Theme10 - win10 (and probably others) High Contrast theme creator.

24 Mar 2017, 13:43

Theme10
v1.1
Download | Screenshot
(requires ahk_h)



About:
Don't make your eyes bleed with bright OS windows.
I wanted to make a theme for win10, only way is high-contrast. Built-in theme options are limited and no preview, so I made this.
It might also work for Classic theme (the win98 look). but win10 removed that style option so I cannot test. If it does, it should give access to more color options. High Contrast only seems to use a few of them.
More info is on github.

NOTICE:
- Tested on win10 64bit home.
- Once you apply a theme, your start menu might become unresponsive for 5-10 seconds. That's not my fault.
- Not all windows will look the same. Many programs theme stuff differently, or override defaults. So like all High Contrast themes, it'll probably look ugly on some/most windows. Don't blame me. Also, this was made for Windows 10. The created themes may or may not work on older OS's.

That looks really great, thanks for sharing. (already using Delightful Sprout.theme :) )
Would be good to have a button to apply theme (Run ...\Test Theme.theme), it was not obvious that theme needs to be saved and double clicked / opened first before 'Show Test Window' would show the new theme ;)

Thanks :D
I was going to add a button to apply it, but just in the very off chance something happened, I didn't want it to be my programs fault for screwing up the apply. Didn't want my program incharge of changing OS settings, just create the file(s). I might reconsider. Applying is also covered on github readme.


Also, the "Show Test Window" window has some text in the menu bar explaining so :) This is also why I have the preview window to the side, because you can't apply a theme to just 1 window, afaik. Needed to simulate it.

How about including test window in the code, something like this:

Fancy. I did plan on a tabbed UI for preview/test window, but just got too lazy to copy/paste :P I do like this more. I'll keep it. Thanks!

I'll add the Apply feature aswell.

edit: gui, add, gui is a thing? :o don't see it in the docs. I should be using that, with auto size stuff. my way feels laggy.
edit edit: I guess I can't. the scrollbar from the sidebar seems to get applied to the main window, so everything scrolls. That's not good.

update:
* embedded test window
* creates required files if non-existent
* altered the preview window a bit
* added a better GUID generating system
* added drag-and-drop onto the UI
* there is now an Apply button in the File menu
* other minor things that I don't feel like typing.

added a new theme too.
