angramanyu was kind enough to send me a PM and remind me that I promised to make a tutorial for him regarding teh earlier conversation.

I am here to report that once again I failed to delivered as promised  embarassed

I have been working overtime with Markham, the folks at Dexpot, and Rainmeter on a collaborative project. and I have taken on several contracts of late the occupy y time from Tuesday through Friday. So I have been limited on time.
Also I looking to track down an affordable server to handle the bandwidth that Circle Dock takes up in it's downloads, which is extreme.  tongue
This is no excuse.

to angramanyu; my apologies.
I will get this up either by the end of business today, or by the end of the weekend  undecided
I should stop everything I am doing to make this tutorial, but am knee deep in graphics requests for Circle Docks next major release.

I will get this tutorial done and out to you as soon as I can

My apologies for not doing so sooner  embarassed

This is very late, but I have time at the moment, so I will try to be quick and clear.

The object requested here is in concerns to the Audio Folder, Links, and Graphics that I utilized.
Assuming I understand the question correctly.
If not, let me know and I will pick up from here, and do another one until I get it right for you Wink


Ok, so we want the following:



So we get this:



Believe it or not, this is simply a folder with a custom Icon, and label.  Cool
So to reproduce this;
1.) Right click on Circle Dock and bring up the Context Menu



2.) Go to Add > Dock Folder



Click on Dock Folder

3.) Wait for the Item Settings dialog


In the area marked #1 in the image above is where we want to give the new folder a name. I will simply Call Mine "Audio & Video"
You are welcome to name your folder in whatever you like  Thmbsup

4.) Once we have named our new folder, Click Finish (Area #2 Below):



5.) Now lets give our new folder a custom identifiable Icon
Right Click on your new Folder and click on Change Icon



6.) This will bring up a window so that you can search for the location of your custom Icon  Wink



Once you find the Icon you want, select it, and then click on Open

Now we have a new folder with our Custom Icon  Thmbsup



BUT WAIT; There is more.

Now that we have our new custom folder, we need to populate the folder with Audio and Video programs to Launch

So lets start by Double Click our new Folder and we will find that we have a blank Circle Folder to start with  Wink




Now lets add some Shortcuts to Audio and Visual Programs

Circle Dock is great for launching any program. Locate in the The Start Menu or Isolate; Such as Portable applications, and those that do not appear in the Windows Start Menu.

First lets start with creating Shortcuts for Start Menu Programs

At this time I am going to add Hulu Desktop, VLC and Winamp to my new Audio & Video Folder

So to this, go to the Start menu > All Programs, and find the First Program that you want in this new folder.
I will start with Hulu Desktop.

So
1.) Go to Start > All Programs and scroll through the list till you find your Program(s)



2.) Simply Hold down the left Click button on your mouse and then drag and drop the Program shortcut to Circle Dock



3.) Once you have Dragged and Dropped the shortcut to Circle Dock, you will get an Item Properties Window for the new Shortcut.



Check the Name of the shortcut, and make any changes you desire. Then click Finish

NOTE:
If you get a Window that asks if you want to delete the old Icon, select NO!!!

Now we have our new application Launch Shortcut ready to go.



Now follow Direction 1 through 3 above to add additional Shortcuts to this Circle Dock folder  Thmbsup

I will add a couple of more and we will continue  Cool

Ok, Here is where I am at:



BUT; I want to add a program that is Portable, or at least I keep portable. This program does not appear in the Windows start menu so I need to follow a different method to get the Shortcut I need  Cool

For me I will go to the Start Menu > Computer and then navigate to the folder that has my program. In this case I want Zoom Player





Now all I do is Drag and Drop Zplayer.exe to Circle Dock.
This will bring up the Item Properties Window.
Since I do not want Zplayer to appear as the name of this shortcut, I must Change the name to Zoom Player  Wink



As above in the previous examples; Once you have changed the name, and made the adjustments you want, click Finish

Now we have some Shortcuts with seriously ugly Icons  tongue



So lets change these, but do them all at once instead of separately  Thmbsup

Changing Icons using the Icon Replacement Mode:

1.) Right Click on Circle Dock and bring up the Context menu and then go to Icon Replacement Mode



2.) This will bring up a Window for you to search out your Custom Icons. I keep all of mine a singular file, so that I know where to find them.



3.) Simply Hold Down the left Click Button and  Drag and Drop the Custom Icon over the existing Icon.
The current Icon will be replaced with the new/Custom Icon



4.) Now go ahead and Repeat steps 1 through 3 to add custom icons to the rest of your shortcuts.
Selecting custom Icons of your choosing as you go Wink

Visuals  cheesy







5.) once you are finished and satisfied with the Icons that you have for your shortcuts. Close the Window that was brought up when the Icon Replacement Mode was started

6.) Now Right Click on Circle Dock and bring up the Context Menu.
Make sure that you TURN OFF Icon Replacement Mode
Otherwise I guarantee that you will be having a fit when you go to add a new Shortcut, folder, or file  tellme



And there we have it. A freshly created Folder with Freshly created Shortcuts, and we have added Custom Icons that can be readily Identified Wink



Some Notes.
Even at this level you can add another folder. Circle Dock can go as many sub-folders as you require!

Most of my Icons come from 3 places
1.) Google Search
2.) Rocket Dock
3.) DeviantART
Or I just make the blasted things myself. More often than not using a free graphical program "Gimp"



Hopefully this is what you were asking about and I have fulfilled your needs in the tutorial. If not let me know soon, and I can do another tomorrow. I think I will be free  embarassed

My deepest apologies for how long it has taken me to get this to all of you

Regards
The Sarge

No need to feel stupid friend.
We all start somewhere.
The time was not at all wasted since it has helped you, and hopefully others as well.  Kiss
That is time well spent to me  Thmbsup
