I rather like %bx, and use it in places other than just underneath a toolbar.

I have noticed the new innovation of %ln, which is also useful.

Would it be possible to have a version of %bx where the colours are reversed (white above and grey below) or even with the two colours specified separately?

%`bx and %~bx perhaps?

I have beening thinking along similar lines after creating a message box with the buttons on a grey background - basically a spilt background with different colours in each part.

I will add this to the wish list.

Hi Paul,

Many thanks for considering it.

My own use of %bx in that unconventional way (i.e. not below a toolbar) puts a text message and an icon in the grey top part, and the action buttons in the lower white part, which looked great in Win7, but now looks a bit old-fashioned. The other way round would put the text on a white background and the action buttons on grey. My request for settable colours comes from a fear of what MS might do next!

I do think that this sort of thing sits naturally with %bx.
