Re: What are these terms?

Oh great, some of the mods at ReactOS don't have a sense of humor! Deleting posts is the worse sin, well it was fun being here, I don't put up with being censored by anyone.

Re: Reactos Internet Explorer (RIE)

The menu system is built in as webpages, simply drop down the Wrench icon list and pick one, you'll get a new tab opened with all your settings. This is a good method, a modern method. Forget about the old menu systems, they were a waste of space and always a challenge to find where (if at all) they...

Re: ReactOS Facebook Group Page

Yeah, I was just letting people know how the previous efforts have not been a shining example and that "hopefully" things will change, because months between posts, when it's a community driven project is like saying you (The devs) don't care what the public think of your work.. even tho it may be t...

Re: ReactOS Facebook Group Page

Because the initial hype and usage were so lacking, then there was everyone taking the time to say something negative about having "yet another" page, so we'll all just stick to using the official one and wait 6 - 7 more months for a new post on it... yay

Re: Reactos Internet Explorer (RIE)

No need to make the OS have it's own stuff yet, it's still too alpha to get involved in designing tools and features. The fact is windows users already have their preferred browsers and if ReactOS is working correctly then they will work while your using ReactOS, so IMO no need for a browser, just t...

Re: ReactOS Logo Concept

Glad your accepting feedback, now I know you can, here's what I really wanted to say:

Another major problem is that exclamation marks can also be considered a caution! <- see

I do like the atomic path effect, just not sure about the exclaim.

Re: ReactOS Logo Concept

Not enough color for my taste and as it's a mid gray, it would be unusable on many surfaces. You may need to add a glow/shadow or contrasting edge or something to make it more logo friendly (a logo can be used on any surface with only minor colorization changes (usually)).

Hopefully REX doesn't just sit there... You really want it to fetch your files and bring them back :lol:

Some ideas of what to call explorer projects

Desktop Objects for ReactOS Applications "the explorer"

Yeah that ones a joke

The real idea is this one:

ION
short and has many meanings that suit what it does.
Also works as React-ION

ION could stand for Interface Object Navigation

was just thinking out loud.

Re: HELP please, My head hurts, C & C++ confuse me

Well all I've learned is that the Explorer code doesn't have enough done for me to simply add in what I wanted. SetWindowText doesn't work on that combo, it's only able to show items that are in it's combo list, which it's empty, and I've not found out how to add items to a ComboBox in C++ yet. I di...

Re: HELP please, My head hurts, C & C++ confuse me

I ran Explorer_New in Windows 7 and saw how it was only in control of the Taskbar & Start Menu, due to how shell32.dll will handle the Window controls via Explorer actions/calls. This is how MS do it so I guess ReactOS will have to follow that method to be more compatible with windows. The person wh...

Re: HELP please, My head hurts, C & C++ confuse me

Looks like my month is filled :) - I'll come back when I am smart. Monitoring the Bugzilla and forums, but no point in me starting important coding until I know what I am doing with the Choice Language.

Re: HELP please, My head hurts, C & C++ confuse me

Thanks for the info, It's making more sense now, I was wondering last night how you access Struct Data, now it's all piecing together. I tried to execute Explorer_new.exe without it seeming to do anything, I'll hunt around the forum for more info on this, but is there a trick to getting it started, ...
