i feel the current volumebar is not looking like the rest of the skin.
lets discuss ideas here on how to make it better and maybe mcborzu would love the idea and put it in the skin Big Grin

i'm working on a number presentation of the volume and thinking of placing it under the global clock (top right corner)

issue i have there is what font to use. i will come with screenshot later.

placement that low for global clock and library total text can be over.

other thought i had was using the busyx.png and get them to light up circle by circle after what level of volume you have. and maybe having the db info in the middle. would maybe look like an advance amp volume knob. not sure if this is possible at all and i know i'm to stupid to code it. anyone think this will look good in night?

i never used that volume bar cause i use an extern AVR... but i think this volume desplay is a bit to simple... unemotional... dont know how to say... but i think its not right... sorry...

with the busyx.png i think it would be much much better...

my vote goes to leaving it as it is. I also think it goes very well with the skin.
But always good to see different suggestions.

why do you want do set it with DB value?! work only with 0-100 (like percent) without any specification... couse its easier and the DB value says nothing about the volume...

don't know if percent is possible. think it comes automatic with db level.

also easier to display 0-60 on a 7 circles than 0-100. Big Grin
seems to be possible to archive so might give it a shot to see if it looks kewl
