I'm not really doing anything with this notion. This is more of a passing thought.
Is it possible in the lua environment to "hijack" a frame's inherits=" " designation?
What I am thinking, (and I believe a few other's out there might be interested in as well ), is that this ability could dramatically ease the pain of doing a complete skin conversion of the UI.
Assuming of course that a given frame utilizes a template inheritance that contains textural references; If we could redirect to a template of our own creation, it stands to reason that the sky could very quickly (and relatively easily) become the limit on total graphical re-works of even many of the default UI elements, from the chat frame to a status bar texture.
Just a random musing.
Any thoughts? Even just to shoot me down and edumacate me?
