Forums -> UltraMon™ -> Width Taskbar Buttons

When I use widht-taskbar buttons for the task, it only affect the primary monitor ( where the real taskbar is set ).

On the Smarttaskbar the Taksbuttons are cut to the normal width.

for example:

My taskbar-button widht is 60px
Smart taskbar-button widht is 40px and the icon which is centered hangs in the air.

screenshot of the problem.

After I reboot the buttons should also work for a few minutes but then - it looks cutted =)

Thx for help and for the great program !

Where did you configure this? I'm not familiar with this setting.

Its called "Iconized" Taskbar

The Buttons width is set here:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics]

"MinWidth"="56" [ REG_SZ ]

This works fine for me, I just tested with a custom minimum width recently. Are you using WindowBlinds, or a custom visual style?

I only use a custom style:

Its called "windows 7 pdc style"

in the guide for the style the minwidth must be set to 56 for the big taskbuttons.

and as I said: for a few minutes it also works for the smart taskbar, after I work something the taskbuttons get being ugly =)

I'll look into this for the next release.

Hello again,

still are any work arounds available ?

I'm not aware of a workaround for this, also haven't looked into the issue yet.

I'm having the EXACT same issue and it's driving me crazy. I am using a different visual style, but it's also based on 7, and I set my MinWidth to 54. The first icon appears fine, but the minute a second window opens on the monitor using UltraMon, the width of the taskbar icon narrows... Hope a workaround for this is found soon.

I've now looked into this, as a workaround set MinWidth to -840 instead of 56, this will fix the problem.

Thanks man - it works now! It's a little bit larger as the original buttons but it looks much more better then before
