    SbOS 4.0 - Development Screen Shot

    Here's a screen shot of a new version I have been working on.

    Basically you will be able to open multiple skinbedder skins and switch between them, it has a built-in real-time skin editor, and it can auto-embed any foreground window.

    The Window Title, Width, Height, and the 4 Boarders are filled in automatically just by switching to Calculator and positioning it on top of the SbOS window. When you switch back to SbOS it will keep all of Calcs information (it does not update values when SbOS is the foreground window). Window Class is supposed to be auto-filled also but I have a bug

    If I clicked OK in the picture below, Calculator would be embedded in SbOS in the exact size and position it currently is... basically it would just look like the blue Titlebar around Calculator disappeared and it would then be part of SbOS.

    Once this is all done, any skinner will basically be able to create their own front-end just by embedding WinAmp (or any other music player) and any other apps they want.

    Project-Time-Frame: As little as a month or as long as a year... probably 4-months or so, so be patient. I just wanted to post this early screen-shot to see what people think of the idea. I think every front-end should be fully configurable from within the app, not only by tweaking text files. Each AppSKIN will be one XML and a bunch of PNGs though if you do like to tweak text files

    Yes, the idea is to have a real-time skin-editor built in to the exe. I'm not sure I will ever release this though, as I think this will just be a feature in the front-end I am working on rather than a stand-alone utility app like SKINbedder.

    What front end are you using currently? This seems to make skining very easy.

    I'm using RR. Here's a tip about using Sb with RR... it is better to do the skin in RR. I just use Sb to crop the embedded window. For everything else I just use RR. Actually, I usually have RR buttons run Auto-It scripts and use Auto-It to control the embedded application. This works best.

    The only reason to use the SKINing features of Sb in RR is if you need buttons that overlap the embedded app. If your buttons are on the sides or top/bottom of the apps window, then you might as well just put them in your RR skin.

    You have to use Sb to crop and to embed multiple windows though.

    Understand. Thanks for the tip.

    Can i crop two windows at the same time and change their positions? If yes how can I do that. Like for the image below, can I crop the two (highlighted in red) windows at the same time?
