Windows 7: Looking for taskbar resource in msstyle

Looking for taskbar resource in msstyle

Good very hello!
I am new to theming and have been editing msstyle with restorator.

I have a style here I have been practicing on and am stumped right now. I have been able to change the taskbar for non-aero part of theme and would like to be able to apply the same red graduated png file for when the theme is aero enabled.



When the taskbar buttons are "always combined, hide labels" just the left side at start button has the red png but when I combine the buttons, the task bar in the center changes to transparent. I would like very kindly to know what png I need to edit so the center will also have the red png applied to it with no transparency applied when aero is enabled.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! )

Thank you for your reply but unfortunately for this msstyle,
841 = Places list seperator
845 = loggoff
1028 = command module background
1010 = tooltip

I look at your post again & seen the link after looking at it try
929 925 1174 1176 these are for just the bottom taskbar

It will still not work the maker of that did not add sizingmargins to it they changed the size of the image so it needs them

Here is a link to a theme I made jryprt's deviantART gallery download it & play around if you do ask & I will tell you the #
It has the sizingmargins added

ok now I am really confused. Is what I want to accomplish is this, when in aero, have the taskbar only opaque like the red taskbar resources when the Uxsms service is stopped or in basic mode. The one you posted in black, I downloaded and replaced the black taskbar with my red pngs and still when I select "Always combine, hide labels", the taskbar in the center becomes transparent in aero. So, I'll bite. What are the numbers? It essentially does the same thing as the 2 example pics I posted originally

I am sorry I gave you the wrong link that theme did not have sizingmargins added
Use this theme I checked it & it will work WoodWorks7 by ~jryprt on deviantART

The # for the bottom taskbar are 926 922 1172 1174

Thank you very kindly Bongo ... there is a problem with that woodworks7 where when uxsms is stopped and when explorer is restarted, the center taskbar turns black.

Six9six .. Thank you for your input but I am not working on a basic theme but want the aero when uxsms service stoped (turns into basic) for the theme to have continuity but it is the aero part that is troublesome as I want the taskbar to be opaque with the png whether with DWM enabled or disabled.


(Just for the record, a lot of styles I try are buggy when uxsms service is stopped with text bleeding through the taskbars from mouseover tips or start menu being opened.)
