A really small open source file that has a real flexable way of making an Office XP Style menu.

This is NOT the actual OfficeXp menu bar, I added in a few fx of my own, nothing view able in a screenshot tho, so if you want to see this, just open an OfficeXp program.

This is only a tutorial, I cant tell you how many people thought this was a skin for windows.

Tell me how you think about it, I'm willing to accept both good & bad, please be constuctive though, I'm plaining on using this on any new windowed projects I make, & I would like to have some help on making better.

i like it also the selector thing looks a bit glitchy i think you should take out the selector squaring up with the button or fix it up and make it smoother. looks really nice tho

Hmmm, a bit odd, I've never seen this look in office XP. Long comment comming up... Shadows look wrong, maybe they would look better if it was a large image scaled down? Or if you used 5 Alpha objects, one for the right, one for the base & one for each corner (top right, base left, base right). Then you would just have to re-size the right & base ones, and they would not be distorted. This would give you more control & may be faster rendering too. V. nice style of menu though.
