Hi,
Code::Blocks rocks. It's the only best thing I could find that supports the free VC++ Toolkit. I tried the beta 7 release and was very impressed. Then I noticed the new beta final release and upgraded and I noticed the icon changed. :)

The problem is, it looks crappy in win2k(Alpha transparency problem. Win2K don't support Alpha transparency). I suspect most ppl here are using winXP so they don't notice this. Hope this can be fixed for the next release.

Keep up the good work devs! ;)

Hey... i got an idea. Maybe we can create a non-transparent icon and set the appropriate resource depending on whether we're using win2k or not. After all, we use the resources to load the icons, right?

Still about icons/buttons graphics - maybe someone could try to write a plugin for managing themes? :P

rickg22: yeah. that would work for the icon of the window. But it wouldn't work for the quicklaunch icon.

squizzz: Code::Blocks looks as good as it is now. IMHO, besides, this is a IDE for compiling stuff, why all the trouble to make it look fancy? I rather have a better working tool set than themes. :P

Sure, it's absolutely unnecessary stuff, but... geeez, there is such nice icon set (XP Theme*) in Dev-C++... It's actually the only thing (except great update module of course) that I miss after I switched to C::B :mrgreen:

* mistake, should be "New Look" theme =)

Well, tomorrow (time permitting) the devpak update/installer plugin will be added in CVS and soon it will be provided as an add-on ;)

Yiannis.
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

You mean the icons used in the TOOLBAR?

I meant whole "New Look" theme (screenshot) made by Gerard Caulfield - yup, toolbar & stuff (not the system icons). It looks cute, isn't it? :D

AFAIK the only thing changed in the theme were the menu background color and the icons in the menus / toolbars. Am I mistaken?

Yes, you are right, it affects only interface (toolbar/menus/compiler tabs/project tree) icons and background color. Nothing more.
