Skins Macro

I was trying to add to the skin macro to also change the directory that kmeleon looks for the background image:



change_skin {
menu = "Change Skin...";
$skin = getpref(STRING, "kmeleon.general.skinsCurrent");
$skin = prompt("Name of new skin:", "Change Skin...", $skin);
setpref(STRING, "kmeleon.general.skinsCurrent", $skin);

$skinDir = getpref(STRING,"kmeleon.general.skinsDir");
$background = $skinDir . $skin . "/back.bmp";
setpref(STRING,"kmeleon.display.backgroundImage",$background);
alert("Background Set " . $background);
}




but for some reason the backgroundImage Pref never changes.
Any Ideas?

Rick:

In this line,

$background = $skinDir . $skin . "/back.bmp";

Try making it:

$background = $skinDir . $skin . "//back.bmp";

K-M uses a single '/' as an escape sequence, so you need two for paths.

Do you escape using the slash character? I thought it was backslash.... ;-)

Try using this:
$background = $skinDir . $skin . "back.bmp";
because, if I remember correctly, the $skin must have a backslash anyway.

just tried the
$background = $skinDir . $skin . "back.bmp";
and it looks fine in the message box that i have poping up.
but the pref never changes. it just stays the same original value
which points to the profile directory for the back.bmp

Rick:

That's is probably because of the way K-M does preference handling, see bug 23. To confirm it is because of the same thing that causes bug 23, run the macro and then check the prefs.js file before you close K-M, and see if it is set to the right back.bmp file, and then close K-M and check it again after. If it was changed while K-M was open, but after K-M closed it went back to what it was before, then it is because of the pref handling that results in bug 23. If it is, there doesn't seem to be much you can do about it for now.

No, it never changes after the running the macro, before or after closing. I wrote about this in a thread awhile back and got the same results with the following attempt:

change_skin {
menu = "Change Skin";
$skin = getpref(STRING, "kmeleon.general.skinsCurrent");
$skin = prompt("Name of new skin:", "Change Skin...", $skin);
setpref(STRING, "kmeleon.general.skinsCurrent", $skin);
$back = getpref(STRING, "kmeleon.display.backgroundImage");
$back = prompt("New background image:", "Change background Image...", $back);
setpref(STRING, "kmeleon.display.backgroundImage", $back);
}

Interesting, I get the same thing. I think that is a new bug. A report should prolly be filled out.
