    When trying to make a flexible skin it is useful to use skin expressions (and/or SkinSettings) in the fields Hyperlink, Action, textcolor (probably all color fields), onleft, onright, onup and ondown.

    It seems that MP will not evaluate Expressions in numeric fields. This hinders skin development.

    Steps to Reproduce:
    Set a skin property <entry Name="#test">35</entry>, add a button to the skin as follows:

    And MP will stop rendering any controls after this control. Log will contain the error (log from real live experiment, includes trying cint conversion function. Result is the same for any type of expression):
    [2013-06-13 13:50:13,178] [Log	] [MPMain  ] [INFO ] - GUIControlFactory.Create: #(cint(#BasicHome.B0.Hyperlink)) ist kein gültiger Wert für Int32.
