    So we all know that in the C#dotnet environment there is little to no support for out of the box themes. That's why i have designed my own theme from scratch. Al tough it's allot of work it's quite satisfying when your done. I'm planning to also add a dark theme that people can use and/or switches automatically to dark if the sun goes under in your region.

    To make a long story short i would like to get people's feedback on the theme, i have tried to design a easy to use interface for beginners and professionals without losing to much features. A.K.A. designing my own framework so i can set up bots in record times. Anyway i would love to get any feedback or suggestions from you guy's.

    I have created a quick app what i also wan't to release the next few day's for free on this forum.

    Looks nice and clean.. it's for WPF ? If you can make it look like Visual Studio's dark theme then I'll be interested in it ;)

    Very nice. Just make it so intuitive that most people won't even need to read a manual.
    Too many programs are unnecessarily disorganized and confusing

    What could be done in such a case that it would be more intuitive in your opinion? Do you also mean a overload of options and settings or just the general layout of such a settings panel?

    change Http to http or HTTP, and Ok to OK

    i'd redress start/stop so they stand out as ctas more than the other buttons

    Ok so i made two examples of the redressed start/stop button which both stand out among the others, although i feel that the second one makes it more feel like a music player :)

    bottom is actually better. go with it, even if you hate it

    often times what you think is ugly actually works the best :l (in my experience anyway)

    I like the bottom one better, keep it as simple and clean as possible.
