I have the idea of making pictures on PS again, icons like bins and whatnot. Or, in the worse case scenario, use some from google images. Creating/Using is not my problem though. My problem lies in that, I completely forgot EVERYTHING that I knew and my brain is just as bad as my memory.
Long story short, is there a specific code that I can study/re-learn, that enables me to have, for example, two different bin icons BUT, when the bin is empty it will display only the 1 icon, and when the bin is full it will display the other icon which gonna look like "filled up" like an actual bin for example.
I think I know/remember how to add sound effects and actions....proooobably....what I can't remember or understand is how to make the above example viable. I assume I have to put the 2 images on @resource folder, obviously, make a path on the bin.ini that is gonna read both of them, but I don't know for the life of me how to make that happen, I don't even know if it's possible or If I am asking something too much...
So far, I've managed to make a big icon that says Recycle Bin, and has a count of how many exact items are being deleted.
Please, this is really important to me, I tried to recover my account just to make this question here. I hope someone will see it and help me out. I am planning to make this skin, finish it and keep working on it until March. I want to give it as a present to someone and if they really like it, I may re-activate my Deviantart and upload it there for other people to use it. Yes, it's a birthday planned gift. I want to start simple and modest with that and keep working/updating it with more and neat features, but I am a loser noob.
But, I want to work hard on that, so, guys, please, I legit beg of you, I need this help/guidance. In the meantime, I am reading up some commands about most of the things, but I am having a trouble to understand/memorize them all....
EDIT : I found a picture online, as a sample, I copied illustro's demo code - old version of illustro made by me - and tried to make it work. So far, I managed to make the picture visible on the desktop and WITH the sound working as intended. But, my issue lies elsewhere, there is some sort of the same image like a mirror whenever I hover my mouse over the bin icon. I can move it with X/Y but only with them. It feels like a cropped button from that image ON the image....I am confused. Here is my code so far, I don't know what else to do.
Code: Select all
