Requests / Suggestions thread
« on: January 17, 2010, 05:58:46 PM »
***ATTENTION, READ CAREFULLY***ATTENTION, READ CAREFULLY***ATTENTION, READ CAREFULLY***ATTENTION, READ CAREFULLY***
This will become and official suggestions and request thread.

If you have a suggestion for Circle Dock, please feel free to list suggestion(s) and Request(s) Here.

I will do my very best to maintain a request/suggestion list here on this post.
So before making a suggestion: REVIEW THIS FIRST POST, the List, and all posts, CAREFULLY!!! To see if what you want to suggest has already been posted.
If it has been previously suggested...you run the risk of bad words and my special ability: TONGUE LASH!!!
Trust me; you do not want a Tongue Lashing from the Sarge!

Please do not expect over night solutions, as there will be none (Rome was not built in a day...and all that).
You may also follow along at the Code Site here (Markham has been real good about keeping this up):
http://redmine.dcmembers.com/projects/circledock
Bug reports, features, and further information can be tracked through this site.

That being said, please make your requests and suggestions for Circle Dock.
Be as clear in your request and suggestions as possible, as I will be re-posting your request to "the List".
If I screw up a request, feel free to correct me, as I do not want to screw one up to badly.

If for some reason the request can not be fulfilled, Markham and I will make every effort to let folks know in this first post.
As features requests and suggestions are filled...I will mark the request, in the List, appropriately.

Please Note!!!:
No request(s) or suggestion(s) are guaranteed to be fulfilled, but every effort to investigate the possibility will be made
Nor may the final product be exactly as you may expect

If you have further questions...Do not hesitate to ask  :Thmbsup:

Regards
The Sarge


The Request and Suggestions List (aka. The List)


Note: On the "Issues" Tab, at "Filter", select "All" and then click on "Apply" to see all the current Issues, otherwise some will remain hidden by default.

Ability to add "Docklets" from other Launchers: (Accepted)
Status: http://redmine.dcmembers.com/issues/59
This is self explanatory, and is being looked at carefully by Markham.
This will take some time, as entire code re-writes will be needed.

Option to turn off "Snap to" Dock option:
(Completed: V1.5)
Suggested by: Boiiwonda
Date: 01/17/2010

Status: http://redmine.dcmembers.com/issues/57
This would be an elective option in settings
To turn on/off the Snap to Circle Dock, when the dock re-appears after being hidden.
This functionality would work when Circle Dock is Locked (Anchored) to a specific location.

Option to have Circle Dock appear at last shown location, instead of follow cursor: (Completed: V1.5)
Suggested by: Boiiwonda
Date: 01/17/2010

Status: http://redmine.dcmembers.com/issues/57
This would be an elective option in settings.
This would work while Circle Dock is not Locked (Anchored) to a specified position.
This would allow an equivalent to drag and drop for Circle Dock.
This would in effect be like Locking CD in Place without locking, so if  I Last opened Circle Dock on the left side of the screen and click the center button on the right, Circle Dock will appear in the last appeared location.

Add "Lock Location" to Circle Dock context menu: (Completed: V1.5)
Suggested by: sgtevmckay
Date: 01/17/2010

Status: http://redmine.dcmembers.com/issues/58
Add option, similar to Automatically Hide. to the right click menu.
This function would be equivalent to the settings option: Lock Dock At Current Position.
Located in the Right click menu (Context Menu) Immediately below Automatically Hide

Adjustable Zoom Feature for icons and text: (Suggested)
Suggested by: Arekku (LifeHacker)
Date: 1/21/2010

Status: http://redmine.dcmembers.com/issues/66
This would add an adjustable zoom option similar to that of Object Dock and Rocket dock, when icons are hovered over.

Toggle Circle Dock appearance/disappearance as a Windows Context Menu Option (Rejected)
Suggested by: dkazaz
Date: 1/23/2010

Status: http://redmine.dcmembers.com/issues/65
Add the ability to toggle Circle Dock's appearance/disappearance utilizing the Windows Desktop Context menu.
Quote from suggester:
"I'd love to be able to right click the desktop and have Circle Dock as an option on the context menu (ideally the first one)."

"always on top" option in tray icon context menu (Also for CD Context Menu) (Suggested)
Suggested by: joiwind
Date: 02/07/2010

Status: http://redmine.dcmembers.com/issues/77
Add to CD and Systems Tray Icon Context menu...ability to toggle "Always on Top"

Remember the last icon directory (Suggested)
Suggested by: Padz
Date: 02/07/2010

Status: http://redmine.dcmembers.com/issues/78
Quote
The program remembers the last file folder but always reset the icon folder to default and this is quite annoying for people like me who have a folder with all icons for different apps.
I have also thrown in a related request to be attached to this one:
Quote
I am also going to see if we can get Circle Dock to copy Icons to Circle Dock Icon Folder(s).

    * This would help maintain the portability of The Icons, and Circle Dock, when the appropriate Icon is not available when Circle Dock is in use on other systems.
    * This would also reduce system resource use, as Circle Dock will not have to scour the system looking for Icons.
    * this may also increase the speed of Circle Dock. As Icons could then selectively be made part of the core folders, and Circle Dock may be able to load the Icons faster
    * See if this can be done with a pop-up question: "Do you want to copy this Icon to the Default Circle Dock Icon folder?" If moved, then the Icon that was coppied, is teh Icon used and not the icon from the remote file

not sure if this falls under docklets... but maybe support for animated icons? I think this might of been mentioned before, but I was wondering if it was possible. not sure what kind of file would have transparency though....

or perhaps mouseover animations...

Unfortunately this is a docklet.
Created by a winmatrix member several years ago.
We will have to wait for docklet compatibility for this one

You idea is well received  8)
I keep my primary icons in a completely different folder(s) as well  :D

I am also going to see if we can get Circle Dock to copy Icons to Circle Dock Icon Folder(s).

Hi,
 now the arg "-show" shows all the instances of CD. It is possible to restrict this option only on CircleDock.exe where -show is used?
Thanks
Part of the inhumanity of the computer is that, once it is competently programmed and working smoothly, it is completely honest.

Unlikely I'm afraid. The Centre Button is a member of a completely different set of classes to those which Dock Items belong. For reasons which will become apparent later, the Centre Button's use and functionality will remain pretty much as it is.

Yup, next update (v1.53). There's also a "-showall" parameter available too.

oh well... thanks for hearing me out  :Thmbsup:
I do have a few more though  :)
not sure if this falls under docklets.... but maybe the ability to toggle visibility of individual rings through icons in the dock?
...or the ability to rearrange the dock items through drag and drop?

Please read the help pages - specifically "How do I re-order Dock Items?"
