Several Blackboxbar issues


Best Answer knowom , 25 June 2017 - 02:57 PM

SystemBar has a configuration menu if you hold CTRL and right click on it where you can set it to show icon, text, or icon & text next to the program/folder. It also has a option to hide/show the system tray icons. One is is window/tasks while the other is in window/enabled.

I just switched from BBLean to BBZero and I'm at war with the BlackBoxBar. Two main problems:

1) Whenever I turn on transparency, most of the bar disappears except for the active window, my (admittedly awesome) workspace titles, and my clock. I really want transparency as my menu and even my visual style (I'm having the transparency problems with Explorer and Firefox as well, which, as far as I know, are common and not fixable, so I just turned off bbleanbar and use a visual style that matches as best as I can.) are transparent, so if this is at all possible, could someone show me their code and how they do it?

 

2) I can't seem to not have an icon on my active window. I've searched through the code and tried many things to make it go away, but it just won't seem to leave, like a bad case of herpes on my blackboxbar. As someone with a vehement hatred of icons, this won't do. Can someone please tell me how to get rid of this eyesore?

I used WindowLabel so that it only shows text.

Hmm. That's an interesting idea. I'm somewhat new to editing more than just changing colors and small personalization bits such as that. Would you mind showing me your code, how you did it? (I almost typo'd an "h" after the c there. that would have been embarrassing.)

I'm also thinking about transplanting the blackboxbar code from old bblean into bbzero, because I know I achieved transparency with that in the past.

 

Tell me, would this work?

Update: That didn't work. I've given up on the transparency, but can someone just help me get rid of that infuriating icon? I've scrubbed everything I can possibly find of icons and yet, miraculously, it's still there. I'm wondering if it's even possible to remove an icon on the active task. I will go back to bblean if so. I hate icons with a passion.

Whoa. This is great. Thank you so so so much. I've been fighting with this for weeks. I could just kiss you! This solves everything.

 

Cheers, you magnificent human being. May many extremely attractive people of your preferred sexual partner's gender throw themselves to your feet overcome with lust, good sir or madam. You are greatly appreciated.

Ctrl+right click on the toolbar and check the no icon option.
