Synth Example

Hi guys,

I've had a look at the 'synth' look and feel and think it's excellent. The problem I'm having is - it's a blank canvas and unless you define every component, then your GUI is incomplete.

As a result:

Does anyone have a complete synth xml document?

For example, does the Ocean look and feel have a synth document I could download.

It's just that the idea of going through and completing an entire synth xml document just to change the background colour of a button seems a little too much like hard work! I'm no artist and most of the ocean look and feel is fine - just a few tweaks needed.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Synth is a bit intimidating due to the blank canvas concept. You might check out the following resources:

Synth + SVG give XUI a nice feel
Two New Synth Based Look and Feels
Advanced Synth

dear you,

It's 7 years later that I ask you if these links above still exist somewhere?

I, for a project, am working with synth and I don't find anywhere some help...

Thank you very much.
I agree. Here's the link:
