Can you tell me, please, how to do that ? With Gimp - gradient i couldn't make it look like in the image.
I wish i could replace the original part with WSB, but i can't find one for Windows 7

Use your original image and paste it (in the centre) onto a  transparent background that is the same height but maybe 16 px wider(this figure is a rough guess, you'll have to play around)

Okay, thanks guys.
offtopic: i opened this thread some time ago   http://vistastylebuilder.com/forum/index.php?topic=1429.0
I wanted to make the taskbar tiny. After i asked here on the forum, i didn't find the solution. Ok, i still have it this height.
Today i found another osx msstyle on the internet. After i tested a bit i saw that the taskbar is very tiny, the way i wanted to have a few months ago.
I checked / changed all the values with the osx msstyle i use, and there is no way to have mine same liek the other one. Can you explain why, please?
Another question : i tried to modify / replace ( from the osx msstyle i found today on the internet, with my osx msstyle ) the Start Menu background. I modified all the values to be the same, but it's all messed up  Cheesy
Same story with the "right click - desktop menu"

For the taskbar try these settings for the content margins at  these locations-

contentmargin:margins  6, 6, 4, 4

Taskbar & System Tray > TaskBand > Basic > TaskBand > TaskItemButton

Taskbar & System Tray > TaskBand > Basic > TaskBand (SmallIcons) > TaskItemButton

see if this remains the same  size after reboot,if it does try   6, 6, 3, 3  etc....

Ok, thanks Dave.
As you can see in the picture, i could modify the minimized item, but not the taskbar hight.
http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/146/taskbarp.jpg/
I wanna make tiny this part where where the arrows are. Not only the minimized items on the taskbar.
Hmmm, how is that possible with the other os x msstyle ?

Those are the settings I use for a 24px high  taskbar.  I'm not sure what you're trying to do then  , I must be misunderstanding the question.

No, i'm not trying that.
Look, i have here 2 themes. The one "SL test" is mine, the other one i found it today on the internet. I like the tiny taskbar on that one, and i wonder why is that impossible to have the same taskbar like this theme.And, yes, it seems to be really impossible Smiley

Check for yourself, guys. Please.
Another link with both 2 themes, all the files Cheesy

Dave, you see the orange minimized item on the taskbar ? And on the right side, is a line, i made it. There is the hight of the taskbar.  Smiley
So, i wanna have this grey part of the taskbar, same hight / tiny like the orange one.
Just check those 2 themes i uploaded, and you'll see what i mean.

Look here, please : http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/691/likehere.jpg/   That's the way i wanna have it. The minimized item ( Mozilla - orange color ) has the same hight like the taskbar.

What is your problem? Here's your taskbar with Content Margins 10, 10, 4, 4:



Looks small to me. Probably won't stick on reboot though....

Dave Smiley I'll explain you step by step.
Look. You see the taskbar, here ??             http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/30/davezj.jpg/
Okay, now : do you see the orange colored minimized Mozilla on the taskbar ?? The taskbar color is grey ( something like grey ) okay ?
Is the hight of the orange minimized Mozilla, same like the grey one ??!!
I want to have this grey part, same like ( tiny ) the orange minimized Mozilla / color /
Please, check the other theme i uploaded, not the snow leopard test.

You need glasses or something. Here is a pic of taskbars from both themes side by side with same Content Margins of 10, 10, 4, 4 and as you can see they are exactly the same height:

Dave, but you know what's very odd, on all this ?
With the quick launch enabled, the other theme ( not Snow Leopard test ) is nice and tiny.Unexplainable.
That makes me "angry"

Now we understand the problem we can fix it quicker, maybe....

Change the content margins here to 0, 0, 0, 0   -

Taskbar & System Tray > TaskBar > Basic > ToolBar > Button

I have here a printscreen with 2 pictures.
The one is called "not my theme" and the other one is " my theme"
As you can see in the image, when i login on this forum, with the " not my theme" there is a blue color, marked.
When i use my theme, is not the same, only when i move the mouse over it.
Can you tell me, please, where this location is ?
PS : i still wonder why do i have a nice tiny taskbar with the other theme and quick launch enabled, and with my theme that's impossible ( if i disable quick launch, only )
