Window borders and backgrounds bitmaps

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am just in the middle of coding my UI, and wondered if there were any free bitmap resources out there for window borders, window backgrounds, UI elements etc. I figured my UI window class would probably take a bitmap as a background, but would specifify the width and height of the borders so it knows which part of the window to stretch for the background. Is this normally how these resources are created, or is each border part (top left, bottom, etc.) a seperate bitmap? Thanks for any help!

Personally I'd use background colors as much as possible, with only bitmaps where they're necessary, like the corners and maybe the edges as well.

But of course that depends on what sort of UI you want - plain and simple, or highly graphical and stylish.
