How to change the Background Skinner uses

Using Textures as the Background

N.B. If you have previously changed the Backdrop settings to achieve this please reset them to their defaults by using the defaults button on the options panel and then choose just these settings.

To use textures as the background to frames as opposed to a colour you need to do the following:

  1. Turn on the option to use the Background Texture via the Option Panel.
  2. Specify the texture that you want to use.
    - <filename> uses the format:
    Interface\ChatFrame\ChatFrameBackground
    
    without a file extension. The texture file '''must''' be in either TGA or BLP format.
  3. Choose Tile if the texture should be tiled otherwise it will be stretched to fit.
  4. Reload the UI: <pre>/rl</pre>

To turn off the Textured Background, you must do the following:

  1. Turn off the option to use the Background Texture via the Option Panel.
  2. Reload the UI: <pre>/rl</pre>
