> Hi guys,
> Stuart Morgan (who, in case you didn't know, is our MythUI
> author/guru) began working on a demo theme to show MythUI capable of
> the exact same visual effects found in many other popular media center
> apps a while back, and generously allowed me to upload it and share it
> with you guys for instructional purposes.  You can find the download
> link on the MythUI Demo Theme page at the wiki:

> If you are looking for a totally useable-in-production theme, you are
> probably going to be frustrated-- the menu is entirely undone, as are
> many of the screens.  The various screens of MythVideo and the
> scheduler are themed to look like some familiar faces, though, and
> there is a wealth of knowledge here about MythUI style, tips and
> tricks, and formatting.  Stuart is also very familiar with good
> theming code practices, so following his formatting would be really
> helpful too.
> I want to stress that if you are looking for something for your daily
> use, you may come away frustrated-- but if you want to be able to look
> at an image and say "Hey, how'd he do that?" and check the code for a
> good, clean, recommended approach, this is the place to look.  I have
> slightly modified this copy of the code to use the new fanart and
> banner stuff, but it's otherwise as it was given to me.
> Download the theme, try it out, and bring questions back here.  For
> those of you out there starting on themes, any mockups to share?  Feel
> free to post theme here and those of us with a bit of practice may be
> able to offer some advice on how to accomplish what you want most
> easily.

Had a look at the wiki for the themeing last night... Very good. I've
made a couple of themes myself (not released though as I never fully
finished them) and I'm looking forward to finding some time to finally
get one out when .22 comes out :)

Great work guys.
