[Edit] Updated the Calc so that you can now Right click on the output line and Copy/Paste to it.
[/Edit]

So I took one of my original apps back from when i was learning vb6, and i added in the "aero" routine.

Sadly enough, the text on the buttons is also Aero, because in vb6 you cant change a button's forecolor.

not to big of a drawback though.

I may end up making a collection of Aero Acessories, and bundle them together as one download.

I think a notepad, this, the aerocommand, and an aero run prompt.

Check out this for an example of what can be done with AERO. It's an AERO Notepad. This is C++ I think, but requires .NET Framework to be installed.

If your AERO calc has scientific mode I'll use it everyday!

lol, i would have to re-write it form scratch, i dont think i have the source code any more.

Are you going to recode it with new features? (Like a Windows 7 look)

no. i dont have the source any more.

I tried using the DwmExtendFrameIntoClientArea API to glass the default calculator (I got the hWND with FindWindow API) but the same problem occurs - text transparency!

The API is like Vista (buggy OS and buggy API). Hope they will fix it in Windows 8!

i was told to use a WPF form and the black text would not be a problem any more. I never tried it, but i just thought i would pass the information along to you.

Actually, I was the person who told you if you remember.

Kishan-Bagaria's avatar
Does XP has aero glass ? No, so it doesn't work with it.

__Technology they're ways to get Aero to work in xp, but it's way to complicated to explain and I myself have never got it working properly (have messed up my os a few times though, that could also been because of the unstableness of how/what xp I install when i tired... ). *wonders* mmmm anyways google is your friend owo
