Batch Manager and Profiles

705A - Add two jobs to the batch manager queue - then move the 2nd one to the top with the arrows in batch manager. It still starts with the first job that was entered.
Also as regards profiles. If you try and alter or save a profile when saving a job it does not save but you can edit, alter and save from tools profile list which works fine.
I've found that the dark Main window better suits me although I wish I could lighten it just a bit whereas the default seems too bright.
So far so good - the quality of the saved jobs looks better.

I can confirm the processing order issue.

Altering the profile in batch seems to work OK

Additionally I noticed modifying the destination folder does not persist.

When you edit a profile in the Save dialog, or batch manager, it's a temporary edit that is only applied to that job. The only way to permanently edit a profile is via the Edit Profiles List dialog. You can check the SAve as new profile button and your changes will be saved to a new profile at the bottom of the list. However due to a limitation of windows we can not add it to the Save As type list until the dialog is closed and reopened, so we basically use the temporary changes for the current job and then save them to a new profile when the dialog exits.

The UI is skinnable. There are XML templates in the install folder. The Dark and High Contrast ones are actually used from that folder, so be careful changing those, the Default one is hard coded into the app so it's only there for reference. The best way to change it is to copy the one you want to use as a starting point to My Documents/VideoReDo/UIStyles and then edit it there. The colors are all hex values, like used in HTML, so you can use something like this to find one you like...

The XML code is relatively simple. It uses a cascading structure, so every control has a unique name, but they can have a parent style which they are based on. There is also a way to set a style as the default for all controls of a give type. (i.e. all buttons)

I plan to add a UI based skin editor eventually, but for now you'll have to edit the XML by hand if you want to change the colors.
