Hello, when using smart bar, the second window does not properly display the task name in the start bar correctly. In fact, it's hard to read what the window is when i minimize because the button in the taskbar is white with grey text. What it should be is blue with white text

Thanks for the bug report, please post a download link for the theme and I'll look into it.

Specifically i used the Blue theme
You may have to use either style XP or Windows Blinds to display the theme properly.

Unfortunately UltraMon has no special support for WindowBlinds skins, only custom visual styles (StyleXP) are supported.

See Help > Compatibility > WindowBlinds for more information on this.

I am currently using this skin with StyleXP. Windows Blinds isn't installed on this system

Do you have a link to the Visual Styles version? The link seems to be for the WindowBlinds version (.wba file).

There you go.

I have been able to reproduce the problem, if possible it will be fixed in the next release.

Good =)

another problem with skins:
Is the smart taskbar height fixed ??
Im under a mac skin (for stylexp), and there's 1 extra pixel in the height of the smart taskbar.

smart taskbar -> main monitor
real taskbar -> second monitor

Yes, i resized the taskbar to the minimum possible and locked it.

The height is calculated automatically. Please post a download link for the skin and I'll look into it.

BTW, the issue with TallyHawk mentioned above has been fixed in 2.4.

Maybe a little off-topic, but what is Visual Styles? I feel a little silly even asking this. I have used WindowBlinds for some time now (kinda miss support for it in UltaMon, but no biggie) and never heard of Visual Styles...

Just curious,

Visual styles is the skinning support in Windows XP and later, a tool such as Style XP is required to use third-party skins (by default you are limited to Microsoft skins/visual styles).
