Custom logon screen

Yeah i know its possible to change the backround on windows 7 logon, but is there any way to move the display picture and the password blank to a different place on the logon screen? possiblty a registry key edit?

This worked for Vista but i haven't tried it for w7 yet

here are just few simple basic tricks for customizing logon in vista

open Authui.dll


changing text colors:
go to
UIFILE > 11000

User Name : Line 451
Status Text: Line 466
Connect Message: Line 60
Switch User Button: Line 187


line it shoud look like this: foreground = "white"
you can replace "white" with name of the color or
you use this: argb(0,0,0,0) insted of color name.
What "argb" means: a=Alpha (i think), r=Red g=Green b=Blue
Values must be in " " <-- i dont know how is this called :]


user list:
go to
UIFILE > 11000
line 112

Changing height:
line it shoud look like this:
Code:
<element resid="UserListTemplate" height="475rp" sheet="UsersStyle" layoutpos="client" layout="filllayout()">
here you can change hight of user list
value for hight looks like this:

Code:
height="475rp"
just change 475 with size you want

Chnge width:
line it shoud look like this:

Code:
<element resid="UserListTemplate" height="475" sheet="UsersStyle" layoutpos="client" layout="filllayout()">
now replace line 112 with this:

Code:
<element resid="UserListTemplate" width="480rp" height="190rp" sheet="UsersStyle" layoutpos="client" layout="filllayout()">
i just added Width="480rp" value before height, yes is that simple
now you can change width of user list
value for hight looks like this:

Code:
width="480rp"
just change 480 with size you want

Note:
changing size of user list will also affect password entering page!!!
i recomend minimum width and height of 330rp


Status animation:
go to
UIFILE > 11000
line 75

change size:
modify

Code:
width="20rp" height="20rp"
if you dont want to have animation change "20rp" to 0rp on both hight and width


size of User picture on entering password page

1.
change size of overlay:
go to
line 570 and 571

lines shoud look like this

Code:
width = "190rp"
height = "190rp"
change 190rp with size you want


2.
change margins:
go to line 584
line shoud look like this

Code:
padding="rect(32rp, 32rp, 32rp, 32rp)"
how margins work Left, Top, Right, Bottom

change 32rp

3.
change size of user picture
go to
line 654 and 655

lines shoud look like this

Code:
width = "126rp"
height = "126rp"
change 126rp with size you want

Note:
You will also need to change size of picture overlay (Bitmap 11142) image !!!

Password:

1.
change size of Submit Button:
go to
line 110
line shoud look like this

Code:
<Button id="atom(Submit)" width="30rp" height="30rp" accessible="true" accrole="43" layout="flowlayout(0,2,0,2)" class = "SubmitButton"/>
change 30rp in width="30rp"and height="30rp" to size you want

2.
Change how far is submit button from password field:
go to
line 746
line shoud look like this
Code:
margin = "rect(4rp, 0rp, 0rp, 0rp)"
how margins work Left, Top, Right, Bottom

3.
Password entering field:
Lines:
708: width of password field image
709: height of password field image
711: margins of password field image (margin = "rect(Left, Top, Right, Bottom)")
712: defines margins where the password entering field will be based on background
image of password field (borderthickness = "rect(Left, Top, Right, Bottom)")


User list scroll bar:

enable bitmap 11115:

what is bitmap 11115:
Bitmap 11115 is overlay of user list scroll bar (if you look on left side of your screen you will se 3 vertical lines on scroll bar)
this is how to enabe this overlay

go to line:
849 and 850 and make new line betwen these two lines so that line 850 will be 851
now you have one empty line add this to that line

Code:
content = "resbmp(11115,2,-1,0,0,1,1)"

1st Note:
By default this image is black so if you didnt edited this image you will have black square on scroll bar!!!
2nd Note:
After adding this will be you have to add +1 to all lines that are mentoned here and are after line 851!!!



Disable Branding Picture (picture that says "Windows Vista ****" at the bottom of the screen)

go to
line 83
line shoud look like this

Code:
<element id="atom(Branding)"/>
replace this line with this

Code:
<element id="atom(Branding)" layoutpos="none"/>
Here is an example of longhorn reloaded logon.
