I don't believe it! I have been using "Digital Revenge" since it's inception and have been using it with Tiggz' Aero widgets. I was just thinking of emailing you to see if you could do this in the Aero style. I better get a Powerball ticket! Just beautiful. Condider all other DX themes deleted! Thank you.

Quite the bit of irony. Glad you enjoy it! I should update Digital Revenge with the tray customizers too.

Very well done Chadamus, big 5 Stars

Thanks. This one didn't go through 6 months of beta testing like the Digital Revenge, so no news is good news! Seems to be working properly for all. I have other features that are being added like a widget launcher, and an easier way to add icons to the trays... but those are for later days.

One question though: How do you change color? I can't seem to get the changer to work.
Comment #9 Saturday, August 20, 2005 6:53 AM
There is no color changer, as there is barely zero color in this theme.

In 1024/768 mode the side bar extends down to where the bottom tab is overlaying the bottom bar. It does it slightly so at the resololution of 1152/864 There is plenty of room at the top to move it up and clear the bottom bar.

Just wanted to make you aware. Great job otherwise.

CoachDoug1, Yeah, I know it does that. But I'd have to script especially for resolutions less than 1280x1024, and I don't know if I'm that ambitious. lol

One of the most useful themes out there for DesktopX. It may not be very fancy overall, but those who are too overly fancy usually aren't very useful for everyday use. I was wondering though if it were possible to make the taskbar appear at the top. I'm sure it can, just requires some recoding.
I abhor having the taskbar at the bottom I believe it to be extremely inefficient since nearly all programs have menus and toolbars at the top of the screen, so that is generally where the mouse is located. Although I rarely click on the taskbar itself, I use key commands, I find it also more pleasing to the eye for the taskbar to be up top.
Anyhow I guess you didn't need that explaination lol, just I find many interesting themes created, but the doggone taskbar is always at the bottom! However I seem to be in the minority here, or its just that many are too used to the built-in way to try something different.
Excellent DX theme overall though

I like theme. I find that most don't last more than a week but this one looks very functional.

A few questions though:
The top elements of the Customizer are movable. Is that by design?
The default hide object key [F10] only hides some objects (it leaves teh clock and the date/meteres. Is that by design?

Thanks for teh oppertunity to use the theme!
Comment #14 Monday, August 22, 2005 11:46 AM

The whole customizer panel should be moveable, but the individual object should not be. I will look at that later.

The Hide key only hids objects on the Normal level, not the Desktop Level. The objects in question exist on the Desktop level by design. I could put a hide button somewhere in the next release.

Wonderful! Congrats! Do you have a link to the wallpaper?
Comment #16 Wednesday, August 24, 2005 11:00 PM
im havin sum problems with it. the taskbar icons on the bottom right dont show up. and r there any controls on the bar on tha left of the screen. i want to make it so its always there instead of auto-hide. is there a way i can do that?
Comment #17 Thursday, August 25, 2005 2:21 AM
Sventekoz, the wallpaper is everwhere, so I don't remember where I got it from.

ShaniAbid, are you meaning the Systray icons? It may just simply be that you have not restarted your computer since DesktopX was installed. And allowing the sidebar tabs to always show may be a feature in an additional version.
Comment #18 Thursday, August 25, 2005 3:17 PM
Very nicely done! And about the wall, I can't seem to find it anymore... mind giving us a link or a name to run in google?

Comment #19 Thursday, August 25, 2005 8:56 PM
yea tha systray icons. and ive restarted it since i installed desktopX but not since i installed the theme. and is the sidebar on the left supposed to come up wen ur mouse goes there cuz i have to double click on the side for it to come up
Comment #20 Friday, August 26, 2005 8:39 AM
I'm having trouble with the sidebar getting cut-off about half way through the Audio shelf. I did everything as explained and that is the only thing that isn't working but seeing as it cuts off 2 and a half trays it makes it a little tough to use.. Any ideas?

UPDATE: I tried again this time setting the resolution to 1280X1024, loading and then changing to 1600X1200 and everything seems to be fine. One thing though, would it be possible to make the side bar customizable as far as the number of trays to show? I don't need all of these trays but it would be kewl to be able to use just a few of them.
