SkinCollection Object

The SkinCollection object is a collection providing access to all skins defined on the server. See Changing button images using skins help topic for information about skins.

Remarks

The SkinCollection object allows you to perform the following tasks:

  • Enumerate skins defined on the system;
  • Retrieve skins by their names or ordinal numbers;
  • Create new skins;
  • Delete skins.

The SkinCollection object is a standard OLE Automation collection object.

Object access

To access SkinCollection object you need to retrieve it using the Skins property of Server object.

Set SkinColl=P2F.Skins
Here P2F refers to a Server object instance. Then you can access its properties and methods using a reference to the created object.

Properties
 

Name Type Parameters Description

item

Skin object SkinName:String or Number Returns a Skin object with the given name or at the given position. If the parameter is of string type, it is interpreted as a skin name and the skin with the specified name is returned. If the parameter is of number type, it is interpreted as an ordinal position and the skin at this position is returned. The ordinal number must lie between 1 and the value of Count property.

Count

Integer Returns the number of skins defined in the system.

Examples

The following VBScript example retrieves a skin named "MySkin":

Set MySkin=SkinColl("MySkin")
The following script enumerates all defined skins and displays each skin name:
 
For I=1 To SkinColl.Count
  MsgBox SkinColl.item(I).Name
Next
In VBScript there is a more elegant way of enumerating the skins because SkinCollection object is a standard OLE Automation collection:  

For Each Skin in SkinColl
  MsgBox Skin.Name
Next
