IDEA: Make your monitor corners look round
« on: April 23, 2009, 08:59:24 AM »
Maybe kind of useless, but I really wonder what my pc looks like when the corners are overlay with a black image of an outer corner.

Like this.

So 4 times this image, and later on maybe multiple monitor support. Maybe with the ability to set the radius of the rounded corner?

It sounds like a cool effect, although it might get annoying if it covered up the Close button on maximised windows.

Well I think it wouldn't totally cover the close button.

 :) Try RoundedCorners, a quick script that shows four images in the corners of the screen.

Download the four images and save them as 1.gif, 2.gif, 3.gif and 4.gif in the same folder as the script.

Code: [Select]
;RoundedCorners.ahk

 :) Try saving the png files with a white background, or change the lines
Code: [Select]
Gui,Color,FFFFFF
WinSet,TransColor,FFFFFF,ahk_id %guiid%
to something else.
I guess you've already changed the lines with gif in them to png.

 :) The code doesn't work with transparent or alpha blended images, it just turns white color transparent.

This is pretty cool!  Would it be possible to edit the script so the .gif's can be embedded within the script, instead of the the folder?
