Post subject:  Shelf position error when taskbar is vertical

Hi, when taskbar is vertical, the shelf overlaps with it.

This is because programers set "Left=0" instead of "left=spiDektopArea"

Greetings!

Do you have the Shelf set to 'Respect space reserved by other docks, toolbars and screen objects' (Shelf Properties -> Position tab)?

Well, you were right, and I fixed it for the next release.

HOWEVER, I have a nagging feeling Windows at some point changed the way appbars were working and that is what caused the problem.

ABM_QUERYPOS should return an adjusted rectangle for an appbar, and that should include adjusted coordinates for ALL edges, not just the requested docking edge. Ah well.

Can you download the beta of v18.8 (if you haven't already) to confirm if it indeed fixed the appbar issue and then let me know here, please? :)

LOL. :)

It's a public beta. Just enable 'Notify me of beta (test) versions' in the Advanced tab of Preferences then check for updates.

Ok, about 18.8 release, now it respect ok the space reserved, and do not overlap.
But for some strange reason, it generates a space (or margin) on left/top/right of desktop (see image)

Ahah. That's theme related - it's because of the alpha shadows at the edges of the Shelf background bitmap. Try a different theme or a white desktop background and you will see what I mean.

The space at the top is for the same reason and also because you have the Shelf docked to the top but inverted (i.e.; tabs on top).

You were right Jorge!
Can you point me in the right direction to contribute with my own themes?

You should wait until I do some further work on the Winstep Theme Builder...

Dealing with text configuration files and figuring out what the parameters mean is not easy nor for everyone.

I'm not sure some of us can wait that long.

Neither do I - some of us may well pop our clogs before then! At any rate, it's been announced as on the current upgrade plan weeks ago and we're still waiting to even hear.... :P

:Singing: 'Why are we waiting, why-y-y are we waiting, oh why, oh why......' :Repeat: ;)
