Circle Dock / Re: Circle Dock 0.9.2 Alpha 8 is Released for Translation
« on: September 12, 2008, 10:18 AM »
I forget to tell you another issue at Alpha 8, when every time I click on the icon and than icon will invisible a little bit, only one way back to normal is restart circle dock.

The icons fade away as you click on them? That's something I have not seen yet and I can seem to reproduce it on XP or Vista.

This is a very weird problem. It seems to only affect XP machines and not Vista ones. Maybe I will just have to take out the Always on Bottom option.

Ok, I've just tested the Z-level thing on a virtual machine using Windows XP Pro SP2 and I'm getting that sustained high CPU usage but it doesn't do it on my Vista machine. I'll see what the problem is.

Hmm, I'm not seeing the high CPU usage on my end but for point (1), I was debugging the program and forgot to uncomment some code to make it update live. I will fix this for the official release. For point (2), I'll see if I can get it to seek the target from a shortcut but I didn't think about doing that before.

Circle Dock / Re: Circle Dock 0.9.2 Alpha 7 Discussion
« on: September 12, 2008, 12:01 AM »
V.I.P., I have to say this is a wonderful program, and a great alternative to ObjectDock.  I recently d/l a circle dock for DesktopX, but it was pretty much featureless.  Just launched like 6 pre picked files, and no rotation.  I give this  :up:  :up: !!!  I can't stop customizing it, I'm working on a few Vista Glass Style rings, but I have 2 questions.  One is, what is the purpose of the skin files with the backgrounds and seperators??  Maybe I just missed a feature somewhere in the menu.  The second is, I like the Idea that someone posted about the clock as a center button/image.  I put it around my sidebar clock and positioned it in the middle of my desktop, set the center to totally opaque, and disabled the mouse point location, it looks really cool, would like it to be permanently located in the center of my desktop, maybe with a hot key to call it on top of windows when I need it.  Any chance of getting some docklets later on down the line like OD??  It would be cool to use the center for a multiple docklet, everytime you click it, it will toggle between clock, calendar/ date, weather, maybe even a cpu meter??  This is going to be a huge, helpful, and useful app, I believe the possibilities are pretty much endless right now, just a matter of time.  Thanx, and I am glad to be using this, and will be directing many ppl here to try it out.  LoL, Damn, sorry for such a long and wordy comment, I'm hopped up on caffiene right now.

Thanks for trying Circle Dock out. If you want to permanently locate Circle Dock at one spot, you should get Alpha 8 (to be officially released this Sunday): http://circledock.wi...ebugAndTranslate.zip

One of the new features is an option to lock the position of the dock to one spot. This is found under Settings -> Location. You may also want to set Circle Dock to "Always on Bottom" under Settings -> General.

I included the "Skins" folder because in the near future, I want to add a straight line option to the Shapes settings panel and it would use these skins for the background just like Rocket Dock and Object Dock. They are not used right now but it is better I include them ahead of time so they are there when I want to deploy a new feature.

After I finished version 0.9.2, the first thing I will look at is adding support for docklets, either the Object Dock variety or if I have to, a version of my own. However, I definitely prefer to reuse existing docklets if at all possible. I hope I can work out how Object Dock handles it's docklets.

Hi again.

I worked out that you used C# after the last post (sorry!). I did comment out the items in MainForm.designer.cs and TransparentObject.cs and a couple of others i came across and this did fix the context menu appearing on the menu itself, however the tray icon still had it's context menu. I'll keep playing around, but since i am not proficient in C# i don't wan't to muck around too much in case i break something :D

I will eagerly await Sunday's new build, if you could assist me with the source after that i will be very appreciative!

Keep up the awesome work.

To get rid of the context menu for the tray icon, comment out this.MainFormTrayIcon.ContextMenuStrip = this.MainFormContextMenuStrip; in MainForm.Designer.cs.

I'll make up a sort of "kiosk" version of Circle Dock after Sunday and post it on the Circle Dock website.

Great! That's good news.

Could you tell me what would be a good compiler to use? (Since i'm not a programmer as such)

Thx again :D



Circle Dock is written using http://www.microsoft...com/express/vcsharp/

To take away the context menus, you will have to search for the word ContextMenu through the project and comment out the code that deals with it. You will need to do this for MainForm.Designer.cs and TransparentObject.cs. The other parts of the code don't need to be touched. For TransparentObject.cs, you will also need to look under the ...MouseUp(...) type functions and comment out the code relating the context menus.

