You can either enter the name of an element specified in the elements list, or use the <file>myimage</file> approach in the same way as with the additional_pic fields of the object field.

The playlist window is slightly different from the other windows, in that it has a variable size depending on how the user resizes the window. Therefore, some additional methods are necessary to define the placement and size of the various controls.
An Object looks like this:
Type specifies what type of object it is, which defines how the object is drawn. For the special playlist objects such as files, folders etc.., use 'Playlist'.
Value specifies what the value of the object is, for instance the playlist list box, the add files button, ...
ValueSpecifier specifies more specifically what value should be used.
Position defines the position of the object on the window.
The difference here is that there are some additional fields possible:
Tabs work in the same way as tabs for the other objects. To select a tab, the user can use the 'Mode' button.
|Playlist||The list where the files in your playlist appear|
|Folders||The list of directories that you can browse through|
|Files||The list of files in the selected folder|
|Moveable||A 'Moveable' is an invisible object. Valuespecifier
can be either 'horizontal' or 'vertical' to indicate in which direction the
user can move this object.
This object is useful to link other objects to. This way the user can specify the relative height and width of objects.
|AutoAdvance||Checkbox to enable/disable automixing
By using additionalpic_1 to 4 you can customize background, mouseover, mousedown and selected images.
|The following objects are buttons. If you want, you can skin the buttons by using the additionalpic_1,2 and 3 pictures. 1 specifies the default background, 2 specifies the mouseover image and 3 specifies the mousedown image.|
