HideDesk requests ..
« on: November 05, 2006, 09:25:34 PM »
hi,

finally found your great app here - after losing trace of another piece of freeware doing the exact same thing several years ago with the same name.

a couple of "features" this app had was firstly a delay setting for how long it waited once your mouse was over the desktop before the icons were shown - and a similar setting for how long the icons would stay revealed for.

this would both prevent icons "coming and going" when the mouse was simply skirting past but also enable greater interaction with the icons once shown (e.g. if you're dragging sth to/from the desktop over the top of an open window).

anyhoo - let me know what you think or can do in this respect ..! ;)

cheers ..

I think there is need for another feature or two. I won't call it a bug because its not really, but kind of is.
Firstly, it hides all my yahoo widgets along with the icons. I know its "hide desktop" so I'm guessing either upgrade it or create a new app called "hide icons".
Finally, it seems unable to run with madotate (3d visualisation software for windows) and produces some rather weird effects, as in basically disabling all input to any window. You have to close hide desktop to work in any window again.

Any chance you can update this?
I would offer to donate but I also have no money as I'm a student. I may actually join donation coder when I'm good enough! =D

I have a copy of that "original" hidedesk that you refer to.
