Looks great. Is there any chance that you could please update it to support a vertical taskbar?

My 1st thought when I see a name like "Scarlet" is some gawd-awfull bright bulky eye-sore. I was pleasently surprized with this one. Might just use it for a while.

Red. You're right! It is hard, and you've done an outstanding job.I'm not a fan of red (because it's usually too 'out there'. But you've made it pleasantly muted. Good job.

I'll look at it. Its probably because I used targa files for transparency on some of those items. Win 98 probably doesn't like that.

Very well done! But I'm missing the system menu. I had to override the right-click to get it...

I'm not sure I understand your problem. What system menu are you unable to get to?

BTW thanks

I don't know, i think i get other skins which use targa's without this trouble but perhaps there not on the same items ...

Anyway if you could correct it it should be nice, i like that color and the winamp skin also ..

jcg, for the startbutton trouble, you have to put:

[StartButton]
Image=scarlet\Taskbar.StartButtonImage.bmp

and not pushbutton.tga


For the scrollbars items if i change to:
[HorzScrollThumb]
Image=scarlet\HorzScrollThumbImage.bmp
ShowDot=0
and not ShowDot=1, i don't get anymore the little thing in the middle of scrollbar which background is "pink" if i leave with ShowDot=1

(same for [VertScrollThumb] )

The last thing is coming i think?? with:

[ExtraImages]
Image=scarlet\ComboboxDropDownGlyph.bmp
Alpha=254
Trans=1

anyway, the "pink" color appears with the little image in the corner of vertical and horizontal scrollbars in explorer left side

Hope it will help you ..

I mean the menu with restore, move, resize, etc. The menu that you get when you click the application's icon in the title bar. Erm, or when you right-click the tastbar button. So, don't bother, I'll use the taskbar...

I'll be publishing an update as soon as I finish adding support for vertical taskbars. Does anyone running XP have the same magic pink problems that neophil is having?
