[AddOn] Glass Toasts

Recommended Posts

Glass Toasts by Andreas Verhoeven (AndreasV)

Info: GlassToasts replaces the "ugly" WindowsXP/Vista style balloon notifications with the Beta 1 style glassy toasts: With this application the balloons in Vista will also have an aero glass look.

Known Issues:

1- If the application is running and you uninstall it explorer will crash (fix this by closing the app b4 uninstall)

2- I find the following switches do not work for me under Windows XP (hopefully I can get an updated version with these fixed)

"-auto" will start the glass toasts directly without showing a dialog.

"-show" will show the dialog of a previously started GlassToast.exe

"-stop" will stop a previously started GlassToast.exe procedure. The application remains active

"-kill" will stop all previously started GlassToast.exe and unload them from memory.

very impressive...now if someone could reshack this into the windows file responsible for baloon notifications (avoiding the need for a separate process), id be on board :P
Umm thats a great idea :thumbsup_anim:

Maybe this could help reducing app memory consumption since it uses almost 7mb of ram for normal operation... :unsure:

Anyone dare to do this? :sweatingbullets:

Thanks! Now I'm wondering, where did the new style clock, the glassy balloon tips (toasts), etc. disappear in Vista. Alphas (Longhorn builds), Betas, RCs etc. had them, but Microsoft removed them. Weirdos... Thanks Rick, great, great addon!

hi Rick,

is it possible to make the "frame"(size) of this display somewhat small..

I feel the toast is too big when it displays the window.

Thank you
