Box Styles

Jump to navigation Jump to search

There are 15 definable rectangle/box styles, which you can select from for the appearance of each textbox box or rectangle slice. Box styles also are used for various boxes in builtin menus, as documented below.

The 'edge' color option usually doesn't matter if you set a box border graphic to be used, unless the simple 'line' border shows through underneath, or a few places where the edge color is used directly in a menu.

The 'style' attribute of a rectangle slice refers to a box style, but the 'border' attribute also refers to the border of a certain box style rather than directly to the box border spriteset number.
