Thanks for the update. I love this theme, now we need a WB update (hint, hint) LOL

Maggot: It was originally designed for 1280x1024. It should be res independent from 1024x768 upwards. I split the bar from the wallpaper specifically for that reason as the original could really only be used at 1280x1024.

Great theme, pjpowell! Yes, it does work at 1280 x 1024..
The menu bar and the three objects on the right side of the screen will not allow windows to be placed over them, is this a limitation of the javascript with Windows? I notice on most Desktop X themes, the objects are either always on top, or always on the bottom. It would be great it they work like windows...
anyway, thanks for an elegant theme!

jam_dock: You can change them to normal if you want. Just right click them and select propertyies->Relation and set to nromal. Then they will respond like a normal window. You click them they come to the top (under anything that's always on top), click something else that's above and that will pop on top of them.

pjpowell: that method works for most objects, but how do you set, for example, the icons that pop out from the "music" tab on your bar? you have the icons for napster, and winamp.. but they don't function. Is there a "how-to" site around here somewhere?

jam_dock: Looks like something in DX2 has changed in recent builds. Will try to correct the issue ASAP and upload a working one. As you have already updated the theme by the sound of it I'll explain the problems.

The problem is caused by the bars that pop out being set to None for activation. The contained objects inside now seem to inherit that setting when always on top or at normal Z-Order level. There are 3 possible solutions.

1. Set all objects to desktop level.
2. Edit the properties of each bar and set activation to 'Visible area' or anything other than 'None'
3. Set the objects inside to not be contained.

My plan is to implement number 3 and upload the updated theme very soon.
