I have put in a little bit of work creating a smooth and clean windows 8 style button.
It was very simple to put together, but I am sure some may like having to not make one.
if anyone can post a link to a better metro theme than the one that comes with classic shell ( say... a pack of every color to go with the default windows 8 colors) it would save me some trouble :P
here is what it could look like https://dl.dropbox.com/u/19143385/desktopsample.jpg, if you take the time to match colors (my button is compatible with all 16+ million colors you can make your task bar, the metro theme from classic shell is not)
I think I need to create a special forum for user-created skins and buttons. I will look into that over the weekend.
it is always nice to have a hub to share content for such a great open source project.
Btw, the Windows 8 logo should SLIGHTLY animate. That would be an authentic logo. Press Win+C repeatedly and observe how the Windows 8 logo in the Charms slightly changes its angle.
Never noticed this, I will have to turn animations back on to see this.
I see it now. yet I am not sure I can replicate this, the button can only have 3 states. inactive, hover, pressed.
this is a very inconstant animation, It appears only when using win+C, not charms gestures.
Good job Pastor, I'm using your button if you don't mind! :)
Simple and clean, thank you Pastor.
