A Layer is a fundamental UI building block for defining visible UI elements of Frames. A Layer is an element of an Layers array defined in a Frame. Layer XML elements, as a part of Layers array, can be defined on any Frame, which includes elements like Buttons and CheckButtons.
- Texture ... - 0 or more Textures to be rendered in the Layer
- FonstString ... - 0 or more FonstStrings to be rendered in the Layer
- level (DRAWLAYER) - Layer level in 'Z order'. Default is 'ARTWORK'.
- textureSubLevel (int) - Additional sub-leveling of 'level'. Range of -8 .. 7. Default is '0'.

<Frame name="MyFrame"> <Layers>
This example will show a frame with a single default layer, displaying two textures.
There are 3 levels of layers: BACKGROUND is in the back, ARTWORK is in the middle and OVERLAY is in front. If you want to be sure that a object is before another, you must specify the level where you want to place it.
BACKGROUND - Level 0. Place the background of your frame here.
BORDER - Level 1. Place the artwork of your frame here .
ARTWORK - Level 2. Place the artwork of your frame here.
OVERLAY - Level 3. Place your text, objects, and buttons in this level.
HIGHLIGHT - Level 4. Place your text, objects, and buttons in this level.
- Elements in the HIGHLIGHT Layer are automatically shown or hidden when the mouse enters or leaves.
- For Highlighting to work you need enableMouse="true" in your <Frame> attributes.
