I’d like to replicate the visual appearance of the Windows Update screen, ie: the menu/options bar down the left hand side with the background that follows the mouse, any suggestions how to achieve this in code (without buying a third party product) ?
In some instances, the menu options down the LHS have two line text, the top line being bigger than the bottom, achieving that as well would be a bonus.
I’ve tried flat buttons with icons but they’re not quite right.
Yes, I want to improve my user interface, C10/11 is a bit behind, C12 promises more when it comes but I (not me personally, my apps) need a facelift relatively quickly.
When you say “Training”, are you referring to ClarionLive?
In my picture button class from the 90s, I think I used an ENTRY control outside of the window dimensions so that I’d have something to take focus, then did a DrawFocusRect on the “actual” control. I also alerted a few keys, such as the spacebar. Not exactly elegant, but it solved that problem.
