WB Taskbar problem

Thursday, September 4, 2003 by Lantec | Discussion: Skinning

I'm working on my first WB skin and I've read thru 3 different tutorials. I still can not get the area of my taskbar to skin where the current tasks are shown. I use a double row horiz taskbar with qlaunch and other toolbar shortcuts on top and then all current tasks on the bottom. Both ends of the bottom skin but not the area between where the "tasks" show. It's probably something real basic but I can't get past this one item. Any help would be appreciated.

sounds to me like you may need to adjust the margins on your task bar. try that and see if it helps. Check to see if any of the margins are overlapping. This could result in a black area in the middle of the taskbar.

I tried adjusting the margins but no success. I've tried all the tile-stretch settings. It just effects the area between the rebars showing the running tasks. Each end of that area is skinned. I'll keep trying. Thanks for the suggestion Crissy14.

I've had this problem when starting out new skins. What fixed this problem for me was skinning the systray expand/contract arrow. Wierd, eh?

That's the ticket. I had left the systray button alone because it was skinned with my menu button (not sure how) and it looked good.
