Circle Dock / Re: About Shortcuts
« on: January 20, 2009, 08:09 AM »
As far as I know, that is not possible.
I don't know whether you like the idea, but I use StrokeIt (that's a freeware mouse gesture program) and have all the keyboard shortcuts I frequently used assigned to mouse gestures. This way I can bring up the dock by just drawing a vertical line with my mouse. It takes a little time to set things up but once everything is runnig it will revolutionize your way of using your system.  :Thmbsup:

Circle Dock / Re: How do you place folders and files onto the dock?

Acutally, it's supposed to work on XP as well, if you have the full .NET Framework 3.xx installed. I don't think there's active support for that, though.

Thanks for the excurse! Becoming a software engineer myself (although not as advanced as you guys seem to be  ;D) I really dig getting to know all this.

On a sidenote: It might be a known issue but sometimes CircleDock produces a funny bug on my rig- See attachment for details. It works as intended, only the background Image appears somewhere else.
Funny thing though: If I run any of the applications from my App-dock, the problem goes away whereas on my game dock, the problem stays until restart of the application.

I'm using it on my standard notebook and I absolutely love it. I wonder why this hasn't been done before. I dare say that this is the one application that is going to revolutionize my personal way of using a PC.

Now if you'd include the circular task manager, I'd be glad to pay for this  8) Come on, make it happen!  :)

Edit: I know, it's not really something that should bother you, but do you think there would be a way to make CircleDock work with Virtual Desktop Applications like DexPot?
Right now, the situation is as follows:
You are on say the second (virtual) desktop and want CircleDock to appear. You push the according buttons and it does appear. On the first (real) desktop though. No you can juggle windows between various desktops and so can you do with circle dock, the only problem being that only the selected part gets thrown to the other desktop, as in you klick on the ring and hit the keys to move it to desktop 2 and indeed it goes there. It's just that the buttons and items stay on the first desktop.
As I said, I suppose this might not really be in the center of your interest- I thought I would share, though.

Circle Dock / Re: Elliptical Circle Dock Works!

You can add a command to the registry that runs Circle Dock on Startup. If you are using Vista, do the following:

  • Bring up the command prompt
  • Type "regedit" (without the quotes)
  • Use the explorer to the left to navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>Software>Microsoft>Windows>Current Version>Run
  • Right click the "Run" folder and select "New > String"
  • Assign a name to the new string by renaming it i.e. CircleDock
  • Double click the created string and enter the path of the application executeable into the field in the window
  • Click OK and you're done

If you copy CircleDock to another folder as well, you can also use this method to run various instances of the application if you create a new sting for each respective .exe. I did so in order to have one Dock for applications and one for my games.

Circle Dock / Re: [Suggestion] Task Manager
« on: September 26, 2008, 08:15 AM »
I have most of the code to put a task manager into Circle Dock but haven't had the time to do it yet.

Bam! You, sir, would be my very personal hero if you did that!!  :Thmbsup:

Circle Dock / Big Thank you and some minor contribution

I really need to thank you for developing Circle Dock. Using it is so neat and easy, after only one day of using it I can hardly remember how I could have done without that  :D It's also cool that you can run various instances of it. For anyone who likes to fiddle around with things, try StrokeIt (Freeware mouse gesture app) in conjunction with Circle Dock. That also ends the problem of losing focus when pushing the middle mouse button plus you can run various instances at once and have all of them appear and disappear in no time! :)

Anyway, since there didn't seem to be a german language file I decided to make one as a little thank you!
Keep up the good work! I'm looking forward to the progress on this project!

(Now all I still need is a Circle Dock for task switching  ;D)
