New Sample UI Posted

Monday March 22nd, 1999

We at Mozillazine have been playing around with XUL/CSS, and have created our own UI. It is similar to the old configurable chrome in mozillaclassic. To try it, simply rename the navigator.xul file to navigator.xu~, which is in the res/samples/ directory of the m3/nightly builds, download the new navigator.xul (*shift-click!*) file and place it in the same directory. This will download all the chrome and other UI elements when you load apprunner. Note, this will not change any UI except for the browser window.

In the UI, we killed the second/personal toolbar, added our own menu, changed the colors and buttons, and added some functionality. You can now load a new window, Messenger, or Composer from the bottom toolbar/component bar.

You are replying to this message

someone asked about resizing the html pane of the browser. just open up the navigator.xul file in your favorite editor and change the 440px reference to the height that you want to use. basically, the navigator.xul file is just an "html" like layout of the navigator ui. don't be afraid to play around with this file and see what kind of entities are used, but also see how easy it is to muck around with the layout.
