Menu Bar DX WIP Updated!!! Done!!

A Work in Progress

Monday, November 23, 2009 by RedneckDude | Discussion: Sneak Previews

I figgered it was about time for a non blind based skin. In this skin I use a texture by Sc4rfy, and some graphics by Umar123 at DA. Permissions for both, of course. As usual, scripting by sViz and testing by Wizard1956. Believe it or not, I did do some of it myself...lol!!!!  Concept by RND.

Looks like a nice new design you have there Jim. 

Since you show a docked view i take it can be undocked also?

Can you add in a color changer for the skin?  That would make it available then to be used in any theme/suite.

Is this built as a DX Theme or widget/gadget?

+1 If not,this may be one I turn into a widget,just for that ability. I like the looks and layout,but have few WindowBlinds that will go well with that color. Even so,I think it's a great DX theme.

I do wish SD would get the meter plug-ins to work properly  on systems with over 2Gb's of RAM,multiple cores and/or 64 bit OS's. Not all of us  have a P4 with 512 mb's running XP, which is what the plug-ins appear to be made for. Inaccurate meters are worse than none at all.

I know what you are saying Wizard, but thet last several of RedneckDude's Themes have been showing the correct information on my Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit system with 8gb of memory and  quad cpu.  So maybe Jim has found the right script.

Yes, it can undock. It is a desktop. All will hide off screen except the rounded edged bar. A color changer will not change the color of the media player parts and menu bars. Therefore, a color changer won't be added. But I may do several colors.

Only the text meters are accurate.

 

Yes, Brian. Goes well with Aqueous.

It can be difficult to keep focused in making a WB... takes soooo long and so many different parts to skin. But you can do it, Jim!
