Vista Aero: WM_GETTITLEBARINFOEX doesn't follow the Advanced Appearance setting RRS feed

  • Question

  • Steps:

    1. Show application window. Send WM_GETTITLEBARINFOEX. Remember the height of system buttons returned. Do not close application window;

    2. Run Advanced Appearance settings. Select Active Title Bar. Increase size. CLick Ok, then apply;

    3. Observe, that the applicaiton window was redrawn;

    4. Send WM_GETTITLEBARINFOEX again.

    BUG: The height of system buttons is the same as it was before new Appearance Settings had been applied;

    NOTE: Bug is specific for Vista Aero theme. Vista Basic is working fine

  • Does it repro in Windows Standard mode?

    Does it only affect 32-bit apps on x64, or also 32-on-32 and 64-on-64?

    We'll file a bug and investigate on our side, but it's too late to fix this for Windows Vista.

    Thanks for the report.
