just stumbled into LBC since it promises what I am looking for...
I have programmed a lot of little scripts (I use a program named shortcut; www.typer.de;
freeware for personal use but limited in number of "macros") that help me in daily work which has to be done repeatedly. Many apply to one or two programs (of a considerable number of different programs I have to use). I prefer to have a one-click-access to most of them, and some which I use more rarely could be put into a submenu. This means that the feature "switchable submenu" and calling these submenus by specially designed tabs
--- as described here: http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=20317.0
is NOT what I would like... too many clicks and too many submenus... (however I will give it a try).
At the moment I use rocket dock (which is no longer supported) and object dock, the one on the left side, the other at the bottom of the screen. As a "submenu" I use the stack docklet.
To get the feature "dock displayed depending on active window" I change the ini-files of rocket dock / object dock by a script that is called by buttons in a submenu (stack docklet). However this change requires 1. two mouseclicks to initiate the change and 2. a shutdown and a restart of rocket dock / object dock. This costs some time. So I was quite interested when I read about LBC and multidock, however, it does not really offer the feature I described?!? Nevertheless you seem to think in this direction as I found here in the forum a thread concerning the display of a specific launchbar when an usb stick is inserted... http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=21678.0
In short, what I suggest:
(or a set of launchbars)
which is specific to a program
(or a set of programs, or a specific situation like the insertion of an external drive/usb stick)
is automatically displayed if the program
(or one of a defined set of programs)
is started or activated...
