I want it to display on my skin so I know which bank is loaded without having to dive way down in the browser section. PLease see image. Right now I have custom text there saying Video Bay 1.

replace your text="VIDEO BAY 1" (or format="VIDEO BAY 1") with action="get_sampler_bank" in your <textzone><text> line.

In your skin though, i see another block with BAY 3 and some samples(?) below. The action above will get the same of the currently selected Sample Bank. What's the purpose of the BAY 3 buttons ?

With the default pad coding, it does display there.

If that's a custom skin which you've written, then have a look at the XML code for the pad section in the wiki or in the default skin, to see how it's done.

I converted all those slots to sample playback buttons in my skin. So I have 16 slots available to trigger banks of video clips. I just called it Video Bay 1, 2, 3, 4 etc because I want to use them primarily for video clips. I have many different banks of clips so when I switch to different banks having the bank name displayed helps me select a proper theme for the music I am playing. Thanks to all for your help!
