The derma library allows you to add custom derma controls and create & modify derma skins.


This is NOT a function, it's a variable containing all derma controls, registered with derma. DefineControl. Use derma. GetControlList to retrieve this list. It's a list of tables, each having 3 keys, all from derma. DefineControl arguments: string ClassName - The class name of the panel string Description - The description of the panel string BaseClass - The base class of the panel
This is NOT a function, it's a variable containing all registered via derma. DefineSkin derma skins.


derma.Color( string name, Panel pnl, table default )
Gets the color from a Derma skin of a panel and returns default color if not found
table derma.DefineControl( string name, string description, table tab, string base )
Defines a new Derma control with an optional base. This calls vgui. Register internally, but also does the following: Adds the control to derma. GetControlList Adds a key "Derma" - This is returned by derma. GetControlList Makes a global table with the name of the control (This is technically deprecated and should not be relied upon) If reloading (i. e. called this function with name of an existing panel), updates all existing instances of panels with this name. (Updates functions, calls PANEL:PreAutoRefresh and PANEL:PostAutoRefresh, etc. )
derma.DefineSkin( string name, string descriptions, table skin )
Defines a new skin so that it is usable by Derma. The default skin can be found in garrysmod/lua/skins/default. lua
