Office 2007 gradient look and feel

I really like the new "glass" look of the gradient controls in Office 2007. From what I can tell it applies 2 gradient fills as a base and sometimes an additional gradient in the center. I think I will add this as a gradient style in version 1.5. Does this sound like something that developers would like?

That is a very nice control. I've emailed you at the address shown in the profile at gotdotnet.

Yes, it's nice control, but it isn't my.

OK, sorry for the misunderstanding.

Are you saying maybe you can help by joining the project or help by pointing me to how someone has done this? Either way thank you. :-)

Microsoft have a good document with design guidelines for Ribbon controls.
