Windows 7: Windows 7 RocketDock Skin

Windows 7 RocketDock Skin

Hey guys. Working on a Windows 7 theme for a Rocketdock skin.

Tell me what you think so far.

The bottom is the same as the top, it's just hiding. (The border and all is what I'm talking about)

And if you don't know what you're looking at, it's the Dock station at the bottom of the image. See the theme?


But ya, any suggestions/ideas?

Oh, and ya, forgot about the separators. Not sure what I should do for them. I'll come up with something I hope. If you have an idea for them. Share.

Looks great Hybrid. I like this application and have used it for a couple of years now.
Could the seperators be similar to the border perhaps?
I like your recycle icon, where did you get it?

Nice work, John

Yes except that bar is actually a light shade of blue on top and a darker shade on bottom. I was kind of expecting a glass dock but it still looks good.

It's a pretty good effort, what do you think of this one I made?

that looks awesome, hybrid. it's almost reason enough for me to start using a dock again! too bad rocketdock doesn't support aero blur

you might consider adding the little white details along the sides that aero window frames have to make it a bit more authentic. might boost the shadow depth a bit too, make it more like an active window...

it matches my skin for CD Art Display perfectly! i cheated with mine though, i made it straight from a screenshot of a true aero window

About the blue shade on the border. When I get home, I'll probably make it grey. Thanks for the suggestion.

I'm still working on some other styles for it too. I'll keep ya posted.

Try this method to get aero blur i bet it would work.

I find RD to be pointless, since W7 pretty much already has one.
