On PsycoB's latest style he noted in the description how to center the icons on a 22px taskbar through hex. Luckily, I did that manually before I saved it in VSB. I'm not sure what it adjusts or how to translate it in VSB.

As far as the text shift on the taskbar, it only becomes off center on the active/pressed button. I'm guessing it's hardcoded because I don't think anyone ever figured it out in XP either.

I'm on it. Booting into Vista to trace it.

Yeah I tried to do it on the VS I'm working on right now and I couldn't find it.  There was no 04 where it was supposed to be. :(

Couldn't find it. I tried tracing it with his style and so much was different, I didn't know what was going on. I tried to do it manually but each time I did it the theme became corrupt Huh?

thats bad news :/
well i bet i can do it in VSB? only thing u need to know is how..


and again.. the explorer background image? is it possible?
ive heard someone told me u could do it trhough the shellstyle and in VSB i found a backrgound option in expolrer & shell>shell>previewpanecontrol and there is background options in the sub cats, but dunno if that has to do with the backrgounds in explorer? i know ave has an application to add backrgound images, but i dont think u can add on that follows the explorer window

the hex address used by PsycoB to center the tray icons corresponds to Taskbar & Tray Notify > Taskbar > Basic > TaskBar in VSB. Reduce the value of the HEIGHT property to move the tray icons up

...

Yes, you can do it via shellstyle. In shellstyle's UIFile you can find styles for ech type of maps (document, photo, music, etc.) You should edit <if id="atom(listview)"> or <if id="atom(clientviewhost)"> sections (sorry, I don't remember exactly) and the background property should call the dtb(resbmp(...)) functionpair. You should add the desired images as new resource to the dll and with dtb()
you can load them.

If you define separate images for ech map types then they will load dynamically navigating between maps and user can recognize what type of map is opened currently.

It'd be better to use dtb() and link it to the MSStyles that way you can use sizing margins. In other words, yes it's possible.
