A first Version of debugging lassekongo's Capriccio 7.

there are still many issues.

#######

I don't know why some have problems with this VS. On my PC everything is working fine.

So far I have only changed the png-Files inside the theme.

#######

Update:

I have found this link [link] , maybe this is the reason. Therefore I have resaved the VS and uploaded it.

I hope the theme works a lot better now!

any chance of making this work as an aero theme? I love it but I do like to have my hover windows on the taskbar...

I tried to do it myself and didnt get very far, not sure where to start.

To be honest with you I haven't updated the VS for a year or even longer and I am not going to change that, as my debugging skills are just so small. Which doesnt mean that I havent tried it myself to convert it to aero. However, the result is just not satisfying until you have the original ressources (PSD or Gimp file) and you change transparency there. I suggest you are looking for a similar minimalistic theme and change the important things yourself.

Ah okies, didnt figure you'd still be interested in this, but you gotta ask though. Never know, I might push myself to learn more about VSB and actually do it myself.

Thanks anyway.

Thanks so much for this! I have missed lassekongo's designs so much since I upgraded to Windows 7.

I got it anywhere here on DA. Type "Bar Rafaeli" in Searchbar. Maybe you get it.

I can't use this theme, it's not crashing in my machine but it's not loading well.

When I try to load it Windows falls back to basic instead of staying with the Aero interface. The look and feel it produces depends on the previous theme which was installed. For example, if the previous theme was dark, the look seems dark.

This one is a screenshot of it having the default Windows 7 theme before it: [link]

I've had no issues with other themes, I'm using a patched 32-bit OS.

Select one of the other Visual Styles you have installed and then reselect Capriccio. This is what I am doing if Themes are not applyed.

Thank you very much! It works now, everything's applied.

I have some constructive critique though, things that in my humble opinion would make the VS better:

1. You can't recognize a priori if a pinned app is opened or not if it has only one instance opened and is not selected. If it has several instances opened it looks strange only the frame in the right. A square as the border of an open app would look much better.

2. The shutdown button in the start menu is quite big, a less high one would look better.

3. A top taskbar style would be awesome, removing the user image or putting it down to reduce the space between the taskbar and the start menu itself.

There is something Firefox related with this VS. I've seen other VSs enlarge the firefox icons (the ones beside the direction bar), but it's the first time I see the context menu enlarged, it's like if there was space enough for 3 icons in the left side. Could that be fixed without breaking the theme L&F?

Screenshot: [link]

Kind regards,
Kao.

P.S.: I love the drive space indicators bar coulours!!!

Thanks a lot for the bug report.

I already know about the firefox menu problem, but I have no idea how to solve that.

Another thing, in my opinion you should get rid of the default blue wherever it appears: [link]

having a application with various windows/tabs in the taskbar in icon only mode looks kind of buggy, apart from that, its a quite nice port, i mean, there is not much you can do wrong, as long as your using lassekongo's work as base
Voynich-Manuscript's avatar
Please show me a screenshot, because I don't understand what you are talking about.

Btw: I have never tried to present this VS as my work, I am only debugging it as far as my very little Vista Style Builder skills allow it. When I come to a point, where I don't know how to go on, I won't continue to debug it. As a result there's always the possibility that the VS will never be a Final

Gefällt mir.

Thank you, but the design itself is not my idea.

Danke, aber das Design an sich ist nicht meine Idee.


Credits go to lassekongo on DA
