Circle Dock supports touch screens fully and there is a specific mode for that - "Kiosk Mode". That mode locks the Dock's configuration completely - meaning no changes, additions or deletions.

The only thing missing is the ability to make CD Spin.
Albeit this is a Visual "Eye Candy" thing and not absolutely necessary, but may be a great way to bring CD fully into the touch screen arena


Currently at $205.00 USD in donations  :Thmbsup:

Approximately $125.00 to go minimum  :tellme:

MAJOR ERROR . . .


i dont know if its my settings or my dual video cards or what . . i did hear that there may be some probs iwth the touchscreen mimo 720-s and displaylink techonology if theres more then one video card installed . . reason being is that tehres an actual vido card buil into the mini mimo monitor.

well the error is . . whenever i restartmy pc the touchscreen capabilities of my mimo 720-s disaprears lol..... i have to reinstall the mimo touchscreen windows 7 drivers in order for it to work . . i have an email into mimo support . . but i remember reading somewhere that dual video cards are unssuported . . at the moment i dont have the time to test it out with only one video . . well i can tomorow whenim at work . . it also my be only a problem with windows 7 64 bit.

so to recap theres an errror with the mim720-s touchscreen mini monitor to the effect that whenever the PC is restarted the touchscreen capabilities no longer work. a reinstall of the driver is requierd to get it operational. any suggestions would be great

OS=windows7 64bit (may be the problem but cant test it only have 3 pc's all with 64 bit, besides my netbook witch i will try tomorrow)
Dual geforce 9800 gtx's  (SLI DISABLED)- HDMI out to TV DVI to main monitor and VGA to secondary monitor  (witch may effect the touchscreen capabilities)
4 gigs ram
4 gigs readyboost

No problem.

Also something to keep in mind is that it appears that the drivers and software are all 32bit.
Though they claim this should not be an issue, it may create a few.

I am do not see what issues multi-graphics cards would create, but what do I know  :tellme:

OK back up and running but i dont dare restart my PC till i figure this out . . i uninstalled the drivers i downloaded and installed the ones off the CD that acme with it . when i uninstalled them initially because they werent working on startup well the touchscreen part but i wanted to reinstall completly, pretty much all of my shortcuts were missing from my start menu (i know right????) nothing i woudl do would let me my start menu shortcuts within my startmenu . . nothign was showing up when i searched either . . i tired a system rester, witch igot a BSOD, fun times . . . thank goodness for my 4tb windows home server that backs up everything via network . . so i popped my Restore thumb drive in and pulled my image off the server and restored . . got everything back up and running and installed off the CD this time. . . gonna mess with it more tommorow . .if anyone else gets a mimo touchscreen let me know if you have these problems

lol when you download the windows 7 64bit drivers its labeld windows 7 BETA.exe   might take a lil while for full support.

Ok i figured out what my problem was with my mimo 6720-s touchscreen not having its touchscreen capabilities when i restarted my PC. . . .

aprently i was correct in thinking that Dual video cards would bug this monitor out. as you saw in my video i have my flatscreen LCD TV hooked up via HDMI into my PC . . when i first installed it and had all three original monitors initiated everything worked fine . .but when i restarted my touchscreencapabilities would go away. (not really, ill explain)
Well after much tinkering i found out that the touch screen capabilities werent going away but now when i touched my mimo monitor i saw the mouse moving on my TV lol . .as soon as i disconnected the TV from my PC via the screen resolution option in windows & everything worked fine and iw as able to touch my Mimo and it worked perfectly fine . .

this really isnt a problem for me now that i know what was causeing it . .i mean my TV is only on the computer setting when im watching a movie . . i mean how much touching can you do while watching a movie lol . .

I'm using a samsung Q1 7 inch touchscreen computer with circle dock. It's pretty nice so far.
With a little work, a touchscreen with circle dock could work like this:



Tell me that isn't a dreamy thought! The few things you'd need really are animated dock backgrounds, the option to cluster icons a certain direction instead of them spreading out as far as possible, Folder expand and contract when pulled away from and towards the center button respectively, and rotating icons by grab and drag.

Ultimately, you'd have a pretty bad ass dock that blows the competition out of the water.

Greetings chapmanbobby
Welcome to Circle Dock and Donationcoder. It is good to have you here  ;D

That video is pretty slick  ;)
I am curious as to how much of Circle Dock would have to change in order to accommodate something similar.

I fear there is more than what you have outlined from a coding perspective, but you are correct; this would be a Kick A$$ dock adaption(s) for Circle Dock  :Thmbsup:

I could imagine the process would be pretty complex. Even the grab and drag alone for icons could really make a HUGE difference on a touch screen machine. Here's my setup:
Circle Dock 2.bmp
Docked to the side I can scroll through my apps. It's usable as is on the Q1 as the up and down arrows let me rotate the wheel. But an intuitive smooth scrolling wheel of applications is just what a good touchscreen machine needs.  :D
