AeroCalculator by SuprVillain AeroCalculator by SuprVillain
[Edit] Updated the Calc so that you can now Right click on the output line and Copy/Paste to it.
[/Edit]

So I took one of my original apps back from when i was learning vb6, and i added in the "aero" routine.

Sadly enough, the text on the buttons is also Aero, because in vb6 you cant change a button's forecolor.

not to big of a drawback though.

I may end up making a collection of Aero Acessories, and bundle them together as one download.

I think a notepad, this, the aerocommand, and an aero run prompt.

Check out this for an example of what can be done with AERO. It's an AERO Notepad. This is C++ I think, but requires .NET Framework to be installed.

If your AERO calc has scientific mode I'll use it everyday!

I tried using the DwmExtendFrameIntoClientArea API to glass the default calculator (I got the hWND with FindWindow API) but the same problem occurs - text transparency!

The API is like Vista (buggy OS and buggy API). Hope they will fix it in Windows 8!

i was told to use a WPF form and the black text would not be a problem any more. I never tried it, but i just thought i would pass the information along to you.

LOLOLOL ~ na messing...

__Technology they're ways to get Aero to work in xp, but it's way to complicated to explain and I myself have never got it working properly (have messed up my os a few times though, that could also been because of the unstableness of how/what xp I install when i tired... ). *wonders* mmmm anyways google is your friend owo

only way to make tekst non transparent
in some scripts its to make him white in the shellstyle.dll but then you need dark buttons

Please use compatible text rendering on the buttons and on the output text ;)
The compatible text rendering is just a property of the buttons, and the text above must be drawn with a GraphicsPath including the string object (the output).

/as i said in the original post, the text on the buttons is a flaw in MS's commandbutton control, there is no forecolor property to assign to it, it does not exists in vb6.

The output is just a text control, masked, there is no graphics path with that control, inface, there is not grpahicspath what so ever. i have set both of the font to calibri, due to font smoothing and rendering.

You must be used to .net programming.
