General information

Changed Load Menu.png
  • The XML on this page is compatible with OniSplit v0.9.61.0.
  • "WM" stands for "Window Manager".
  • WMDD files are global (level0_Final.dat).
  • A WMDD file contains either a screen with controls or a dialog with buttons (e.g. WMDDdialog_ChangeRestart).
  • Does WMDDdialog_text_console define the size of "text consoles" as 460x410?
  • Oni's out-of-game windows overlay each other. The parent window becomes visible if you remove the background (see image on right).

XML structure

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Oni>
   <WMDD id="0">
       <Caption>Options</Caption>
       <Id>152</Id>
       <State>Visible</State>
       <Style>Center</Style>
       <X>0</X>
       <Y>0</Y>
       <Width>640</Width>
       <Height>480</Height>
       <Controls>
           [...]
       </Controls>
   </Instance>
</Oni>

[...] means at least one WMDDControl block.

Example

<WMDDControl>
   <Text>Options</Text>
   <Class>Label</Class>
   <Id>0</Id>
   <State>1</State>
   <Style>1114112</Style>
   <X>5</X>
   <Y>10</Y>
   <Width>70</Width>
   <Height>20</Height>
   <Font>
       <Family>TSFFTahoma</Family>
       <Style>Bold</Style>
       <Color>255 127 0</Color>
       <Size>10</Size>
   </Font>
</WMDDControl>
  • If you have a TXMB in your WMDD, don't put additional <WMDDControl> blocks under the block with the TXMB or your new blocks will be hidden.
  • The block is always the same if <Text> contains "outline":
<Text>outline</Text>
<Class>Title</Class>
<Id>0</Id>
<State>5</State>
<Style>65536</Style>
