WIP: Gemstone Fever - (or how I go on after my harddrive toast)

Tuesday, March 3, 2009 by mickeko | Discussion: Sneak Previews

Here's my new project, called gemstone fever... Well, it's the working title, when I'm done I may change it to something more appropriate, but then again, I may not....

 

I decided to start out with taskbar this time... And came up with this:

I have a feeling I'll run into huge trouble trying to make this happen... But time will tell...

Don't bother. It wouldn't do me much good anyway.

Yeah, and I find it very annoying... I'll leave it as is for the time being
You can just make them go away....

In SKS6 do this:

For UIS2 frames: Edit Titlebars and Windowframes / Edit UIS2 Frames / Titlebar Buttons / ...Under the Buttons tab scroll to the bottom of the list and select the System Icon. Then press the delete button on the right.

For Per Pixel Frames: Edit Titlebar and Windowframes / Edit Per Pixel Buttons / Standard Buttons / System Icon...under the Extras tab. Set the Transparency to 0 for both options.

Hmmm... I'll try and see how I like that idea.

From your image i think you must enlarge the caption because the system icon is too much big for that text background

Yeah, and I find it very annoying... I'll leave it as is for the time being though and start working on getting the buttons in order.

For the system icon, I find it better to get rid of it.  In UIS2 frames, you can delete it.  In per pixel, I find you can't delete it, but you can set the horizantal alighnment to something like -40...so that it is entirely off the window frame.  You may need to go further than -40...a couple of times, I had to go to -60 to get the dumb thing to disappear!
