Windows 7 skin (WIP) 5 Years, 1 Month ago  
first skin. about half done. i want to try to add a to-do list below the events list, but i'm not sure if it's possible to have two scaled background images in the same window?

working on tiny icons now, i'll use those instead of the colored boxes for events.

critique is encouraged!

also, how can i add more space between the icon and the event in the event list?

Nice skin Under linux too. But when it is for linux user too, you must use small letters for all icons in the folder icon and use small letters for the folder icons. Or you must change your skin.xml

Also I have change the size of the font. From 11 to 9. So I can read more informations in Events and Tasks.

Is it possible to create more then one calendar? I need Chromophore and I have 2 calendars (actually month and the follow month)

thanks for the compliment! it's my first skin, and i'm really struggling with it, but it's fun at the same time. i love skinning stuff

so all that stuff about small letters - do you mean filenames in linux are case sensitive, and the case of the filename should match the case of the xml? if so, then sure, i can fix that easy enough.

i have also considered decreasing the font size. in fact, i think the whole thing is too big, but the thought of shrinking the graphics and adjusting the whole skin is a bit daunting. oh, if only Rainlendar had a skinning engine like CD Art Display

i have no idea what Chromophore means, but i'll consider adding a 2-calendar version. i was also thinking about just a calendar with a toggleable events/tasks list. but i'm a bit burned out on this now, so i'll come back to it in a few days.

thanks for the feedback, much appreciated!
