Thanks, you've been a big help. I'll just live with the white, its not that big of an issue. I think I have everything else set now, here's what you've helped me create. Simple, dark and functional, I appreciate the assistance!

That is looking very good, I'm still willing to make that change for you it would only take less than a minute all you need to do is zip up the theme .msstyles and post it here and in probably 1 min. I'll post it back here with the change.

Alrighty then, if you're so willing. I do appreciate it. You mentioned it would mess the image numbers up, is that a guarantee? I've saved backups of everything so its no big deal, but I'm just curious in case I go to touch something up later. Thanks much

Here you go, switch to a different theme logoff/logon then replace the .msstyles.

Yes WSB changes the #s, the .msstyles uses the same # image in different places and WSB makes it 1 image for each place.
Is it to dark? If so I can change it.

Its actually perfect save for 1 thing, now I see that the details text is extremely light with this background. I'll attach a screenshot. I just went through all the font settings and nothing seems to change it, is this possible with a simple fix? Sorry to keep bothering you with questions.

I can fix that in just a few seconds with Windows style builder, it allows you to change text colors really easy in most areas.

Would you like that in black?

Hi Guys, First of all I apologize for hijacking this thread but it relates to a problem I have so I thought I would post here instead of starting a new thread.

I have made my theme using Avi's Style Builder and seem to have lost the border round the Capacity meter bar.
Does anyone of you know how I can get it back please.

Try the image at Buttons, Boxes & Controls > Progress Bars > Normal > TransparentBar > <2>

Please next time you start a new thread that way there's less confusion.
