drop-down box in toolbar for dynamically switching new skins

Dear Fred & developers,

There'd better be drop-down/combo box for dynamically switching new skins (Default/Office/Silver). We could add cookie implementation for remembering user's favorite skin. Currently what we see in JavaScript Sample 05 is a separate part of editor toolbar. What I'd like to suggest is that drop-down box combined in editor toolbar.

Thank you so. aungkhant

I don't think that this feature needs such privileged position. I don't remember of any application that has the ability to switch skins and it's shown as a dropdown in the main toolbar.

The toolbar should be just for the elements that are used on a daily base, and configuration options should be available only under a context menu, preferences dialog or such, but not in the main interface.

I agree with Alfonso. This one sounds much more indicated to be in a context menu available for the toolbar itself. It is interesting, but probably not doable before the 3.0.

If so, what about a button for skins switching ? This button will open a popup that has a dropdown box asking user for his desired skin.

What I mean is it can be added in Config but it is not necessarily enabled by default.

I feel, separation (of skin switching from toolbar) makes implementers/developers write a little more code?

This may cause them pain when they're dealing with dozens of pages. They'll have to write codes to each page though server side takes care of it. They'll have to css it.

Sorry if my suggestion sounds wierd. Thank you so for reviewing.

You can create that button with a plugin and it would behave exactly as you want (a button or a dropdown, but I would prefer a button to show a preferences dialog).

The tricky part would be to change the skin without reloading the editor, I don't know right now if it is possible.
