Aero Theme and Caption Bar

Postby Sheri_Steeves » Wed Jun 24, 2020 3:18 pm

I'm using the Aero dialog theme and it looked great until I tested on a system where the Windows Settings for Personalization -> Colors had the option to use the accent color on Title bars and Window borders checked.

Then, instead of the nice white area, the accent color is now drawn - making my icon and title text hard to read, not to mention, not what I want to see.

If this behaviour is turned off, I see the plain, white dialog I was expecting. I've used this theme for quite a while now and have just noticed this.

Is there a way to change this my dialog template to prevent this?

Unfortunately, there isn't so much you can do. This is an user setting which overrides the color assigned to the Title Bar.

The only possible alternative, it's with assigning to ZERO the "GlassTop" property of the Glass Control.
