Default What is the best way to overwrite a skin?

Hi

what is the best way to overwrite a skin that is not the default skin? For instance, how can I overwrite a css file of a skin (a theme from xcart team) from my personal skin?

Is there any priority in the order the skins are executed ? I would say alphabetically...

Thanks

Yes, you can overwrite files from other skins:

The priority is likely depends on the order in which the skins are registered. So, if you make your new module depend on the module adding the original custom skin, you should be able to hack on top of the original custom skin files.

Hi, thanks for the answers

still I am struggling to give priority to my css. For instace, I have SportSkin skin and I have created a new skin (MyOwnSkin). I have placed a css file here following the links you provided but still the SportSkin has the priority. The css of MyOwnSking only works when I delete the one in SportSkin. It is not clear to me how the skins are registered, in what order. How can I give priority to MyOwnSkin?

Thanks

Hi juancho!

1) While specifying CSS files, you need to make your AView class to have LC_Dependencies() on SportSkin module:

This way you will make sure that your CSS classes are declared after SportSkin ones.

2) I feel you need to make your custom module depend on the SportSkin module. You can do it according to:
http://kb.x-cart.com/display/XDD/Making+one+module+depend+on+another#Makingonemodul edependonanother-What...toworkproperly

It's optional though.
