It's attached to the top left of the hud element of hudmediccharge, so you have to move the entire thing, and then move the individual elements back to their original position.

So, here's how I have been doing buttons:

Placing an imagepanel where I want the button and then defining the button separately in the same location with the same wide and tall values and with no image. This allows me to click on the button and give the impression I am clicking on the image panel. The issue is, I want to use trapezoidal buttons (with .vtfs) but afaik, buttons can only be defined with tall and wide values.

My question is, is there a different, better way to create buttons in TF2 that would allow me to do this?

It takes a couple minutes. Just move hud medic charge until the icon is where you want it, then move the chargemeters and chargelabels over...Took me like 5 minutes when I did mine.

If this isn't what you're already doing there'd probably be no way to get it to work except for making a lot of buttons with the same command and having them line up to make the shape you want sort of like pixel art. Diagonals don't really exist in tf2 so the best you can do is set things up with rectangles to be as close to that as you can.

Using CExImageButton tends to be more elegant for, well, image buttons, but for what you're doing they'd only make it harder.

Finally finished with the majority of final exams and papers, so I actually have time for a life again (although I just spent some of it on a video game, but that is besides the point).

Using CExImageButton tends to be more elegant for, well, image buttons, but for what you're doing they'd only make it harder.

So I looked at fluxhud's source since I know it uses custom vtfs. It seems simple enough to define images in gamemenu.res and then use them in mainmenuoverride.res. If using these would allow me to make buttons better for the custom vtfs I will be using, why shouldn't I use them? You mentioned that it would make it harder? Can you elaborate on that because it seems to make that making lots of smaller buttons in a sort of pixel art would be vastly more time consuming.

I've been having some difficulties with the 'continue' button in the mapinfomenu (the second "motd", for lack of a better word, when you join a server, with info on the map). I used to be simply using the kbn version of this file, which worked perectly, but then started to edit it to create my own, which is by now completely different. When I changed xpos on the element "MapInfoContinue", instead of simply moving the element, it created a new one at that position. Or, possibly, it did move it, but an old copy still remained (????). The older version of the button can be clicked and functions as the continue button should, the new one does not.
I'm very confused.

Can you elaborate on that because it seems to make that making lots of smaller buttons in a sort of pixel art would be vastly more time consuming.

It looks like there's a bit of a misunderstanding.

For regular, rectangular image buttons, it's generally better to use CExImageButtons to do it. It gets the same effect as what you're doing with the separate image and button but the image is internal, so you can move things a bit easier and do a few things like change color whenever it's clicked or hovered over or whatever, as well as being more readable for anyone editing it.

The reason why you shouldn't use them here is because they're still the same buttons and still only work as rectangles. The clicking area is still the wide and tall values, it doesn't look for the image or anything. If you want to get diagonal sides on your button, you'd have to make it up of multiple smaller buttons. For this reason, using a CExImageButton isn't as good of an idea. Time consuming sure but there just aren't alternatives available, unless I'm missing some mask variable or something.

Fonts on mac are really weird. You either need to edit them in a font editor or use a different font that you know works on mac.
