Genzo I am having a few problems as described in the pictures:

First - As seen in the picture, on some of the items, the box doesnt cover up everything and including the text until it is actually selected (Clicked on).

Second - The highlighting color is nearly the same as the text, is there anyway I can change the color of the highlight? (I searched one of the JS files and found how to change the TEXT color, but not the highlight.

I believe the tag you are searching is : .inst_tagdisp . Just change the background-color: to transparent or the code you see fit. I cant try it atm...if it doesnt work let me know.

ahh S0mE0nesMiNd1 the problem that you having with the box is to do with the size icons that you are using. The box is just a picture that sits in the background but does not stretch because it would then distort the box and it will go pixely.

I did not think of this till now. The only way to fix this would be to make the box bigger or split the box up in parts so that it would stretch to whats in its contents.

The reason that the box goes to the right size when you click it is that its not using a image it then uses normal table but with colours and borders.

To change the colour of the interface you will need to find the right code in the css(cascading style sheet) "not sure if I spelt that right but anyway you will find this in each of the theme folders.

It had taken me ages to find the ones that i have altered already.

Sorry but iIcant get into to much detail in helping you at the moment I hope someone else can. I only have 1 week left till I finish college and need all my course work done which is not the case I have assignments not finished. If your questions are not answered when I have some spare time then I will be glad to help.

Hope I have been some help

Perhaps doing a whole new layout from scratch would've been easier?
I thought I made stuff pretty clear, but that's to me, so it may not be clear to anyone else... which might be right, seeing as I'm so cryptic :P

If you do feel like redoing the whole layout from scratch, and want to get it included with XPlode, msg me on MSN/ICQ - if you're going to help me with a layout, I'll be more likely to add more capabilities if you think they're needed in order to get the display working. New window.external.XXXXX() functions and whatnot.

I'm only going to be able to offer this opportunity today and tomorrow - I have a few days before I need to get ready for my exams, so you're going to have to make up your mind in the near future :P

Making a new layout would be hard for me, I started using javascript/xml only alittle while ago.

I might give it a try once my course is finished, I should have plenty of time when looking for a job :)

Wraith thanks for a great tool.

How about a window.external.shell("#XPLODE#\xplode.exe /xml win2000.xml") function that would run the XPlode.exe with a new xml file. This would get rid of the scripting message in the theme/menu system I made :)
