application switcher theming?

Hi again,

Thanks a bunch! I also managed to set a background-image using bg_pixmap[NORMAL], so the
app-switcher is really according to my taste now.

Still, it's a pity that the icon-size is not configurable...
So if I would like to play with that would it be sufficient to recompile xfwm4 with
"#define WIN_ICON_SIZE 48" changed in tabwin.c or would that result in a big mess (I'm
not very good with reading c-code...)?

Anyways, thanks again for your support!

>Yes, the widget is called "xfwm4-tabwin" so you can do crazy things like:
>style "tabwin" = "default"
>    bg[NORMAL]      = "#ffffff"
>    bg[SELECTED]      = "#00ff00"
>    fg[SELECTED]      = "#ffffff"
>    bg[INSENSITIVE]   = "#ff0000"
>    fg[INSENSITIVE]   = "#0000ff"
>widget "xfwm4-tabwin*"             style "tabwin"
>The icon size is not configurable though
