Actually it should work well if we can find a rounded corner theme. It would be very cool to have that option in the tweaker if it is not a big hassle for you. Pls, pls, pls... :)

Also color picker for inactive windows... Pls, pls, pls... :)

Cheers.

Another one that might be worth trying...

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.

Yes that's exactly how it should look and how it would look if you tried using a theme with square corners in Windows 7, I don't mind square corners on themes but it would be good to have a choice and I can import the default Windows 7 theme with rounded corners as well no problem.

How can I read the active window colour ?
(I'll add a checkbox for rounded corners.)

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.

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.
