    Hello,

    I'm trying to recreate the WIndows Vista Aero window effect by using variable transparency PNGs for the shadow and translucency effects for the window chrome. During planning, I've noticed that while I'd be able to modify the skin pretty trivially by modifying the CSS and image dimensions, the increased border width (due to the drop shadow padding) would make the translucent shadow part clickable as well, making the "resizable" click area 10px wider than expected.

    My question is, is there a way to control or modify the resizable border width to allow the drop shadow part of the border to bleed out?

    Hi Klemen Slavič,

    The width of the resize / dragzones of RadWindow is what is being set by the person that creates the custom skin. These zones are also part of the elements that make up the design of the skin and cannot be controlled separately. What I mean is that you cannot set the left rezize bar to 10 pixels to fit the image that you are using for this part, but to set the resize zone to 4.

    Yes, that's what I've feared might be the answer. Too bad though.

    Thank you.
