How can I read the active window colour ?

There are two undocumented functions in dwmapi.dll - DwmpGetColorizationParameters and DwmpSetColorizationParameters. These can be used to read/write the correct values, because the public function DwmGetColorizationColor does not return the correct value.

If you read the active window colour, you could add an option to automatically set a lighter or darker shade of the same colour as a "one-click" alternative to self-selecting the colour.

How can I read the active window colour ?

(I'll add a checkbox for rounded corners.)

in the latest ver (1.2, with 0.7 beta1) the blure feature isnt working for me. ive tried, 0,5,200,255, all yielding the same ammount of blur. the only to get another value (through the program atleast) is to 'use direct 2d instead of 3d', which im guessing is because its unsupported by v 0.7 beta1, which results in no blur

In D2D and D3D different registry keys changes values of blur. I think in GUI it must be two of them for both modes.

Never noticed that there is a different registry key for blur in Direct3D mode.

Which registry key is the correct one for Direct3D mode ? I'll change the GUI to write the blur value in both of them.

Anyone know any good themes with rounded borders? I'm using the Snowy theme which is lovely, but I'd like to try a rounded one.

It was looking like using an inactive color wasn't working, although after I tested a few combinations my computer went blank, and then it started working of course haha.

There's nothing special to do with this except clicking OK.

I assume that bigmuscle intends to release the final version as a shareware and thus added "DEMO" messages in the beta to avoid releasing an almost stable version for free and encourage people buying the final version.

I disapprove but that's bigmuscle's software, he has the right to do what he wants with it and I'm tired of struggling with those nag dialogs, won't make further attempts to hide them before the final version of Aero Glass for Win8.

its a shame you cannot turn the popup box off - its a pain in the backside - one on startup is fine but he pushes it beyond funny - moaning really i know - its nothing to do with your software which is great - i have posted same on his thread but he just ignores all comments on it
