Just a FYI to people - one programmer (from winmatrix) managed to make a 20 line autoscript which actually enables glass on the cmd window. It's incomplete though, but proof of concept.
@PurplePeopleEater Same thing, different frame color.

Okay folks, here is what we have so far:

(Note the theme is slightly edited for this effect, but I hope that issue will be fixed as well as the borders will be added)

Thats amazing progress! Been watching this tread from the begining and i think this idea is fantastic. Are you aiming towards an effect like the gadgets window?

Yep, i think it's close to being completed. Although I wonder what kind of approach will Villian suggest.

Any way to remove the scrollbar? And it's possible to change the background colour using the colour commands right?

Not sure about the scrollbar, but colorization - yeah. As you can see I'm using graphite.

Hmm, not sure if you know what I mean.

If this works with batch files, then you are able to change the background colour (In the centre, where the text field is) and you should also be able to change the text colour.

Text color is changeable, the background color hoverer is not, it looks weird, because the code probably is set to detect color black and remove it.

It worked, but it needs a border. But the background color doesn't look all that great on default...

So then how are you meant to implement a dark tint to make it look sexy?

That's what the developer should fix. But it seems pretty nice on graphite anyway.
About leaking - i can't without the developer's permission. Also its not yet finished, black color doesn't work at all.

Has komalo even posted in this thread? Anyway ill check up on this thing tomorow..looks like good progress.

Back to sleep :D 1:13am

*Regarding the black color, is it only set to delete RGB at 0,0,0? or can we set it so it is graphite-like (Grey?)

Black and all shades of dark grey are too transparent to be visible.
It seems like this 0,0,0 - invisible ---> 255,255,255 White
For some reason the best results in color customization can be only achieved in graphite, in default everything is too bright

I only use graphite, not a problem for me :D

hi all
the border thing can be done through DwmEnableBlurBehindWindow
so i think it can work with http://www.upload.ee...0525/colors.png
and also i think it will remove the gradient
as for the code i am now updating it with DwmEnableBlurBehindWindow to it , do you want the old or wait for the new ?

I'll wait for the new as I'm meant to be asleep anyway.

:woot: Looks great!

But alas, only with graphite, on default white looks a little strange (the colors are very saturated)
A suggestion: If you set the code to remove color black, maybe you can change it to remove magic pink instead? Maybe that way black colorization would be possible...

@fedia

So it is like we have to run a separate app along with cmd to make it glass, is it?? It wud be better if the app itself calls the cmd window so that we dont have to launch two different things.

@komalo
Why not use ExtendIntoClientAll (with -ve margin values) to make the whole window glassy ?? what I mean is there will be no border at all. Everything will be just glass. It wud look even more cool. ;)

This app is just a small command applet which enables glass, after that you can close it (or it can be set to do everything in background) and glass will remain.

And the whole window being glassy isn't so good, you can see the results how it would look on the previous page.
