Support for "Dexpot" Virtual Desktop Manager
« on: July 05, 2010, 05:16:27 AM »
The next release - whenever that may be - will include passive support for "Dexpot" Virtual Desktop Manager. The support includes a few options directly related to Dexpot and include:
  • Ability to show an image representing the current desktop number as the Dock's Centre Button
  • Toggle to determine whether Circle Dock automatically appears when the virtual desktop changes
  • Toggle the ability to stop a switch of desktops if a Circle Dock dialog is visible

Circle Dock will not contain any built-in mechanisms for controlling Dexpot - eg switching desktops or summoning one of its dialogs. I didn't consider it necessary to provide such support since Dexpot already provides (better) mechanisms for all of these.

Markham is being incredibly modest  :-*

Here is a few shots to really whet the appetite

Dexpot Off

A cupey prize to anyone who can actually grasp the entire concept of what our beloved Markham has done  :tellme:

Removed the current desktop link to only show those desktops you can switch to :P
as well as change the center button to reflect what desktop you are on

added options in for the different features for dexpot as well as upon starting the program it creates or shows the options then upon close it hides them?  :tellme: it basically allows for the complete control of dexpot through CD
also fixed problem of CD minimizing while switching desktops :D
adds the showing of certain programs to show on certain desktops?

We will release the next version when it is ready but that depends on Dexpot. Circle Dock makes use of API features which are not yet in the current shipping release of that product.
