Allow the composition author to provide a custom Layer (or a group of Layers) for each component of each UI widget, to completely customize the visual appearance of UI widgets.

Proposed new nodes:

  • Make Action Button Theme (Layers) with the following Layer inputs:
    • Background
    • Background: Hovered
    • Background: Pressed
  • Make Toggle Button Theme (Layers) with the following Layer inputs:
    • Checkmark
    • Checkmark: Hovered
    • Checkmark: Pressed
    • Checkbox
    • Checkbox: Hovered
    • Checkbox: Pressed
    • Checkbox: Toggled
    • Checkbox: Toggled and Hovered
  • Make Slider Theme (Layers) with the following Layer inputs:
    • Handle
    • Handle: Hovered
    • Handle: Pressed
    • Active Track
    • Active Track: Hovered
    • Inactive Track
    • Inactive Track: Hovered

You could then create your own Layers (using Vuo's built-in Layer nodes, or using custom images) to feed in to these nodes, and the UI widgets would display the appropriate Layer(s) at the appropriate times.
