TC 7.0: progress bars

Post by *map » 2006-11-01, 10:45 UTC

I am very disappointed with new look of progress bars (when copying, deleting etc.) introduced in version 7.0. They are now looking like in Explorer or other crap. I hate square-progress bars, this was one of the things I liked on TC, it didn't contain it. I think smooth progress bars are much better and more informative.

Is there please any option to switch to previous look of progress bars?

The new progress bars in v7 looks very fresh for me, but the option to switch to previous look sounds interesting...

Mal angenommen, du drückst Strg+F, wählst die FTP-Verbindung (mit gespeichertem Passwort), klickst aber nicht auf Verbinden, sondern fällst tot um.

Super. Back to good looking old style. I am a little bit conservative, I know :)
Thank you very much.

But there could be an GUI option in TC option window.

yes, the squared progress bars looks like crap. Thanks to Ghisler for "Oldstyleprogress" :)

The style of the new progress bar depends on the theme used.

Well that's really personal taste. I'm changing my theme from to time but haven't found a theme that is really well designed.

[OT] B0se has some very good and usable themes on DeviantArt, like OpusOS and CodeOpus.

Well I know and they are not too ugly but a bit too conservative imho no (theme background). In addition there is the problem that selected text is almost unreadable in almost all those themes.

How do you do that :? I'm not referring to the desktop background but to the background which is used for example in the buttonbar and menu.

Just imagine how black text looks sorrounded by a dark blue selection. This applies for example to bOseClass.

Oops, stop here, I'm talking about normal c:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes\, not windowblinds or other themes.
