Cool iris problem
« on: December 03, 2008, 07:38:07 AM »
hi, lovely piece of software :)
but it plays havok with java stuff. causing redrawing issues.
as stated before it leaves ghosting when it is hidden.
and having installed the cooliris addonin firefox, circle dock reduces the plugin to a stuttering mess lol
not enough to make me stop running circle dock tho. looking forward to the next update. Will save my ideas/suggestions till then.
Thanks for your app, it's great :)

it would be a help if i could disable circle dock from the system tray icon without closing the prog.

Just for information, what OS do you have and what are the specs of your machine?

I'd bet CoolIris is the problem.
There have been many complaints since it's recent updates.

Try removing CoolIris and see if it's better.
Then reinstall CoolIris.

hi, xp sp3, 2.5gb mem, ati x1300. it's an old acer 5620 laptop, so could well be my hardware :)
it's cooliris that breaks, so removing it wont fix cooliris hehe. i run the x-mouse button thing so i disable middlemouse for firefox, sketchup, xnview, etc.
closing cirlcle dock b4 running cooliris fixed it. hiding it doesn't, if that helps.
Cooliris is only fullscreen, i don't like that :(
The redrawing issues i have are java webpages such as the streaming monitor on www.advfn.com (unfortunately u need to register to go there) and software is sketchup
Not really much of a problem. i'd rather run circle dock with problems than not have it at all :)
Thanks for getting back to me, i use java update 11 for firefox (same problem with 10).
i did send an email to cooliris chaps and they said it's probably a fight for the topmost graphics layer.
All in all it's no biggie, i don't use cooliris all that often and i can just bring up circle dock and hide it in a corner of the screen where it wont conflict with other things.
cheers,
dazzaa.

dazzaa, take a look here: http://www.donationc....msg141435#msg141435
I've had the same problem and dealt with it by writing an Autohotkey script that REALLY hides Circle dock, but I do hope future CD releases would somehow fix it.

Here is the beginning of the script:


GroupAdd, Dock, ahk_class WindowsForms10.Window.88.app.0.378734a ; this is just my list - here you should list and put all the elements of your CD as it might not work with my list. This is the sickest part of the script - I found their ahk_class through launching http://www.autohotke...nimizeToTrayMenu.ahk script, then hiding all elements using it, then rewriting all the classes from the script's tray (printscreen and OCR will do fine as well) here. I bet there should be an easier way, but I don't know it, and this might also cause you problems if you add new elements...

F13:: ;put your hotkey for launching the script here
if OnOff != 1
{
WinHide, ahk_group Dock
OnOff := 1
}
else
{
WinShow, ahk_group Dock
WinActivate, ahk_group Dock
OnOff := 0
}
return

#IfWinActive ahk_group Dock ;this part tells the dock to hide when left-mouse is clicked
LButton::
Click
Sleep, 50
if OnOff != 1
{
WinHide, ahk_group Dock
OnOff := 1
}
return


DRAWBACKS: This is the script itself, but you ALSO must turn off the option "auto hide CD when application is launched or folder is opened" - that is, we disable CD's auto-hiding mechanism which is independent of OUR ahk-script - so, if you lose your CD and it won't toggle, it could have auto-hidden itself... In case it's lost, just exit the CD and AHK and relaunch them. It also goes without saying that you need to have Autohotkey installed on your machine. And also note that you will have to exit the script if you are going to drag-drop something as otherwise it will be hidden by the AHK-script... Yes, I know it's SICK, but the redrawing issues are even worse.
