So I asked Ave if I could release these and he said sure. I don't want confusion to come from this, so if you create a help thread please state what XML version you're using. The current XML version is 1.4.1.

If you want to know the difference in these new updated XMLs go here: http://vistastylebuilder.com/forum/index.php?topic=950.0
It's not perfect but hopefully you'll understand.



To install toss the Win7 and Vista folder in \Vista Style Builder\Data\. Overwrite.

To install Base, extract the Base folder to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\




Info on Base:

Base is a modified Aero.msstyles that maps all the hardcoded values in shellstyle.dll into the msstyles. Base will be updated based on community input. Like if you know of a trick and have to add code, tell me and it may be included in future updates.


Also don't ask when WSB 1.6 will be avail, I don't know.



Updates:

Changes since 1.0.0:
• Added Static Class

Changes since 1.0.1:
• Barrier Page Background now mapped to: Shellstyle > Shellstyle:BarrierPage > bp_pane > Element
• Barrier Page Divider Line now mapped to: Shellstyle > Shellstyle:BarrierPage > bp_divider_line > Element

Changes since 1.0.2:
• Added text colors to CPL/CommandBar button states. (Thanks Dave Senior)

Changes since 1.0.3:
• Fixed typo causing the Reading Pane label to be broken

This is pretty cool, thanks for releasing them, with the base style, how exactly does that work, say for example I have a modified shellstyle.dll that has the navigation pane text colour added to it, how would I go about adding that in the msstyles properties now?

You would edit the code in the shellstyle to point to the property in the msstyles. For example a text color you would replace foreground="color" with foreground="gtc(Shellstyle:Custom, 1, 1, 3803)" then you would add TextColor:Color to Shellstyle > Shellstyle:Custom > <1> > <1>

Is there a way to import the properties from the Base style into an existing style?

I forgot to mention you'll have to export the CMAP from Base and import it into your theme, replacing the default CMAP. Or else the stylehack won't work.

Thanks I figured that out lol, any shellstyles you have modded with the extra properties would be good to  Smiley, I also noticed a post here http://www.joejoe.org/forum/topic/18726-directui-xml-notes-that-you-can-use/ from you and wondered if you still had the list of all the text colour properties, I wanted to change some in the shellstyle to use other properties but I have no idea what foreground properties relate to what, there was a link on that post but it is dead now.

Thanks in advance Smiley

The classmap. You'll see it if you open an msstyles file in a resource hacker.

Hello, I downloaded this and followed the instructions to put the folders where they are supposed to be. This was on a fresh installation of WSB, because I had not installed it yet since I did a fresh install of Win 7 the last time. However, when I launch WSB, on the bottom pane where the help is supposed to be, I get all this stuff with a pink background, which I remember wasn't there last time I used WSB about a year ago:

Writing /sites/vistastylebuilder.com/public_html/docs/data/cache/c/c92cb064456e5ca0c77ac82befb9ef8e.i failedUnable to save cache file. Hint: disk full; file permissions; safe_mode setting.Writing /sites/vistastylebuilder.com/public_html/docs/data/cache/c/c92cb064456e5ca0c77ac82befb9ef8e.i failedUnable to save cache file.

Could this be because of SP1? Or is it because of this replaced xmls?

I have trouble doing this however you can download the stylehack below.

Every time I want to download this file I get a message that I have to validate my account. Each time it is approved, but if I then try to download the file again, I have to validate my account again. How many times do I have to validate it??
With other files I have no problems.

I updated the archive to include the following:

• Base 1.0.3 MSStyles File
• Aero to Base 1.0.3 upgrade stylehack (Base.stylehack)      New!
• Base 1.0.2 to 1.0.3 upgrade stylehack
• Pre-extracted CMAP (CMAP.raw in the Base folder)
• WSB Data XMLs 1.6.5 for Windows 7 (Current)         New!

So now you don't have to download multiple archives.
