..:: FINALLY !!! I did it ! ::..
« on: January 05, 2004, 05:56:37 PM »
FINALLY !!!  :D

I finally did it !!!  ;D ;) ;D

Skin is completed and what's best, it's working...
No errors so far, everything is like it should be.  8)

Vlk, I just have two issues/questions:  ???

1. Those little "clouds" (tool tips) that hovers when we leave a mouse pointer few seconds above the buttons... They are quite OK even with this skin, but I tried to change color and give them some more transparency... For God's sake, I couldn't find any option in SkinBuilder... is there any chance I can fix that too ?

2. If we press "RESIDENT SCANNER" button, we can see small animation... little "cloud" with DISABLED/STANDARD/HIGH/CUSTOM options comes to screen. Is there a way to change that little cloud's direction (path) and the way how it should appear on the screen ? For this skin, all those things looks good, but I'm wondering, what is going to happen if I make some skin (in future) with different button's array...

Let me know, what's the best way to send you this skin (It's called SZCraftec_G5), please...

Regards !  :)

Check out the Tooltip_Colors subobject of aswSimple. Edit it's TextStyle - 'Text Color' stands for the color of the text, 'Effect color' is the color of the background. The transparency can be set by changing the BackColor alpha channel of that object, too.

Similar thing is the ListCtrl_Colors object which defines the colors of the list control headers (in dialog boxes) - such as in the skin chooser dialog.

This is slightly more complicated. See the resident_wnd subobject and the animations defined for this object (right-hand side pane)...

No problem Ondrej... and... thanks for all those useful tips regarding color change... I found it after you helped me with information. Everything is clear now.

Damn... I told you guys... you don't know anything else, but helping people  ;D

A WAY TO GO ALWIL SOFTWARE !!!

I'll send my skin to your e-mail in about half hour... I just wanna try something else... check it, test it and if you think it deserves to be published, put it at your wonderful Avast web site among all those great skins... OH, I'll be so proud, you don't have a clue...

All right folks, I think the new G5 skin is really very pretty (particularly given its Craftec's first skin ever).

I packed it to the distribution format so before it goes official, you have a look at it by clicking here: http://cat.asw.cz/~vlk/G5_by_SZCraftec.aswcs

Thanks!

Thanks Vlk... I don't know what to say, probably I shouldn't say anything except THANKS AGAIN to complete Alwil Software team. I've never seen a group of programmers that is so available to their customers or in my case, users... BTW, how much I have to pay for Avast! Proffessional Version (the one that is not free) and how can I get it ? I'm planning to buy it in near future, 'cause you guys really deserve every single cent...

BTW, when I change that classic windows form look in my skin version and I send it to you, is it gonna be available for download on your web site under download skins section ?

Thanks again everybody !!!  ;)

Cheers !

Love you all !

ok guys and girls,

I created all avast! skins. So what can I do for your easier insight how to create avast! skin?

I could place one of the skin in PSD file on the web. You will able to download it and look inside this PSD files, where you will find everything what is need for create avast! skin. Then if you don't know how work with ActiveSkin, you can send me your PSD file and I finished it in ActiveSkin.

The last possibility is, that I create short document "How to create skin in ActiveSkin"

great work Sasha ;)

maybe it will be better if you create frame.tga in color like as your skin. Try in Photoshop decrease Saturation value. I can't do that, because I would change your help, close and minimize button. It's only opinion.

So we create new page for your skins .... i hope, that it won't be Sasha's page only;D

Great skin!

Suggestion (I know it could bring a lot of work!): the format of the buttons could be intuitive, I mean, a triangle for the 'play' or start button. In other languages than English, the skin won't be translated.

Hey, thanks!  I'm gonna use it.  A step up for me from the low res skin I have been using.  "One small step for man.  One giant leap for mankind." ;D

And a wave broke over the railing
And every man knew, as the Captain did, too,
