Hello, could somebody help me with this 2 problem : -

I tried to change PrograssBar [Buttons, Boxes, Controls> Progressbars> normal> fill] & TransparentBar [Buttons, Boxes, Controls> Progressbars> normal> transparentbar] to stripe pattern, but there was a problem. See the picture below.

Explorer & Shell > Explorer > Items View > ListView > ListItem > Hot

The ProgressBar is very tough to get right I would suggest going here Concept Design Windows 7 Theme and download Mr Grimm's Concept theme and study what he did, look in both areas
Buttons, Boxes & Controls > Progress Bars > Indeterminate
and
Buttons, Boxes & Controls > Progress Bars > Normal

Thank you, I appreciate your help Now everything is running smoothly.

For my 1st problem, I follow like what you said [study theme from mr Grim], and I was able to solve my problem.

What I to do is, change the size of the original 'Progress Bar' and 'TransparentBar'
to [2560 W x 18 H in pixel], and then change 'STRECH' to 'TRUESIZE' in the 'SIZINGTYPE:ENUM' column.


and For my 2nd problem, I found the place to change the 'highlight' is on: -
Explorer & Shell> Explorer> ItemView> ItemView> ListItemNotFocus

Here the result : -

Highlight text
I am working in Microsoft Word and throughout different documents when I highlight text from time to time it will all get deselected and I have to reselect it again.

changing highlight
When I right click on a desktop a drop down list comes up. Is there a way to change the highlighting that when I move my mouse on there? Also on the top of the window where it has File, Edit, etc. when I move mouse there it goes black. Can I change that too? On windows 98 you can change it.
