How To Use

SkinnedButton::skininit DLL Function

Skins the installer's buttons.

Note: for version 1.2 you must copy 'skinnedbutton-vs2008.dll' to NSIS/plugins directory and rename it to 'skinnedbutton.dll'

Syntax

SkinnedButton::skinit "BitmapImage"
Pop "ResultVar"

Since version 1.2 You can provide additional parameter - color of buttons' text If you do not specify this parameter, color 0x000000 (Black) will be used.

SkinnedButton::skinit "BitmapImage" "0xFFFFFF"
Pop "ResultVar"

Parameters

ResultVar
Variable where the result of the operation (if it succeeded or not) is returned.
BitmapImage
A 47x30 image file containing two button images of 47x15 each, the first being the button image used when the button is not clicked by the user, and the second being the button image used when the button is clicked by the user.

Example

skinnedbutton::skinit /NOUNLOAD "$PLUGINSDIR\button.bmp" ; You can add color like "0xFFFFFF" in version 1.2
  Pop $0
  StrCmp $0 "success" noerror
    MessageBox MB_ICONEXCLAMATION|MB_OK "skinned button error: $0"
  noerror:

SkinnedButton::unskinit DLL Function

Releases the skinned buttons resources.

Syntax

SkinnedButton::unskinit

Problems

  • During the installation, the button "Show Detail" is unskinned.
  • When the plug-in is used, if you used this code line:
    SendMessage $HWNDPARENT "0x408" "-1" ""
    to automatically return to the previous page, the installer will crash.