If you are willing to wait, I could probably do it for you sometime after this Sunday's official release of Alpha 8.

Circle Dock / Circle Dock 0.9.2 Alpha 8 is Released for Translation
« on: September 11, 2008, 10:57 PM »
Circle Dock 0.9.2 Alpha 8 is available at http://circledock.wi...ebugAndTranslate.zip for the language translators and for people who want to grab it early. This is not listed on the Circle Dock website yet and I haven't written up the change log for it. Note that you will need updated language files. I have included the updated English.ini file in the Languages folder and I hope the language translators see this message.

The previous language files are included but the language translators will have to update the lines that show ?????, which indicates a new translation is needed.

Circle Dock / Re: Problems Launching
« on: September 11, 2008, 10:54 PM »
Could you provide a screenshot of the "where I want to move items" message? I don't think I've seen that in Windows before and I know Circle Dock doesn't have that in the code. Also, how did you determine that Circle Dock is taking the links from "Document and Settings" instead of your desktop?

You should try out Circle Dock 0.9.2 Alpha 8 (to be officially released this coming Sunday): http://circledock.wi...ebugAndTranslate.zip. It has some code changes and bug fixes that may help.

Ok, for those of you that are having trouble opening the icon links, try out Circle Dock 0.9.2 Alpha 8: http://circledock.wi...ebugAndTranslate.zip

Note that is release doesn't have all the updated language files but the English one is completed.

« on: September 10, 2008, 01:18 PM »
I have one quick question, is there a way i can set the dock up and then remove the right-click menu so my staff can't modify it once I have it customized?

Thx once again, an invaluable tool  :D

There is no option to do this through the program, but you could always go into the source code and comment out the lines that say this.ContextMenu = ..... and then there won't be any more right-click menus, even in the tray icon. I recommend waiting until this Sunday to do it because that is when Alpha 8 is definitively going to be released with some bug fixes and some new features.

Circle Dock / Re: Can you think of a way to add tabs to the circle?
« on: September 10, 2008, 01:15 PM »
You could just see tabs as different looking folders; or as buttons that trigger a menu with contents varying according to the tab.

Yes, you can view tabs as a version of folders but I think that there will still be the need of code to assign what content each tab has and there would be a desire to keep every item in the tabs rendered so that they can be called up quickly instead of the lag that is created by opening up a dock folder since it has to create each new item.

I would prefer to try this after Alpha 9 since it will have better performance due to multi-threading and the creation time lag may not be as much of an issue.

Side Note: Alpha 8 is definitively going to be released this coming Sunday (Sept. 14th, 2008). I have made a note on the Circle Dock website and I'm going to be e-mail the translators tonight with Alpha 8 to see if they can update their translations.

I tried your AHK script out and I'm wondering if there is a way for you to have a timer on it so that you can capture the left-mouse click so it doesn't get sent to other applications?

Circle Dock / Re: Can you think of a way to add tabs to the circle?
« on: September 10, 2008, 12:28 AM »
If you want tabs, it would mean that you should create a new tab object class that inherits the perpixelalphaform class like what the objects in TransparentObject.cs do. You would then create these new tab objects and set the parent of them to the centre object. You would have to alter the code in PositionCurrentLevel(...) in MainForm.cs to position the tabs on the dock since each element of the dock is a separate object.

You would have to add in a function that handles the event of when one of the tabs is clicked to hide the other tabs. You will also need to create arrays to hold references to your tab objects and their sub-items like what I use MainDockObjects for in MainForm.cs.

Looking back at this, it may not be all that trivial because you would have to make a lot of alterations.

Circle Dock / Re: Circle Dock 0.9.2 Alpha 7 Discussion
« on: September 10, 2008, 12:19 AM »
Here's an interesting bug.  Launch the dock, then left-click and hold the mouse button down on the center icon.  While holding the mouse button down, hit your keyboard shortcut to toggle the dock.  The rest of the dock will disappear but the icon that is currently being clicked will remain.

I've also attached my auto-hotkey script to launch circledock by holding down the left mouse button followed by pressing the right one.  Note: your circledock keyboard toggle must be set to CTRL-ALT-Z for this to work.


Ok, I just fixed that bug for Alpha 8. I hope to get this out soon. It doesn't have everything I wanted done but there are enough useful features and bug fixes for a new release. I just have to get the translators to translate it to their languages.

