Tasbar Not Filling Screen

Alan Wade's profile on WallpaperFusion.com
This is a recent problem maybe two or three beta's back but as you can see when using WindowBlinds the taskbar does not fill the screen and leaves a blue gap at the end. I have tried many different blinds but it is the same with all of them.

Second Monitor


Main Monitor


The little arrow that displays the hidden icons points to the left on the second screen but not on the main.

Can these little annoyances be corrected?

We can certainly check it out! What theme is shown in your screenshots?

Thanks for the prompt reply Keith, the theme shown is Emblaze but as I said it was the same with all the themes I tried.

Lets start with a somewhat embarrasing apology Keith!

For some reason (not sure why) the background on my second monitor was set to an offset of -40. When I corrected this offset to 0 this is what, and should have, got:



As you can see the taskbar is still short and the arrow is still pointing to the left but not quite as noticable as before.
I can only conclude that at some point I had set the offset for one of my backgrounds so apologies if this has created problems at your end.

No worries Alan! We'll see what we can do about the taskbar not extending to the edge. It looks like the WindowBlinds theme has the Show Desktop button in the same resource as the rest of the taskbar, so it's not actually giving DisplayFusion an image to use for the Show Desktop button that we draw for our taskbar.

As for the tray overflow arrow, I don't have access to the Emblaze theme, but in other themes, it seems to point up, as expected. Can you double check a couple of other themes?

Thanks!

Here is a few themes I tried Keith.









As you can see the results are somewhat different. But I have to be honest and say that three other themes displayed correctly except for not filling the screen so I guess its just my choice of themes.

Ok, no worries Alan! We'll look into it when we get a chance and I'll post an update as soon as we have one.

Thanks!

I have the same issue as seen in the attached image. The WindowBlinds Master skin is Agenda by vStyler. It does happen with others.
So my question: Is there a solution / work arround?

@Ian: At the moment there isn't a workaround. It seems like the WindowBlinds themes aren't offering up the right parts for the taskbar and show desktop button. As soon as we get a chance to look into it further, I'll be sure to post an update.

Thanks!

We've just released 4.2 Beta 3, and the show desktop button should look a bit better when running WindowBlinds now. Could you guys give it a try when you have a chance?

Thanks!

I tested eight different blinds and the taskbar was filled by all of them! The system tray button still does not align in the middle of the taskbar, it still is aligned at the top, but in all fairness its something that I for one can live with.
Thankyou very much for all the hard work put into DF to satisfy everybody's niggles and moans.
