Microsoft SharePoint 2007 - SharePoint Branding Tool v1.6.0 (Custom tool for themes, masterpages, site logos...)

This is an update for this article.

I spent a few more hours trying to update the user interface and to make the tool a little easier to use.

Update 1: New options
The interface is more refined and has shortcuts to open the site directly from a context menu. New items in the "File" menu for easy access to SharePoint Theme files and folders.

Update 2: More Information at a glance
I've added an extra DataGrid View to show properties of the selected site or selected theme. This version also shows the theme preview.

Update 3: Easier to use interface
I've reduced the pop-ups and tried to bring is all together in the one window.


You can get the latest (v1.6.3) SharePoint Branding Tool here:

Is it possible to change the popup
"Succes, Theme application complete. Results have been logged in a text file" to something less intrusive? Something like a green icon or bar in the lower right?

The popup is kind of annoying when you're changing themes a lot.

Thanks for the response.

Barakaldo - Send me the details under that message. I'll try and find out what it is.

Barakaldo - Good idea! I'll do it when I get back from my vacations :)
