Topic: xtaskbar -Windows XP


I have a xtaskbar of size 800px with a transparent background. But occasionally the taskbar background will extend to the max size of the screen and also in height to 1280x800. It does with higher versions of xtaskbar. When I refresh it goes away. Any ideas?

xtaskbar 1.2.5.dll

Sorry...had to do it.  tongue  Are your taskbar dimensions relative or fixed?  I wonder if something happens and LS detects a change in resolution and adjusts.

I am glad you asked, I have them fixed actually. I even tried having a fixed width xtaskbar image. The strange thing is after having them fixed, and the background stretched to full size. I did a !alert $taskbarcurrentwidth$. It showed me my fixed width....

Here is my config: xtaskbar 1.2.5.dll
