Smart tabs for qttabbar ( windows 10 dark themes ) by Mykou Smart tabs for qttabbar ( windows 10 dark themes ) by Mykou
Hi all

So I decided to make my own tab skins for dark visual styles

Original idea from rbardini here , I asked to get permissions to mod and release to public
( get no answer so dunno if he still cares about his deviant page but if problems I will
cancel and delete this work , no problem )…

The idea was to have a square effect for the folder icon where qttabbar allows dropdown menu with a separate part for name display
The second skin is a variant without square but a blue accent color for selected tab to fit with my main theme ( dark and blue ) and with a " windows 10 feeling" like the tasbar icons , and a light grey accent for inactive tab.

In order to use it you have to go to qttabbar options - Appearance - Tab skins
Choose in Rendering of Tab Background and Text the "skin" option for tab rendering mode
and then browse to location where you copy my skins

Here are the settings I'm using in tab appearance options ( you may have to set differents one
according to your resolution or scaling mine is 1920 x 1080 )

width fixed to 159 height 27
padding ( left,right ) 10 / 30

text color set to a blue one for active tab and white for inactive

text alignment is centered

text offsets ( X,Y) 5 / 0

tab icon offsets ( X,Y ) -6 / 0

Instructions in zip file , nothing complicated.

Hope you enjoy them 

Thanks Nod
