Circle Dock Enhancements
« on: September 18, 2008, 07:44:22 AM »
Thought this might be a good place for enhancement ideas.

I would PAY to have a working CLOCK (minute/hour hands) as the center button!  Perhaps this can be a dock-type addon....  :)

It would be nice to have running application's thumbnails like in "Video in Picture for Vista".

And, of course, stack submenus similar to these:

There are no immediate plans to code plug-in support into Circle Dock just yet. After Alpha 9 I'll look more into it.

As for the stacklets thing, give me a few minutes, someone sent me a heads up on something I forgot existed....

Please consider (even for far away future) docklets / stacklets support or API.

It would be totally awesome to see different system meters in orbs  8)

I've posted instructions on how to use StandaloneStack on Circle Dock: http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=15006.0

And yes, I will implement regular docklet support if I can code it.

I like the idea and looks  :) of Circle Dock very much.
Nice piece of work !  :Thmbsup:

However personal I think a great addition wold be if it is possible to execute a serie (batch) of programs by clicking on a icon. Currently I'm using this feature in the Docklet application ProgramLaunch which is also nice. Clicking on the item will then start a couple of applications (or open directories) which were placed in a batch.

Tabs (as discussed in another forum message) would indeed also be very valuable and complete the basic functionality.

Thanks in advance.

PS I hope this is the correct place to post any enhancement request.....?

I would like to be able to use my left and right mouse button combination to show the circle dock. I know there is a hotkey app, but thats another app to run.

Hello and Welcome,

Would it not have the same effect if you placed the programs you want to launch in a Windows .bat or .vbs script file?

It's something that I'm thinking about. No concrete plans but I will keep it in mind once I rewrite the hooking dll for Circle Dock.

I've been using this in conjunction with CD for a while already (specifically as a .bat file) and it works like a charm --  ultra convenient :)
