It took some color definitions to get enough contrast to see text boxes on my LCD screens, see image for adjusted colors.

OK, your screen must show the colors differently. It works fine for me with the color edits shown above. I did those in SkinStudio and saved your modified skin. For me, your skin is a "must have". I love it!!! I've tried them all and this one works the best for me, thanks for sharing!!!

Nikos, I, too, have a slight issue with the textboxes. When I need to enter, for example, my username and password on a site, the two boxes are a very pale blue in color, I think... I can't see them, so must move my cursor around the area I think they're in to get a "text" cursor, then I can enter text. Not issue enough to stop me from using this WB, I keep forgetting I can just go to display properties>Appearance>Advanced>More Advanced>Selected Items, and darken the blue just a little. I just did that even as I write here, so issue should be past. Fine windowblind, along with all your hyalo widgets and Vista Blue Skies wall. Waiting for dual-weather widget to complete the hyalo set. Thank you so much.

[nope...the "selected items" darkening didn't change the text-entry box, so I'll try and use Skin Studio as described above.]

I missed this one!

Very nice work my friend.
You are the Master when it comes to detailing and color choices.
This skin is easy on these old eyeballs and very useable from day to day.
Thanks for coming out of the woodwork and sharing your work with us Nikos!

Now I understand the "problem of the invisible textboxes", they don't have border...
Personally doesn't bother me at all, but seems that for some of you it is important.
SkinStudio says about it: Default value is none This attribute is optional.

Solution with Skinstudio: Controls->Edit Box->Edge color: Choose a dark color instead of none.
This will solve the problem.
Until the next update you can have the corrected version from: http://www.adni18.com/gallery/details.php?image_id=253


Thank you all again for your nice comments, appreciate them

Thanks, I added this and it is a big help! I'm still using the color edits too to get a little more contrast for edit boxes and midi windows.

Thanks so much for the SkinStudio mini-tutorial! This will be the first time I've actually used SS, even though I've had it installed for a long time. A golden opportunity to alleviate my fears of doing the wrong thing in SS. (Reminiscent of the fears I had of removing the cover from my PC before I built one...) Many thanks!!

A nice, clean take on the Windows Vista that isn't too dark and isn't too gaudy! Good job my man!
