So.... I really started missing domino (hence the dark borders
on windows) and I really wanted some aqua (news flash...).

So I wanted the mac like 1px mainwindow lines thingy... however,
in order to do that, I have to check what is around the frames,
which is megawonky... codewise I mean... looks slick as f**k but
is a mess codewise. As you can see on the bespin demonstration
window or whatever frames are full... but in the mainwindow you
only see the line drawn by separator.... oh well and then I had to
setup and overlay so the painting of the frames actually happens
on a widget that covers the whole frame...... oh well, who am I
kidding, nobody understands why aero is cool and nobody bothers
to read this anyways.... well I got it maclike, that's what I wanted.

I love the windows borders and the scrollbars, masterful.
I've read the description, but the only thing i understood is
".... well I got it maclike, that's what I wanted." :P

Well nice work Rob and from what you wrote the end result was what you wanted even though your code as you stated is a mess. As long as it is functional for you and works without issue then the code being a mess is worth it then! ;-)

i donīt buy apple products (even the fruits ;) ) but i donīt hate them. why should i do that? :D

Th3R0b Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2012
Well... I don't know where to start but
if you knew every dirty detail about how
the apple products come to life for example
you wouldn't even ask. Not to talk about
licensing... apple products possibly has the
strictest copyright/licensing policy there
is. However, they have hired very talented
designers ;-) I'll givem that

well, i know this about apple :D but i donīt hate them anyway. I do not care about apple, i donīt buy their products.
And a lot of their designs are copies :)

I'm however not 100% convinced yet but you

How a wrote a while ago: good -> better -> Th3R0b
I like it because it's different. Because it combines things that no one else combined so far.
What I dislike are the window buttons... somwhow that do not fit. (only my opinion). :)

Hahaha :D thx! however, I'm mostly experimenting
and don't usually polish the look so it looks
like an artsy-fartsy screenshot some "customisers"
do :) I simply write some code until I have it
like I want it... then just post a quick shot here :D

As you mentioned with the titelbuttons, they are just
a quick clone of the other buttons you see :) ...with
aqua colors ofc ;-)

LaGaDesk Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2012  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Maybe that's what I like. You're experimenting...
and it looks better than all these screenshots where
all people thinking: Man, that's cool. ;)

The buttons... are not nice Robert! hahah

Th3R0b Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2012
Well thank you, this time however, it's
more like a experiment: can I has mac
like frames behaviour? ;-)

Yeah but they are nice enough so I don't
have to re-paint them... maybe for my
next aqua scrot I just trow a one-liner
and use pixmaps I steal for a mac scrot ;-)

That would definitely be the easiest way.

You know I like to use pixmaps. hehe
I'm waiting for your next scrot.

For BE::Shell currently I try to use
the meters without background pixmaps: [link]

:iconth3r0b:
Th3R0b Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012
Hehe, that's nice to hear...
...well pixmaps are static...
means I can not set the colors
in a sane way without altering
the pixmaps... or change shape
for that matter. However, if
you want a 1-1 clone of smth,
it's the definitive easiest
to go about.

Very nice! I see you have gotten
the hang of how to work with qss.

LaGaDesk Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Sometimes there is no other way,
pixmaps or an ugly result.

Yeah, I like that qss theming. :)
It looks not so good as with bg-image so far
but much better as in my first try I think.

pixmaps should always be a last resort...
...it's ugly and slow. Might looks best
but should be avoided.
