A dinamic Interface
« on: May 20, 2009, 11:24:13 AM »
First I apologize for my English, I am Mexican.
I download the CD two days ago and I find it great.
But I wish to suggest some improvements:

1.   Somebody ask for a clock in the background, I think you could put a marquee at the top or bottom (maybe around) with a configurable text which include the date and time, memory, disc space, user name, etc. it could be plain text or a graphic image made at the moment the menu displays, it doesn’t matter if the hour don’t refresh.
2.   We can make submenus according to the window class we are at. (I use the StrokeIt, a mouse gesture gadget that allows me to draw in screen and send a command or key to the application in which I drown). So we can make a submenu for Outlook with an icon for New Message, Refresh, Address Book, Next and Previous Message, Etc and this menu will be displayed when we click over the Outlook Window. Also if you recognize a window class you could send commands to this class and implement, for example, a submenu for the media player with a Next, Prev, Pause/Play, Maximize or minimize button that will work with the application running minimized.
3.   Is there a way to send keys instead running a command? If it is, We could make our own submenu and there’s no need to modify the program.

I hope my bad English be comprehensible for you.

Thanks for this amazing program

Buenos Dias and welcome Amigo to Donationcoder.com and CircleDock's little corner of it  :D

My apologies for my Espanol being so bad, and my inability to get the letter accents in place.

Your English is just fine.

And the concepts presented are great  ;)

I must admit that these request will have to go straight to the programmer, VideInPicture.
Unfortunately he has been away, but I believe he will return.
Last word from Mr. Wong (aka.VideoInPicture, aka. VIP) is that he is working on a revamp of CircleDock, and hopefully at thta time it will be more interoperable with our needs.

I Thank you for your suggestions, and we welcome any firther input you may have.

Thanks and again welcome  :Thmbsup:

Thank you very much for your answer. While I was wandering in the web I found this small application named LaunchKey which is able to Launch and application and send some Keys and special keys to it. So I made some tests and I did these small controls for MediaMonkey, and it really works. Just have to send the Parameters with the Key and the full application route and the application will execute the command and if it is closed it'll open too

Target .\System\Miscellaneous\launchkey\LaunchKey.exe

This is for Play
Arguments "^P" "C:\Archivos de programa\MediaMonkey\MediaMonkey.exe".(you have to end it with a colon or else the " (sorry I don't know its name) will be erased).
This is for Next
Arguments "^N" "C:\Archivos de programa\MediaMonkey\MediaMonkey.exe".
This is for Prev
Arguments "^B" "C:\Archivos de programa\MediaMonkey\MediaMonkey.exe".
This is for Stop
Arguments "^O" "C:\Archivos de programa\MediaMonkey\MediaMonkey.exe".

I hope you can try this and explain it to the rest a little much better than I.

It also works to open the search window just sending the Win+F Key

Target .\System\Miscellaneous\launchkey\LaunchKey.exe
Arguments "#F"
