NZB - Thanks
sc0obizzle - The download should result in a .DxTheme file. You should be able to double-click on it and it will be opened with DesktopX, if you have it. If you don't, then go here:Link

snarph - That's high praise! (I know exactly what you mean )

Norton throws up Malicious Script. Why do you think this is happening?

FR&SJ - Not sure - don't use Norton myself, but it could be the mail checker script? Is there a way you can tell Norton to ignore DesktopX scripts?

glowster - It could happen, not sure when I will have time, though.

Great theme! It is very useful and easy to customize. I have made my tweaks and will enjoy using it for a long time. There is just one thing that I would like to customize. It's the media player. I would prefer to use RealPlayer or iTunes instead of WMP. I know that there is no API for RealPlayer so I'll use iTunes. You have scripted the buttons. Any suggestions on how to change them and the other controls to use iTunes instead of WMP? I am not a DX3 expert although I can modify scripts and objects without any trouble. Give me a nudge and I'll make the appropriate changes.

Thanks,
Mark

Mark - Actually, I based the media player on the work of Tiggz, in his K-Media widget. I liked the way he handled playlist selection, versus the method used in most DX Player based widgets. The trade-off was that he used an Active-X MS-Media player control as the basis, and as such would require it to be pretty much rebuild completely to do what you want. I will possbily do a media player that works with the theme that uses the more generic DX Player, but it could be a while. In the meantime, I would suggest that you either just use it as is, or remove it from the theme and download another player widget that works the way you want. (To remove it, just right-click on the player and select Remove (or Delete if you are in Builder Mode) and select Yes to the question about related objects.)

I began modifying the widget but you have too much coded to just easily port to DXPlayer. Your auto hide feature makes the mods non trivial. I would forgo auto hide but I find it too valuable. So I will most likely not use it until you have time to make the changes. I suppose I could hack the script if I could figure out how to subsititute iTunes for WMP.

Mark - I've uploaded a DX object that you might want to take a look at. It's a sample docking/autohide object that you could easily adapt as the backing for a DX Player. It should be out of moderation in a day or two.
Fairyy~

I just wanted to say that from looking at your preview the Theme looks great..unfortunately the resolution isnt what im use to. buzzh58 made me a DesktopX theme geared for a fairy using 800x600 resolution. I know very few use that reso....

but that doesnt mean I cant comment on your effort..

I'm having several script errors that are making this theme impossible to use. I get server type errors on the e-mail objects, and I'm getting an error on the help button. In addition, the menu bar jumps even when I dock it. I've deleted my old version and downloaded it today, but no changes. Please help me. The theme looks great, but its too buggy to use.

Tycho7 - I haven't had reports on these kinds of issues, and I'm not experiencing them here, so I need to know what your system is like: what Windows version, DesktopX version, what else you have running, etc.

shrapnal - In general, if it is a shortcut type object, then use Set Target on the DesktopX right-click menu for the object. However, it also depends on how the person who put together the object or theme did it, so I would address the question directly to the author. If you are working with the Dragon Desktop, then I would look at the help first.
