style, it works fine here :)
code:
Element[ID=Atom(ai550)]
{
    LayoutPos:Bottom;
    BorderColor:rcclr(20023); /* Colorized. I=234 */
}

huh?

[Image: 2409233382_aaf9da5ab5.jpg]

1001 definition:
code:
    <Element Layout=BorderLayout() BorderThickness=rect(0,0,0,1) Padding=Rect(0,0,2,0) ID=Atom(ai550)>

        <Element LayoutPos=Client Layout=BorderLayout()>
            <WordWheelElement id=atom(WordWheelElement)/>
        </Element>

<Toolbar id=Atom(SimpleToolbar)
....
</Toolbar>

</Element>

1001 style:
code:
Element[ID=Atom(ai550)]
{
    LayoutPos:Bottom;
    BorderColor:rcclr(20023); /* Colorized. I=234 */
}

As you can see in the picture, you can change the position (or hide) by specifying the LayoutPos attribute :D

It may sound dumb, but this is the only explanation. have you included the files in the SkinInfo?
