    Hii,

    I juz thought of sharing this title bar i made for an app. No maximize button as its meant for a full screen app. But perfectly ok with a normal app too.

    [size=medium]Usage:[/size]

    1) Download the control

    2) Drag drop the title bar to the toolbox.

    3) Customize the form to suit the control
    @ Make the control box, text, icon properties of the form to false to remove the deafult thing.
    @ A blck bg would suit the title bar most cuz it has round edges and suits more for a full screen app.

    4) Now you have to initialize the control to display the app name, icon (optional) and the mail form.

    in the form load add
    Code:
    
    titlebar.setForm("Your application name", me,  "image file for the icon ex: my.resources.icon" )
    
    
    
    setForm method: +1 overload

    setForm(ByVal frm as Form, ByVal name as String)
    setForm(ByVal frm as From, ByVal name as String, ByVal icn as Image)

    Screens:
    [​IMG]



    dont forget to make the dock property to top so that the title bar rezises like the real one :D


    Hope ya like it :D
    cyah
