  1. @Matonga: Thanks for the Info! I would love to make this platform independent, but I never coded in C++ or C before, so I can't really use GCC, and I never did something platform independent before. Anyway, this might be a good chance to try it, even if it will take a lot longer Have you any experience in X-Coding with Lazarus? This could be my first choice. SDL supports Pascal, so there should be no problem here (besides, that this is new for me, too )
  2. Does anybody know how to draw a String with Alignment = Justify via GDIPlus? PS: I attached 2 interface-sketches
  3. Hey Matonga, Sure, it would be great if you could implement the flapping Yeah, Gdi+ was what i thought, too. I'm only frightened how to do intends, spacings etc... But I'll try. I will do some Interface-Sketches and maybe start with the coding in the next days, then post my progress here. For Your DirectX flapping, I guess you will need the GBitmaps of the currently shown and the previous/next pages, right? Cheers and Bon Appetite
  4. Hi Developers , I want to discuss an Application, that I'm thinking about these days... I haven't started yet, I only have the idea, and need some ideas on how to approach the realization. Programming language will be Delphi, Windows the OS. Main Target Systems are "Netbook" Computers (Small Laptops with lower Screen resolution and lower performance). Project Description: I'm a big fan of Free Books and Literature, like they are available on Wikisource.org etc. One thing i really miss while reading Text online, is the aesthetic feeling. Reading a text like this in the browser is just not very pleasing. So i want to write an Application, that shows any plain-text (maybe rtf, too) in a beautiful and book-like way. With pages, nice font & paragraphs and a page-flapping animation. It should be VERY easy to handle (not many options/customization for the end-users). It shall behave similar to this flash-application. Possible additional features would be things like: bookmarks, highlighting, search, different themes... Questions to you: Do you think, such an App would be useful? Or is there already a good solution available? How should I show the Text? Should I use TMemo, try to draw it myself on a Canvas (much more difficult), or do you know another component i could use? How can i realize the page-flapping? Any other ideas about this project? Thanks, Atreiu.
  5. Log in through the login page (Log In Icon at the header, instead using the Log-in fields in the Header directly) solves both problems I can choose my Visible-Status and I'm being redirected to the last page I was on before log in Thanks you very much, Tilman!
  6. First: Thanks's a lot for the fast progress in the AS4 Skin Two questions / problems I've got with the new software: 1.) If I'm not logged in, and browse to any Subforum, Topic or Post, then I decide to log in, but after I entered my Password & Username in the fields at the top, I'm back at the Forum-Index again. With the old software, I stayed at the very same Subforum, Topic or Post, just logged in now. That was much more convenient. Is this possible in Ipb, too? 2.) Is there an option to hide my online/offline status? I had one with the last software, but can't find it in Ipb.
  7. For me, everything is working fine. All PMs got transferred. So, very nice job imho! I also suggest to make the AS4-Theme the default one. Okay, it has some glitches, but it is already waaaaaay better than the default theme. I'm using it all the time and would prefer to see it, if I'm not logged in, too
  8. Hi everybody, I just want to tell you, that I leave this forum here, but I do not quit coding my Docklets for XWindowsDock. I setup a Google Group for discussing XWindowsDock and especially my docklets: http://groups.google.com/group/atreius-xwd-docklets You can keep Track on the changes to my Docklets here and still download my Docklets from my Skydrive. Greetings, Atreiu PS: I will be available through PM here, too, but I do not respond in the forum anymore.
  9. Hi Siik, i like your videos, they look very professional, with the transitions and everything. Please don't get me wrong, if i give you some suggestions: more than the first half of the vid (1:30min) is static and boring. You should do this part (moving over icons & show settings) in ~15-20sec, imho. Instead you should focus on the effects & features, and i miss a lot things here: * Show Fan-Stack & Menu-Stack, too. * Show Hover-Effect on Grid view. * Show more Detail on the Gallery, and here show the Wallpaper-Switch feature (right click on a image). * Show magnification * Show "Reserve Space for Dock" - feature * Show Minimize to Dock - Feature * Show Resize with dragging Separator - feature * Show Video & Image Preview (hold left click on a image / video in a stack) * Maybe you could show some docklets, too, but i don't feel comfortable in requesting this, so you can skip this. You don't have to show all of this, but i would love it, to see at as many of these features as possible, because these features are, what makes XWindowsDock really special. Unlike Panta, I really think your Videos can help promoting the Dock for Bobah, and i would be happy if you can do the official video!!! But exactly like Panta, I don't understand your constant ask for channel subscribers. Can you explain, why this is important for you? Do you get something for it or something else? I myself don't have a youtube - account, so I won't subsribe anyway. But I think other people will be more willing to subsribe, if they know the reason... But unlike Panta, I don't care, if you ask for subscribers or not. If it makes you happy
  10. Looks very nice! The new XCal final should be ready in about 1-2 days, so it would be really cool, if you could upload your skin-files, so i can include it into the release. Thanks! PS: Can i include your XCal-Icon, too?
  11. Did you read section B - 2 of the tutorial? I tried to explain the color value there, but maybe my english isn't good enough Please tell me, how I could make it more clear #FF1234 in HTML would be $003412FF in the inifile. (values for Red & Blue are switched, $00 added to the front)
  12. Sorry, like everything here in the XWindowsDock-Forum, my XCal is for XWindowsDock only. But you can take the source-code, and port it to RocketDock, if you want. (Or try to find someone else, to do it, if you can't code)
  13. Yes: From now on, XCal isn't restricted to English anymore It takes the default system language, instead. ("Februar" is just "February" in german )
  14. Hey, you are definitely a (skin-)developer! I expect a Carbon-Skin for the Mini-Cal from you, soon!
  15. Ah, cool! Thanks. That means, the animation totally depends on CPU. My CPU is bad (Celeron M), so CPU gets 95% and animation gets slow with more than 1 animations at the same time. With a CPU like yours, where the CPU doesn't peak to the top, 4 Animations are still ok. Let's hope native aPNG support will be more effective than my docklet
