Annoying border..
« on: November 19, 2008, 09:09:59 PM »
[attachimg=#1][/attachimg]

From the setting above you see I already select no border, transparent and LBC should be completely transparent. But right now still got those tiny ugly little border.

That is annoying -- let me try to remove.
What operating system are you using?

I don't mind the border so much as it lets me know it's running.  My thing is that apps don't treat the border as dead space so the border sits on top of the titlebars.  I use this on a laptop with touchpad and have these issues with Autohide / On top docked to top of screen:

1.  Border is not treated as dead space and it overlays title bars.  When I go to minimize or close an app it's easy to stray into LBC's trigger area.

2. With NO border, the border still shows and LBC will not activate with cursor at the top of the screen.  I have to come down a few pixels.

3.  With THIN border the activation is fine but border intrudes more into application title bars and is too easy to trigger when trying to close an app.

Request:  Could an adjustable delay option be included for the autohide and border?  Something like a 0 to 2500 msec delay where the border/trigger area will ignore the mouse when we slam to the top (or side) while trying to zero in on buttons or scrollbars.   When using touchpads or fast mice it would help folks a bit.  It was nice feature on the launchbar (Blanch) that was replaced by your fine work.

A great app you have here.  Thanks!

I'm happy to say i also fixed the sliding/hiding docks so you can now make them totally invisible when they slide/hide away until you move your mouse near the screen edge (or you can now elect to see a sliver as before, but mostly transparent so it's less annoying).  :up:

Thank you, keep up the good work  :Thmbsup: :-*

yeah it doesnt make much sense to combine noborder with hiding (though it can be done).
i'm glad to hear the border issue is solved.. that one plagued me for a long time, i'm very happy to have solved it.  :D

Delay for unhiding is now implemented (it's fixed at 250ms); i can make it adjustable later if we want.
New version is uploaded.

mouser, this a bit off topic but is it possible to make LBC to properly display an alpha transparent icon?

mouser,

Can I add a vote for a selectable hide & unhide time in a future version?
The instances this would be helpful to me at least is when I am running a program in full sceen and using the touchpad on my laptop.  When I move the pointer to close the program in full screen I get too close to the side and up pops the launchbar.  The 250ms helps but not always.  Is it possible or reasonable to have separate delays for hide & unhide for those that need it?

Thanks!
