Htc Hero / Desire/ Legend Taskbar

All updated now, users on WM6.5.X, i would reccomend pasting this png into windows after installing the white taskbar background (if your using the white one) thanks to dandnj and jodeltje Here it is. All should be perfect now. Enjoy!

So.. Heres my second taskbar im working on which is trying to replicate the HTC Hero taskbar onto the windows mobile taskbar.
My first Taskbar (Android taskbar) Can be found Here.
I was planning on putting this with my other thread although i can see how it would confuse me and others to give/take feedback if theres so many versions.

Looks sharp so far. Good luck on the project!

If possible, it would be nice to have a couple different bg choices.

Thanks! Yeah it should do :D

Looks nice man, keep it up!

I dunoo yet to be honest.. Why dont you tell me what you think would look good :D

I think the Start Icon from Windows 7 would look great. But that's just me. Looks like you're off to a good start here, can't wait to test it out!

This would look good with the MaxManila I am running, you know, help tie the rest of the ROM in with the Sense 2.5 setup I am running. :D

and what about no start icon?? since its hero alike taskbar, n in my opinion if its a hero it should look like hero, besides everyone knows where the start icon is in WM 6.5 ;p

Love your work on the 'white' theme...and also the Android taskbar...

looking forward to the Hero version...

request: can you make the taskbar icons by themselves...and NOT tied into a specific taskbar color??