As for your AutoHotkey script, I think quite a few people would be interested in that. I'll have to try it out!

I will try changing the file execution code a bit for Alpha 8 to see if it will help you guys (Using System.Diagnostics.Process.Start instead of ShellExecuteEX). Strange.

Perhaps this is a problem caused by the native language of your OS since I see you have Chinese Simplified and there may be language conflicts with English. I wonder what the native OS language of the other users with problems are?

272
Circle Dock / Re: Help? Circle Dock not launching properly
« on: September 09, 2008, 01:56 PM »
What OS do you have and what version of .Net do you have on your computer? Also, what is the native language used by your operating system?

Below is the code used to launch the links for each of the icons:
Code: C# [Select]
  1. if (Path.StartsWith(@"::{"))
  2.             {
  3.                 Pinvoke.Win32.ShellExecute(IntPtr.Zero, "open", Path, "", "", Pinvoke.Win32.ShowCommands.SW_SHOW);
  4.             }
  5.             else
  6.             {
  7.                 try
  8.                 {
  9.                     System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo ProcInfo = new System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo(@Path);
  10.                     ProcInfo.UseShellExecute = true;
  11.                     ProcInfo.WorkingDirectory = null;
  12.                     ProcInfo.WorkingDirectory = System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName(@Path);
  13.                     Win32.Shell32.ShellExecuteInfo ShExInfo = new Win32.Shell32.ShellExecuteInfo();
  14.                     ShExInfo.fMask = Constants.ShellExecuteInfoConst.SEE_MASK_INVOKEIDLIST | Constants.ShellExecuteInfoConst.SEE_MASK_HMONITOR;
  15.                     //ShExInfo.dun.hMonitor = Pinvoke.Win32.MonitorFromPoint(Cursor.Position, (uint)Pinvoke.Win32.MONITOR_DEFAULTTONEAREST);
  16.                     ShExInfo.hwnd = (int)System.Diagnostics.Process.GetCurrentProcess().MainWindowHandle;
  17.                     ShExInfo.lpFile = ProcInfo.FileName;
  18.                     ShExInfo.lpDirectory = ProcInfo.WorkingDirectory;
  19.                     ShExInfo.lpParameters = ProcInfo.Arguments;
  20.                     ShExInfo.lpVerb = "open";
  21.                     ShExInfo.nShow = 1;
  22.                     ShExInfo.cbSize = System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.SizeOf(ShExInfo);
  23.                     Win32.Shell32.Shell32API.ShellExecuteEx(ShExInfo);
  24.                 }
  25.                 catch (Exception)
  26.                 {
  27.                     MessageBox.Show(Language.ErrorMessages.FilePathMissingInvalid + @": " + Path, Language.General.CircleDockName);
  28.                 }
  29.             }

Can anyone see what may be causing the problem? A message box should show up if there is an exception but I don't think you guys are getting any.

Circle Dock / Re: [Suggestion] Task Manager
« on: September 09, 2008, 11:49 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. It's getting busy with University classes again.

As for using a combination of mouse clicks to toggle Circle Dock, I don't think it would be feasible to implement because you would then have a delay in all the mouse clicks you make as the program waits for a second click or no click. I've tried this thing before and I've found it to be annoying.

However, you may want to give http://www.highrez.c...useButtonControl.htm a try to remap your mouse buttons or use it to do a combination that toggles Circle Dock.

Circle Dock / Re: Can you think of a way to add tabs to the circle?
« on: September 09, 2008, 11:46 AM »
It is feasible to program Circle Dock to function in tabbed mode but I'm not ready to alter the code to do that yet because the rendering of a background arc may be a problem and you would have to keep all the items in each of the tabs rendered and hidden except for the one you are looking at. This is slightly different from the way Circle Dock works right now. I'll take a look at the feasibility of this after Alpha 9 when performance should be better.

As for becoming 3D, I think that would be cool to look at but incredibly hard to program to make it functional!

Are there any error messages that pop up?

Could one of you download http://www.microsoft...com/express/vcsharp/ and use that to run (in debug mode) the Circle Dock 0.9.2 Alpha 7.4 source code found at: http://ericw.dcmembe...ha7.4_SourceCode.zip

This should help to pinpoint what is happening by providing an error message when there is something unhandled.
