Another minimalist request

I've been perusing other Skins and just can't seem to modify anything to suit my needs. I started off trying to resize the XP Bar to match the toolbar quickslots from zercleanui.

I tried inserting the following into their SkinDefinition.xml:
Code:
<PanelFile ID="toolbar">

	<Element ID="LevelMeter" 					X="428"  Y="187" Width="500" Height="20">					
		
        	<Element ID="LevelMeter_LevelUpXP_TutorialHighlight"    X="0"    Y="0"   Width="500" Height="20" />
        	<Element ID="LevelMeter_Experience_TutorialHighlight"   X="0"    Y="0"   Width="500" Height="20" />		
       		<Element ID="LevelMeterText" 				X="0"    Y="0"   Width="500" Height="20" />
        	<Element ID="LevelMeterFill" 				X="0"    Y="0"   Width="500" Height="20" />
       		<Element ID="LevelMeter_BonusMeter" 			X="0"    Y="0"   Width="500" Height="20" />
		<Element ID="LevelMeterBg" 				X="0"    Y="0"   Width="500" Height="20" />
		<Element ID="LevelMeter_Overlay" 			X="0"    Y="0"   Width="500" Height="20" />
        	
      	</Element>
		
</PanelFile>
I then tried changing the widths, which made no change.

I figured if I was going to ask for help, i would ask those more knowledgable for help with exactly what I have visioned.

I'd like to move the quickslot portion all the way to the bottom right corner of my screen. Below that the XP Bar of the same width. I plan on stacking the other quickslot bars right on top of it making a block. The toolbar buttons I would like to run vertically up the right side, leaving room for just them between the quickslots and the edge of my screen. I also know the auto attack button can't just disappear, or the active glow part, so maybe on the left of the bars would look fine. That's pretty much it, I can handle anything else on my own I think. I've tried looking for Skins that are close to this, but couldn't find anything that was working.

I hate to just plain ask for a custom UI, so if there is some guidance you can provide I would love to be as active with it as possible. I'm just not getting it by looking through others coding apparently. Which is awkward since I have made changes to PHP coding by just looking through it...

Thanks in advance,
Dom

Edit: If your going to read it, I can at least try to make it an easy read... and I play at 1920x1080 Res

I also had trouble with it.

i find out that you must always have the following code on the second line:

Code:
<Element ID="ToolbarField" X="0" Y="9999" Width="1024" Height="200">
it should look like this:

Code:
<PanelFile ID="toolbar">
<Element ID="ToolbarField" X="0" Y="9999" Width="1024" Height="200">

	<Element ID="LevelMeter" 					X="428"  Y="187" Width="500" Height="20">					
		
        	<Element ID="LevelMeter_LevelUpXP_TutorialHighlight"    X="0"    Y="0"   Width="500" Height="20" />
        	<Element ID="LevelMeter_Experience_TutorialHighlight"   X="0"    Y="0"   Width="500" Height="20" />		
       		<Element ID="LevelMeterText" 				X="0"    Y="0"   Width="500" Height="20" />
        	<Element ID="LevelMeterFill" 				X="0"    Y="0"   Width="500" Height="20" />
       		<Element ID="LevelMeter_BonusMeter" 			X="0"    Y="0"   Width="500" Height="20" />
		<Element ID="LevelMeterBg" 				X="0"    Y="0"   Width="500" Height="20" />
		<Element ID="LevelMeter_Overlay" 			X="0"    Y="0"   Width="500" Height="20" />
        	
      	</Element>
		
</PanelFile>
Oh by the way you notice I have set the Y at 9999 because I wanted the main bar to be always stuck at the botttom of the screen no matter what high resolution you play at.

Still isn't working, but I'm still playing with it. It disables the skin completely and makes it disappear from the dropdown in UI options.

Appreciate the reply,
Dom

Added another closing tag and now it's showing up, but the pieces aren't lining up. So progress! I hope my Kin doesn't get annoyed by my constant relogging.

Code:
<PanelFile ID="toolbar">

    <Element ID="ToolbarField" X="0" Y="9999" Width="1024" Height="200">

	<Element ID="LevelMeter" 					X="428"  Y="187" Width="500" Height="20">					
		
        	<Element ID="LevelMeter_LevelUpXP_TutorialHighlight"    X="0"    Y="0"   Width="500" Height="20" />
        	<Element ID="LevelMeter_Experience_TutorialHighlight"   X="0"    Y="0"   Width="500" Height="20" />		
       		<Element ID="LevelMeterText" 				X="0"    Y="0"   Width="500" Height="20" />
        	<Element ID="LevelMeterFill" 				X="0"    Y="0"   Width="500" Height="20" />
       		<Element ID="LevelMeter_BonusMeter" 			X="0"    Y="0"   Width="500" Height="20" />
		<Element ID="LevelMeterBg" 				X="0"    Y="0"   Width="500" Height="20" />
		<Element ID="LevelMeter_Overlay" 			X="0"    Y="0"   Width="500" Height="20" />
        	
      	</Element>
		
	</Element>
		
</PanelFile>

Ops I forgot about that Element,sorry.

Lol yeah I know what you mean about constant relogs.

When I was redesigning my dressing room I logged least 100 times or more.

This is what I'm really trying to do in the bottom right hand corner of my screen. But getting the hang of moving anything is giving me some trouble.

I'm working on it now, I think I'm making progress. So maybe I will get to claim my UI as my own .

Well, this started as a request and now I'm more looking for assistance. I've worked my way through some code from Ray UI 2.2, thank you Ray! My hat off to you sir. If a mod could move this to the appropriate forum, it would be appreciated.

This is where I am now:


I've managed to move most things where I want them, I can't seem to get the xp bar to work now though.

Any advice would be appreciated,
Dom
