i'm modding the Glaze theme and i've added some code which uses the ByeWindows-0.4 and Timer-0.5 modules to make a custom shutdown screen. I basically used the code from the Obsidian theme and changed the graphics.
The thing is that in the Obsidian theme, the author made his own start menu so it was easy for him to point the shutdown labels in the start menu to the correct scripts which opened up the customised shutdown panels.
I want to do the same as in the Obsidian theme but i've found that i'll need to include a custom popup menu instead of the default one so that when a user clicks on shutdown, restart or logoff, it shows the custom shutdown panel i have included with the theme. I can't figure out how to do this however.
The popup menu which is included in the popup.rc file in the personal folder of LS is the only one which i can get to work. How can i get the popup menu to point to my included popup?
I also thought that when the theme is installed i could alter the code of the popup menu which already exists on the users version of LS but since it is customisable, it may not work properly.
Can anyone help me or suggest another way to go about it? At the moment i just have 3 labels on my desktop for shutting down, restarting or logging off but i'd rather these options were in the popup menu.
