[new skin] avast! Vista GUI (aVist) completed...
« on: September 01, 2006, 01:56:34 AM »
Even though avast! doesn't work with latest Vista build (not Alwil's fault), I am sure Microsoft guys will fix that problem for the next Vista build...

Anyway, for all those on Windows XP, you can enjoy new Vista feel and look using our beloved avast! Yes, I had some time on my hands, and I wanted to see our antivirus in Vista-styled skin. It will be the first antivirus with Vista skin.

Still working on it, please be patient... I still have to compile all those graphical parts for Program Settings panels. Other than than, skin is pretty much ready and it's working great.

Interesting thing is... I created every single part of this skin in Windows Vista build 5536, and now checking it on Windows XP since avast! doesn't work with new Vista release.

When I'm done with this skin, I will contact, or at least I will try to contact Vlk... he's not answering my e-mails lately (probably too busy), but let's hope this skin will find its place inside avast! skins download section.

Oh yes... the name of this skin is aVist

I hope you all (or at least, most of you) will like it.

Cheers !

Here are some screenshots:

Old HELP button (rejected and changed... to see new version of Help button, take a look at few post below):



Local Disks scanning process:



Sliding panels and glowing Start button effect:



Glowing Minimize and Close buttons (Just like in real Vista OS):



Everything is exactly the same as in these screenshots except I switched positions of Removable Media and Folder Selection buttons.

Ok people... skin is officialy finished and compiled. All I need now is to hear from someone from Alwil. The reason is, I don't want to bug them sending this skin to everybody's e-mail (Alwil staff), simply because I don't know who is suppose to be my POC (Point of contact).

I would greatly appreciate if someone from Alwil can direct me... after that, I will send this skin installation file to whoever is willing to upload it to avast! skins download section.

Thanks in advance!
Sasha

Here is how settings windows look like:

Another small update... I changed appearance of HELP button. Now it's more noticeable, and IMHO it looks little better. Also, top buttons are better organized and aligned. Here is how new Help button looks like now:



Old Help button still can be seen on those first screenshots I posted inside initial post in this thread.

Cheers !

P.S. Still no word from Alwil... Maybe they don't like this skin, I don't know...  :-\ Hey guys, are you there ? It's I... Sasha... your friend, lol...  ;D  ;D  ;D

Yes, I can... no problems. It's just I can not do it right now, since I am leaving for a meeting with my client downtown. But if you tell me, what would you like to have as your avatar, I can try to please you when I am back around 3 PM (now it's 11:23 AM here in Toronto).

Cheers !
