This is a quick little application to get the system colors and write a DTD from them.

For an example of how it's used, see SETi Unthemed

(I'm not exactly hiding it since anyone who peruses the wiki's recent changes will see it, but I don't want any link to the wiki passed out without permission until I'm ready to release. Especially since I'm hoping to get everything moved over to at some point.)

Updates needed

  • Create defaults for non-OS supported options, such as menu highlight --Tometheus 14:02, 15 November 2006 (EST)
    • Test whether using the active caption color would work for links
  • Write some quick documentation
  • Add /silent command line
  • Make the default a pure general purpose DTD
  • For additional features for Trillian:
    • just detect the syscolors.ini file as it currently does?
    • Add /extended command line?
    • Look in the current filepath to see if Trillian is in a parent directory?
    • Don't need to write gradients. That can be done with skinmath.
    • Choose a 'blue' color for activity?
  • Create icons for it
  • Screenshots
  • Add a hex output mode
  • Check if XP has alpha values on colors as well. (MSDN doesn't show a GetAValue)
  • If in Trillian mode, write the current Trillian version
  • Add the desktop font color.

Undecided options

  • Write the OS version?
  • Write other system metrics
    • caption height
    • largefonts
    • Font sizes
    • etc.
