Cool a new GlassButton!

GlassButton test demo

I liked the idea of having a “glassbutton” to use on my VistaPanel. So I decided to try making one. This is the result. It sure took a lot more work than I was thinking it would! Personally I like the result. There are some options to fine tune the result like, Glossy, GlossyLevel and the SingleBorder properties. Best result requires experimenting.

The “Arrow” property will add just that an arrow to the right side of the button. Combining it with the “DuoStyle” property will make the arrow get its own button part. Like you see in the image.

Hope you like it, have fun! Feedback is always welcome!

Smooth vista gradient panel

VistaPanel image

Good looking vista panel

What is it? Simply a panel with a gradient that look like the gradient used in Vista. Play with the colors and I am sure you can come up with something you like. There really isn’t more to say about this small component.

Some times I just get the idea of trying to figure out how they make that gradient, well this is my take at the Vista gradient bar. Enjoy!
