  • Mood:

Since people have asked, this is how I did my metadata in a box. :)

Edit 1: Simplify, include code for flatbox.

This works inside your print_entry code. (check this tutorial if you're not sure what I'm talking about.)

I think this code is self-documenting.

If you'd like this box at the top of your entry, put the code above the """$e.text""";
If you'd like this box at the bottom of your entry, put it below """$e.text""";

var Color header = $*header_bgcolor;
var Color headerMinus5  = $header->darker(50);
var Color headerPlus3   = $header->lighter(30);
var string corner_color = "/p0"+$headerPlus3->substr(1,6)+"1"+$headerMinus5->substr(1,6)+"2"+$header->substr(1,6);

if (size $e.metadata != 0)
{
   var string formatting = "width:27.5%; margin:1px; float:right;";

   #Uncomment the next 2 lines if you want a round style box.
   var string box_open = """<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" style="$formatting"><tr><td valign="top" rowspan="3" colspan="3" width="5"><img src="$*PALIMGROOT/component/curve-top-left.gif$corner_color" width="5" height="5" alt="" border="0" /></td><td class="dkLine"><img src="$*PALIMGROOT/component/clear.gif" width="1" height="1" alt="" border="0" /></td><td valign="top" rowspan="3" colspan="3" width="5"><img src="$*PALIMGROOT/component/curve-top-right.gif$corner_color" width="5" height="5" alt="" border="0" /></td></tr><tr><td class="ltLine"><img src="$*PALIMGROOT/component/clear.gif" width="1" height="1" alt="" border="0" /></td></tr><tr><td class="tabBg"><img src="$*PALIMGROOT/component/clear.gif" width="1" height="3" alt="" border="0" /></td></tr><tr><td class="dkLine" width="1"><img src="$*PALIMGROOT/component/clear.gif" width="1" height="1" alt="" border="0" /></td><td class="ltLine" width="1"><img src="$*PALIMGROOT/component/clear.gif" width="1" height="1" alt="" border="0" /></td><td class="tabBg" width="3"><img src="$*PALIMGROOT/component/clear.gif" width="1" height="3" alt="" border="0" /></td><td class="tabBg" width="100%"><div>""";
