    I know that you can use macro commands in custom conditionals. I'm wondering if it's possible to inherit properties from another frame.

    Basically, I want to setup a condition to show/hide based on the current shown/hidden status of my Archy Dig Sites frame. The intention is to put survey, mount, Archaeology and an insta-cast spell all one bar in the middle of my screen, but have it disappear when I'm not surveying (when I hide Archy).

    Is this something Bartender can do? I know it's possible in the UI because KGPanels can hook into a frame and become a child of it, so it inherits the same visibility status. If BT4 could do this I would be overjoyed! I love it and it hasn't let me down yet...

    Feedback/suggestions welcome!

    @ ladyofdragons, You want the Skinner option Backdrop/Background I think. You need to provide a texture via SharedMedia or some similar AddOn and then tell Skinner to use it. There are some instructions about this with a pointer to them on the first post of this thread.


    Jncl, thanks for the prompt reply. I have poked around with those settings a bit and am familiar with SharedMedia/MyMedia. Is it possible to assign different textures to different frames using that method?

    Also, where would be the best place to dig out the default Blizz textures so I can use them as a template to design around? If someone could point me in the right direction that would be grand. ^_^

    One of the biggest reasons I'd like to attempt this is that though I love how Skinner helps me unify the overall look of my UI; I dislike that many of the separators and other organizational elements of the character, talent, glyph, social, etc windows are gone, making drop downs and icons just float in space. Something I'd like to rectify on the more commonly used windows.

    I used the search but couldn't find the answer to this (likely due to word choice, as I imagine this has been asked in some fashion before) but I was wondering if it's possible to use Skinner to apply custom textures to the Blizzard default frames, like the character and glyph frames?

    I assume this is not the same as skinning another addon. In Skinner's description all that's stated is this:
    The skins for the Blizzard UI are in the 'core' set of files.

    but I'm not entirely sure what this means. I can't find any files I can edit in Photoshop, and I assume this is the reason.

    Perhaps its not even possible and only custom borders and repeating backgrounds is what Skinner can do. But if it is possible I'd love to try. I'm well versed in making textures but not in code or how to apply them. I'd love to take my custom UI to the next level.

    Thanks.
