Aero Glass BETA #506

 

So there is the first beta version intended for testing. Archive includes both 32bit and 64bit library. Just rename required version to DWMGlass.dll.

 

Since the last experimental version, it contains many fixes to DWM internal structures and pointers and automatic theme layout remapping for TH2.

Currently, it needs to be tested on Win10 TH2, Win10 TH1 and Win8.1, then we can think about entering the ready-to-release phase.

Works great on 10586. However, on Modern App titlebars, it's a bit smaller than usual. here is what I mean. The text and buttons aren't taking advantage of all the space. (If it's too small, here is a link http://i65.tinypic.com/23qrde.png

Here is same page on mine.  Perhaps it is your themeatlas causing issues.

Thanks for the new build. Running it on 586. Reporting:

- Still getting unstable windows with the Winstep Nexus Dock (see the dock on the bottom of the desktop)

- Without Nexus Dock it's more stable, however also getting some instability when moving a Firefox window from one screen to another (I have 2 monitors)

Attached is the snapshot of the screen and the debug.logattachicon.gifScreenshot .jpgattachicon.gifdebug.txt

 

What does "unstable" windows mean?

 

carlitosoo555: Currently, you cannot directly. You must modify your theme or use UxThemeSignatureBypass which respects Aero Glass settings.

Anybody having Windows 10's default theme atlas? I just want to make the control buttons white & the shadow around windows more visible.

For anyone who'd like to give it a try, here's a custom theme atlas that brings just a bit more style to the caption buttons.  I haven't yet worked up rounded-corners on the window frames themselves, as I have with theme atlases in the past.  That's still work in progress.

 

http://Noel.ProDigitalSoftware.com/ForumPosts/Win10/10586/SquareCorners10586.zip

 

Features:  Glass caption buttons that live inside the frame with light glyphs and slightly unsharp corners, and are subtle when not in use, good for dark or light backgrounds.  Blue tint for active windows, works IMO best with white title bar text and a black or dark color for inactive windows.  Significant drop shadows.

Please let me know what you think.

Thanks for the quick feedback.  I only just finished it before posting, so if you find any glitches make sure to let me know and I'll tidy them up.

You always do a great job making themes. I like this one except one thing is Ilike it if the borders stayed clear meaning no tint colours

I'm just using the default Windows 10 theme since I unchecked the theme at setup so I don't see why the default theme can cause that.

Unstable means that when i touch an icon on the dock, move a firefox window, a firefox window touches the dock or I move the windows from one monitor to another - it ruptures and flickers. Sorry for poor explanation.

I shot a video of my screen so you can watch the disruptions https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=3622EFE518296C3!427&authkey=!APyp6p1DAVxff0M&ithint=file%2cavi.I hope you can get it.

It looks nice. I like the convex title bar and the caption buttons. However, I prefer to have the color of the active title bar have the color I define in the GUI. Besides, it is too opaque to my taste. I'd prefer it much more transparent. If the active title bar were as the inactive one with just the color defined in the GUI (without the blue tint) - would be perfect. The title text color I use is golden (255 255 0) and it looks great with your theme too.

iweksler: do I understand that this happens only with that dock application? Is this application free and is it possible to download it somewhere?
