Nice to have it update well done

Why is this just for a single resolution. Such a simple (yet effective) theme should take seconds to make multi-res. If I can do it for DW Desktop ( Link ) then I'm sure you can do it for this.

If I can do it for DW Desktop ( Link ) then I'm sure you can do it for this.

But could you do it Martin if you didn't know how to write scripts. To be fair to Latin,and also myself and many others, this is the problem.

Well yes actually it's fairly simple. Script is only needed for particularly complicated stuff.

The bar height could be set to 100% and all the objects on it could have alignments set on the relation tab. If you design at 1024 and then set these objects to "Disabled: Don't move" it should work on all resolutions.

Oops, did i forget to lock down some objects martin?

btw: i do know how to script, i am just to lazy to

also, it took so long because my computer doesnt support any res's higher then 1024

For me the issue is that there should be no need for a 1024 and a 1280 version of this theme. If your background bar is is set to a height of 100% then this is less of an issue. The main issue which stops me fixing things is the fact that most objects don't have names, and aren't allocated to parents.

This makes it difficult to edit the theme, and also I would have thought, more difficult to design.

This isn't a complaint just encouragement for better design standards (and you aren't the only culprit!)

I would make it res independent... but who wants a huge section of their dock blank!
Comment #109 Friday, April 22, 2005 8:25 AM
Sure I can appreciate this - I'm thinking for your benefit mainly. If you aren't going to script positioning then if you at least focus on object naming and grouping you could create a single dock yet make it easy for others to amend it if they want to.

Remember, that if the user has blank areas they can always use those to add more functionality themeselves.

Again, this is not me trying to preach, merely suggesting how you could make things easier for both yourself and others that download the theme.

I will script a positioning script for the next update

Impressive skin! One quick question... cant I change the links in the "Community" to something I want, instead of the 4 youve picked out? Thanx!
