I am working on a windows 7 theme and have certain issues and doubts.If someone could give me some clues and insight in to how aero works would be really great
1.Drop shadow in Start menu
The image i made for start menu has a drop shadow of about 3 pixels which is not coming as it should be in windows style builder
I have done some research and the result is the image does not have any problem........it works fine in one of the themes called Mac 7 Mac 7 Theme
there has to be a setting that makes it work related to transparency in images or shadow fill etc
Here are the two images that show the difference
2.How to make a theme that changes color when hue is changed from Personalization
How does Aero work ??? what do i need to create for the color system to work
There is one more issue here , I normally turn off the transparency as I like the solid colorfill.But when transparency is turned off all the smooth drop shadows around windows and start menu turn into ugly borders.
3.When i make a Semi transparent image for start menu this how it turns out to be in the theme.What is that dark color coming below the program list??
