I've created a skin which is basically a "tab" on the left of the screen, showing some shortcuts ( 3 or 7 items) features : -Themeable : icons and background ( ini editing) -roll over on the text -smooth animation
-Preview : ] -File : ]
So I need you to tell me if you see problems and bugs. For example It seems that to 7 item versions makes sometimes cpu going mad...
Do you think it lack a zoom on roll-over on each icon?
I also would like to include other backgrounds and icons...What do you suggest ?
Btw, i'm planning to do a right side version, and a dock.
I took a quick look into the .ini file, looks like the CPU usage has dropped down when I change the Update value from AnimSpd=30 to AnimSpd=60. Might not be it at all, I'll look more into it later when I have more time.
I haven't noticed any problems, but I'd definitely try a dark text, rather than just a shadow, maybe also a darker arrow. Personally, I'd find it more logical to open it, run a program and go back to close it (ie, arrow on left side).
jER, just as an fyi, you can also upload your unfinished skin and screenshot right here on Custo. When you go to , just check the "Work in progress" box on the form. Then the skin will have its own page where people can comment, which you might find useful.
Tanks to you all for your comments, sorry to answer so lately!
@Nylons : ouep, j'ai augmenté la valeur de AnimSpeed pour que ca rame moins, mais il y a d'enormes différence entre w2000 et Xp, surement suivant la version de Gdi+
@mailmerge : I could use a font to draw the arrow, whose color could been changed by editing a variable int the ini file..I'll do that
@Max : thanks :)
@ wraybling : Well i didn't upload anything yet since the "rebirth" of custo, i'll do it that way next time :)
BTW : I've made a "dock-like" and right version of this tab, facing small problems...Nothing huge. My goal is, in fact, to create a litestep theme using rainmeter as a module ( because of the number possibilities of widgets, but the process is quite different ), a picture is better than a long speech, something like
