Real Vista Aero Glass - Four functions

Recommended Posts

This is nice as far as it goes.

My bad. I didn't set PixelCoordMode option. That works for filling in background color. The white text seems a bit smudgy but at least it's a way to do it without user intervention.

edit: seems to look nearly perfect when popping up over a dark background such as a fractal flame wallpaper. But even coming up over a maximized browser blank page it's legible. Not as perfect as setting manually but acceptable.

Instead of setting the background color for each problematic control such as Radio Button, I just sample a pixel after the window pops up, and set the glass background color for the gui.

This way seems to avoid the color mismatch patches.

I haven't set my system to something outrageous like bright red to try it. But I think it will work for most desktop settings.

Jame (or who ever), I'm hoping someone can help. I'm starting to get pretty desperate. I just tried a very popular au3 based off of Vista Aero Glass 4 function.

There is a very strange issue with it on my Windows machine. Instead of my Windows command prompt looking like:

It looks like below:

It look correct at first, but usually something as simple as changing the Windows transparency tint color or color settings "Under the Personalize window color", I see these strange transparent border to appear that dont match the rest of the window. I was hoping someone much smarter than me could figure out a way to compensate for this strange circumstance.

Below is the location for the au3:

Thanks so much in advance!
