Windows 7: Looking to Know where some theme data is stored

Looking to Know where some theme data is stored

I am trying to make a program to change the look of windows but I can not find where the data that controls the glass colour settings is stored.

These settings


I would be looking for a RGB(255,255,255)/#(#FFFFFF) or something like this (I assume that it is not like this or I would've found it, or it may just have been that I wasn't looking hard enough).

If anyone knows where this data is stored some help would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Welcome to the Seven Forums

To add a little bit more information to what UsernameIssues posted look at the .theme file by right clicking on it and open it with notepad then look under [Control Panel\Colors] there you will find a list of items with the color code after each item.

This information only shows up after you have made changes to the original theme and then saved it as a theme.

That's why i couldn't find it.

I hadn't made any changes or saved it.

Is this what I should be looking at!!

[VisualStyles]
Path=%SystemRoot%\resources\themes\Aero\Aero.msstyles
ColorStyle=NormalColor
Size=NormalSize
ColorizationColor=0XD9000000
Transparency=0
Composition=1
VisualStyleVersion=10


It doesn't make much sense to me, I changed all of the above settings and BUPKIS!! nothing changed, but when I change the glass colour save the theme in Control Panel they change.
