I will prepare images and upload later.

Meanwhile, I have a question...

The program I use is GIMP 2.8.0. It does not offer an option to set that text in the header of the file as I export it from GIMP.

I could use a text editor and search and replace all the files, to take out:

Code: Select all
char * K:\MMExDevelopment\Source\mmex_0_9_9_0\resources\GC

and replace it with:
Code: Select all
const char *


Is that all that needs to be done?

Your files have a further comment line that changes with each file.

I'll work on completing and improving all the icons/graphics and post a URL of my samples when I've done.

It won't be till after the weekend - maybe longer.

Hi Nikolay,

I have just uploaded my first batch of proposed icons/graphics. So far it is only designs for the Menus and Toolbar.

It will be a few days longer before I tackle the rest.

Find them at:
http://www.gregchapman.plus.com/mmex/

On the web page they are in .gif format but I can zip the .xpm versions if it is agreed to adopt them.

Hope you like them. I am happy to do small changes if needed.

Thank you Greg!

I like your icons more than original ones.

Please, make Show App Start Dialog more light
Online Update Currency Rate not nice. May be $ should be a bit smaller and moved forward?
Budget Setup looks like stocks quotes (I like it)
Transaction Report Filter I don't like

PS Unfortunately wxMenu don't support SetBitmap. We can't use Print Preview..., Print..., Recent Files etc
PSS I've updated a lot of icons for mmex 0.9.9.1

I made it dark because at it's natural colour I found it lacked contrast as it matched the normal menu background colour. I could give it a near white background instead.

I agree that it is too messy. I will try to make the arrows smaller and separate them, as you suggest.
Budget Setup looks like stocks quotes (I like it)
I was planning to make the "Stocks" icon on the navigation pane a red down arrow and blue up arrow, (the colours on traders screens) to make it so not to be confused with the budget icon.
Transaction Report Filter I don't like
I know the "funnel" is a common icon on database programs, but I don't understand why a funnel should represent a filter. That's why I chose something different. My version was based on another program's filter icon. It makes more sense to me with the vertical line representing a screen with holes that only certain items can pass through. That makes sense as a filter to me. A funnel lets everything through - but slower!

I think you are saying that you can't have an icon on an item where there is a second cascading menu. Is that right?

:-)

I am still working on the other graphics. Do you have a sample .mmb file? My installation doesn't use Stocks, Assets. Budget or Custom SQL Reports, so I may miss some of the graphics within the main pane.

I have now lightened it.

I've added more contrast to the dollar symbol on all icons and move the components on the update version around.

I have not changed that one. Keep the old one if you hate the new version too much!

Still awaiting a reply to this point!

I'm looking forward to seeing the result!

NOTE: A number of the earlier versions of my icons have been changed again (e.g. "Organise Currency") so do update the complete set when I post them.

I haven't got a "sample" file with all possibilities included, so I still have a large number of icons I haven't found used in 0.9.9.0.

I have updated the page at:
http://www.gregchapman.plus.com/mmex/index.html
If you are happy I will attempt to generate the .xpm files with the header edited as you require.

Thank you very match Greg,

Nice icons. I'll include all of them into new release.

Could you please provide more icons for accounts.
Like cash, credit cards, Pay Pal etc

That for sutisfiy suggestions provided by another user.

4. Usability: to extend more predefined accounts types: Cash, Bank account, PayPal, e.t.c.
8. Usability - ability to change icons used to accounts.
