    Hellp me modding PiGrid skin

    I want to mod PiGrid skin in such a way, that is displays icons in one line only. And with somewhat big icons. I tried so many hours but cant figured out, how this can be accomplished to suit my 1280x400 screen. Any help will be appriciated.
    Tills now I only achieved this.

    I recently added a "piCorePlayer Documentation" project by mini11 called "Add a 7.9 inch Waveshare display" that has a bit of info about modifying PiGridSkin.

    It is for piCorePlayer but it still might be helpful.

    EDIT: Search user Eyerex's topics, he has been doing a lot of jivelite mods.

    Thanks a lot Greg
    But I have already made success in waveshare 7.9 inch screen. Since I posted thread about this here and never got really then ultimately I figured its out how to use pcp with jivelite on this screen. And modified the layout to adust tarck info and some elements on screens. And I was too lazy to write a tutorial since i dint got any reply on my thread so i thought there isnt any user here using 7.9 inch screen. Its so nice that you have written tutorial here

    Now I want one line menu items that I cant figure it out. Actually i want hifirose rs150 type interface, if you have seen this streamer.

    Here's the HDGridSkinApplet.lua did resize a few icon images just to see what they looked like ps think problem so far selecting stuff is i haven't worked out when a menu has say 9 icons and i set to 1 row of 6 items and it won't scroll to other 3 so it's messing things up a bit

    Selection is working ok with me. Did resize the icons as I posted in first post but there is always 2 line of icons on main screen I want oneliner menu. And Icons with names centered in width of screen.

    I'm still not geting far

    Just wondered if you have had a look at the scrollbar.lua in pcp-jivelite.tcz it say below also i don't understand -- Create a new label to display 'Hello World' which may help

    -- Create a new label to display 'Hello World'
    local scrollbar = jive.ui.Scrollbar("label")

    -- Set the scrollbar range, 10 items bubble is in the middle
    scrollbar:setScroll(1, 10, 5)

    =head1 STYLE

    The Scrollbar includes the following style parameters in addition to the widgets basic parameters.

    =over

    B<bg_img> : the background image tile.

    B<img> : the bar image tile.

    B<horizontal> : true if the scrollbar is horizontal, otherwise the scrollbar is vertial (defaults to horizontal).
