 Thanks for the hint, Kim; I tried a complete reinstall, applying the win7
 theme patch before instancing the search bar, and now at least I have
 consistent results on both machines. The bar doesn't match my taskbar color
 but at least it is homogenous (see attached).

 you probably need to dive into the CSS and adapt them to go better with
 the system look.

 What puzzles me is that other people (e.g. James Nix on Win 7 64-bit) seem
 to get a transparent search bar that lets their Win 7 theme colors show
 through.

I seem to recall the themes were designed not to be transparent, but
to have the same color as the various themes (there's one Olive, one
Silver and one XP blue, for example). Maybe James system color happens
to match the DQSD theme color?

 I could perhaps tweak the search bar color to match the taskbar
 color but (1) the taskbar is sort of a gradient fill rather than a uniform
 color, (2) if I changed my windows theme of course the search bar would no
 longer match, and (3) I haven't found, in my various poking, how to do that!

Again, I don't know enough CSS to style my way out of a double-door,
so I don't think I can help :)

Michael,

Checking back over the emails.  Did you confirm that we (you and I) are
using the same DQSD Win7 Theme pack developed my Matt?

In Windows 7 on the PersonalizationWindows Color page do ANY of the color
or tint a or transparency settings have ANY effect on the
color/tint/transparency of the DQSD Search Bar?

Jim

I took a look at theme.css (Win7 version) and saw it uses 7toolbar1.bmp to
draw the backgrounds, and that turns out to be a  1-pixel wide column of
black pixels with a two-pixel decoration at the top. So I made one like it
using my toolbar blue. It looks almost perfect, except you'll note the light
top-shadow is one pixel thicker over the search bar than the rest of the
toolbar (fig. 1).  For some reason DQSD is putting two pixels of light blue
where the bmp only has one (fig. 2).

Anyway my original question remains... how does this work for anyone whose
toolbar isn't black to start?

Yes, in fact you've sent it to me.

 color/tint/transparency of the DQSD Search Bar?

Nossir.

 Perhaps someone else with Windows 7 installed can confirm this.

That's what I been sayin! :)

Judging from your screenshot, it looks like a mix of the Vista and XP
Blue themes.

I can't speak for the themes implementation, I don't know it well
enough, but if the default themes don't match your Windows coloring,
you probably need to dive into the CSS and adapt them to go better
with the system look.

Cheers,
