Element ID's

Hello all,

I've been lurking in these forums for the past couple of days absorbing as much as a I could while I work away on a UI. I have ran into a few things and I can't seem to find an answer.

First off, I'm assuming that only the items listed here can be skinned, correct?
http://lotro.turbine.com/article/330

Additionally, where can I find element ID's? I've seen some pretty amazing UI's from the author's here that utilize these, but I cannot seem to find any documentation on them. If there isn't a list, how can I go and determine the Element ID?

Lastly, any tricks or "gotcha's" the experienced authors would mind sharing?

Thanks everyone!

First of welcome here, nice to meet you.
Second I'm fairly new since Feb or so.
Third, have you downloaded the skin pack for book 14?
Link:
http://www.lotrointerface.com/downlo...UISkinArt.html

The zip contains everything you need,except the instructions on how to's.
Basically you can reskin anything in the zip.

The zip also cantains the list ID's tags for every skins.

The way I learn is when I downloaded the skin from Ledmirage
http://www.lotrointerface.com/downlo...urinsFolk.html

I study the skindefinition file and the way he put his skins in different folders.
He renamed all his skins to his likeing,while my skins has the default names that come with the skin pack.
To me this is easier and less time consuming for me.

Yeah, I have the mapping assets down ok, there are images I'd like to change in the UI (and it looks like you can't ).

The element ID's have me baffled though, how do people discover the element ID's?

For example, this:
Code:
      <Element ID="ToolbarFieldMain" X="0" Y="0" Width="940" Height="85">
      </Element>
      <Element ID="LevelMeter" X="0" Y="77" Width="935" Height="8">
        <Element ID="LevelMeterFill" X="3" Y="1" Width="931" Height="6">
          <Element ID="LevelMeter_BonusMeter" X="3" Y="1" Width="931" Height="6">
          </Element>
        </Element>

LOL

I could just kick myself. I just opened the SkinDictionary.txt from the Book 14 assets (I never did before, I assumed it was just the mapping ID's) and lo and behold, there are the Element ID's.

Thanks for pointing me to it Brygard2007, definately appreciate it.
