Well I have completely switched from using RocketDock & Rk Launcher to using Circle Dock and to my surprise, its freaking awsome. Not only do I have a clutter free desktop, but I also just saved up some ram as well.

I however am still using RocketDock to just just minimize the windows because I don't like using the Windows default taskbar. When CircleDock finally gets the minimize to dock option, then I'll be using CircleDock as my primary launcher and management of work.

Keep up the good work!

Whoa man,
the updates are always coming out which shows your squashing those bugs and making things easier to use. OMG your dock is getting better and better. Great great job man!

Yes I can second that to. Eric you need to fix this if you have not already. When you click the middle (you know the big circle) it shows the start menu. When you click away it shows the outline. I have been meaning to ask about this but since this person here beat me to it, it looks like I am not the only one with this problem.

The problem is know: https://www.donation...ex.php?topic=14478.0 and you can solve it by turning off the "Show shadows under menus" option in your Windows visual styles settings. By default, all the new Circle Dock builds come with the start menu option disabled and there is a warning message under the option to enable it.

I haven't been able to find a solution yet and have asked others but they don't know either. I know that the Object Dock docklets can open up the start menu without problems but none of them are open source so I'm not getting much luck.  :( :(

I am sure you will find the problem eventually and fix it. Anyway thank you for the tip on turning it off. Those damn shadows are a bit annoying somethings, so I think I'll turn em off.

But i have an erro to report maybe you can see to it
When i click the windows orb in the middle the menu start pop'sup, that's all fine, but when i close the menu start there the outline stays on my screen,

I've created the ideas/mockups page on the Circle Dock website:

I have those images hosted on Photobucket, so I am not sure if the bandwidth will be drained but if so, you might wanna save em and upload them elsewhere. But yeah, those images are yours if you want them, just mockups anyway. Nothing to fancy about em except for idea purposes.

Hello guys. Here are the mockups I had sent "VideoInPicture" and he said that he is thinking on using these ideas. Tell me what you think. I used photoshop to make these and just pretty much dragged icons to fit what I had to represent.

Suggestion 1: Media Control Playback

Ever have a media player open and wanted to control it but did not want to open the program up just to do all the controls? Well I thought that if you hold your mouse over the icon, a menu would pop out with controls and you could control your music. Now I have most laptops now have some sort of media functions on them, but not all do. I thought this would be pretty sweet.

Suggestion 2: Widgets Or Docklets

Like RocketDock & Object Dock, they both have widgets or docklets. I thought it would be cool to have something like that running. You could have a quick glance at information. Yeah I know Windows Vista has the sidebar and Mac OS X has its dashboard, so I thought something like this would be awsome.

Suggestion 3: Minimize & Stacks

Personally, I love the Mac OS X dock. Ever since I used the Mac the first time, that was something I instantly fell for. I find it easier to work with.
This image shows where you could minimize your open windows into the dock and you could rotate the dock to get to your minimized windows if you so choose. I also like how the new version of Mac OS X Leopard has Stacks, a way of organizing your content on the dock. So I thought that this dock should have something like that. I am a very organized person on my computer, everything is organized nicely and I know where everything is at, and so having something like this I think would make organization easier for those who are organized on their computers.

There you go guys have it, my suggestions that I had sent in. He said that once he gets a stable release, that he was thinking on using these ideas. If these ideas do get used, I have found my new favorite program. This would be my all in one launcher for my programs.
Anyway, keep up the good work Eric (VideoInPicture)

One of the best things about this site is the interaction and feedback between coders and users (the term "user" doesn't do justice to some of the people here who have made an art out of testing, feedback, and feature requests).

So welcome to the site ma5t3rw1tt and welcome to this new section for Eric's software.  :up:

Thank you very much. I have emailed him some mockups and things which I think he will post. If he don't, then I will. He told me that once he gets the software stable enough, that he will be trying to implement some of the features that I had suggested. This piece of software certainly does have potential and that is why I am trying to make this piece of software go somewhere while its still young.

And the interaction with the creator, its FREAKING AMAZING!

Hey guys, I am new here but I have been giving some neat suggestions via email. I have also sent mockups of what features he should include. He told me that he would post them if I gave him permissions which I did.

Eric (VideoInPIcture) you have my permission to post those screenshots.
