Would be nice to darken the window that caused the error message or that is blocked by the modal window like the UAC does (but not the whole desktop, please ;) ) In early Windows Whistler releases with Watercolor you had this, that the dialog that is blocked by a modal dialog is getting a red title ...

I'd prefer a more serious interface that I think looks a bit colder and more "glassy" like the Royale (Noir) does.
Luna looks so Teletubby-like ;)

mh.. I understand But at least ReactOS itself could use specific button captions and captions. For other applications you could just use the normal text without the colored header (which I hate because Vista also has this stupid mix of much text and title bar with summary). But you're right, it woul...

Aren't those files called msvbvm50.dll and msvbvm60.dll?
Every app that needs the VB claims it needs those files not vbrun500.dll ;)

Now those are some NICE dialogs! Even with that said, I don't think they'll go over well since it's off of the standard windows look-n-feel. FlyingIsFun1217 Thanks. But why just 1:1 copy Windows? Why not fix all the stupid small bugs that annoy us for years? And make it even easier to use :) Greeti...

I think that look is much nice than the standard, much more user friendly and buttons etc live in there own areas. Nice work. Thanks http://ensignjoe.weavernet.eu/testboxes.PNG I made some boxes to demonstrate other icons and "styles". So the last would be a copying dialog (if you know vista you'd ...

frugly - aim towards classic looks (Classic look sucks but if you wish...) I was just too lazy to re-design the dialogs with visual basic. But now I deactivated the design service and made a screenshot from Visual Basic ;) I like XP's way to display the classic style better (this stretched close bu...

Message Boxes and their icons

Hi there, I'm new to this forum so I hope I don't post this topic into the wrong category. Unfortunately ReactOS isn't working on my VirtualPC 2007 and on the website there aren't any pictures from message boxes. I wanted to suggest to use one "shape" of message box for every situation. This should ...
