Circle Dock / Re: Circle Dock 0.9.2 Alpha 8 is Officially Released!
« on: September 16, 2008, 02:56 AM »
I think it may be possible to put the lock option on one of the right-click menus. I'll think about it and see if it's a good place for it.

Thanks for the ellipse equation. I think I'm just going to program in the ellipse function for fun and see how it looks. Now that I think about it, I don't think it's possible to express the equation of an ellipse as just a function of one variable so I'll use the equation you gave. The one thing I'm concerned about is that the icons may bunch up at the pointed ends of the ellipse but I'll see how it looks.

As for the problem with Visual C# 2008 SP1, I installed downloaded that or .Net 3.5 SP1 on my computer since they just came out last month. I do have the download on my computer though but I can't explain why it would freeze up on you like that running the code.

I assume you are using the Express version of C#. When you opened the source code for Circle Dock, did Visual C# tell you that it needs to convert it to a new file format? It might have changed the instruction to compile the code as an x64 instead of as x86, which would cause it to crash on a 64-bit machine. The Express editions of Visual Studio don't make it clear that they do that by default and it can mess up a lot of programs.

yep, express edition, but no warning ... and problem without compiling, just because it is there. As if Circle Dock was using a dll updated by VC# sp1 that it really doesn't like . anyway, i'll install it on a clean virtual machine to test

(Rostam has it, if you plan to change the center of the elipse, read the wikipedia page it should explain clearly how to)

thanks for your fast replies :)  (locking the dock position without going in the menus would be cool :D)


x²/w²  + y²/e²  =  1/4

where w= elipse's FULL width
         e = elipse's FULL height

(FULL because at school we generaly learn the half width and height so that the equation ends with " = 1" ^^)


HO !!! I nearly forgot : tried to install visual C# 2008 sp1 on vista 64 home premium (to read source)(which installed a lot of things like .net framework 3.5 sp1), and it messed up CD quite a lot : when loading CD the mouse was becoming unresponsive (but not the keyboard) and it displayed strange dark frames ... uninstalled vc# (and additionnal stuff) and everithing was back to normal when loading CD (no mouse freeze)... don't know what happens but it's not really cool. any idea ?

Hey people :)

I dicovered CD today and played a little with alpha8, and I found somme suffestions for future improvements maybe :

- on my mouse (logitech mx 500) / vista 64 with no mouseware (I.E. using microsoft regular drivers), CD thinks that buttons Xbutton1 and Xbutton2 are the same (whereas firefox doesn't)

- under "normal" window behavior, toggling visibility (for exemple moving the mouse to the edge) does NOT show CD if it is under other windows, you have to go to the border a second time to show CD above the other windows ... could it possibly bring the window to front if it is not, the first time I toggle visibility ? (I set CD not to disappear when a file is clicked)

- could there be an option to lock CD content ? it would prevent accidental drag'n'drop to the center of the dock

Added to other suggestions I've seen in the alpha7 discussion, that's it, rocking app !!! :)

edit : is that just on my system, or CD does not remember the positition where it was shut off ?
