Stacks Docklet


Recommended Posts

Hi Matonga,

I'm quite satisfied with this last version now. To me all the main issues have been solved

What remains to be done is the problem with two stacks, clicking on one after the other the first one closes, the second opens but the dock zooms out.

Concerning the long filenames problem, maybe you could at least allow more horizontal space for the filenames.

see that page : http://www.tech-recipes.com/rx/2630/leopar...folder_grid_fan

Apparently, filenames with at about 16 characters should be able to display normally on one line.

BTW, just for the sake of aesthetics, I seems grid mode has small a arrow pointing to the

docklet icons ?

@matonga: I don't know if your aware but i think you may have a bandwidth issue with your hosting site. I tried to head over to your page to grab the update but couldn't be found.

Also i don't know if this is your account or not but i'd take a look at this if you weren't aware:

Anyway that you can upload the current build to DockEx.com

@chatpristi:

Yes, small arrow didn't appear in Leopard tour so that's why Stack Docklet doesn't have one :)

Icons in Mac are much bigger, even the font is bigger, but I want to keep it in some way that it will fit fine in a PC.

@sei-aidyn:

It says 404 page not found? Or it says something else?

If it says 404 page not found then it's not a bandwidth issue.

(anyway I should check number of downloads, because I don't know how many downloads the file has).

That's not my account. Mine is matonga (http://matonga.deviantart.com/) (nothing worth to see in my personal page)

Even though the one who posted it didn't ask for my permission, he left the "Developed by Matías Moreno" and "http://www.matiasmoreno.com.ar/" intact in the settings dialog, so I will not take it much seriously (the _by_Anarchj is appended automatically by deviantART).

@af14:

Error de nombre demasiado largo... mmm... tendría que ver.

Sólo por casualidad... la carpeta en el dock la tenés configurada como X:AlgunaCarpeta o X:AlgunaCarpeta con barra al final? (podés tener problemas si tiene barra al final)

(translation: trying to solve a "Name too large" error).

@ matonga: Something strange happened after I logged in on Windows [Vista]:

My second Stack Docklet disappeared. Well, it actually did not disappeared, but it looked like I've just added it to the Dock with no link to a folder nor a custom icon.

I linked the Docklet to "G:[My Username]". Maybe it's because of the last backslash...

@ matonga: I've found another bug: Global settings for text just works in "Grid"-Mode, not with "Fan". I renamed "Open Folder" in the change only appears in my Docklet with Grid-Mode. Restarting RocketDock didn't help either.

But hey: I really love your nice little app :).

Btw: Will you add the little arrow for the Docklet soon?

Hi, I've downloaded and installed the last version on rocketdock and rk launcher.

it works fine in rocketdock, but not in rk launcher...if i try to add docklet, i've only the recyclebin in the list, stacks docklet is not present.

How can i resolve this problem?

@szekelya:

Is Service Pack 4 installed in your Win2K? Just to confirm. In such case, I can't give support for 48x48 icons in Windows 2000 :(

Can you actually set Explorer in Windows 2000 to show 48x48 icons?

@DZGH_Operator:

Fan mode uses the "%d more..." text, not the "Open folder" text.

I won't be adding the little arrow any soon, or may be I'll do it optional, as it seems I didn't leave enough space in the borders and will have to adapt some code (hard stuff to do at this point, scheduled for later, sorry).

@af14:

Mmm... no idea. I don't know how to reproduce the error. May I PM you a test version of Stack Docklet to get a closer look to the problem?

@nickdc:

Is the docklet in the right folder? It should be under the docklets folder under it's own folder. BTW take into account I have never installed RKLauncher... ^-^;;

Edit: I just installed RK Launcher to test:

1. Extract the StackDocklet folder into the RKLauncher's Docklets folder (extract the folder itself, not it's contents).

2. In RK Launcher, right click and select Add Docklet...

3. In the right pane "Docklet Information", for Type choose ObjectDock Docklet.

4. Now StackDocklet appears in the Docklets list (with a horrible Delphi default icon!!! Oh f**ck hahahaahaha).

5. Select the icon and click on Add to Dock.

6. Now close the dialog, right click the docklet icon, and set the settings to your wish.

Note: if you open and close the stack twice, RK Launcher goes crazy trying to drag & drop the docklet icon or something like that. (???) I would contact the author but... last release is from about July 2005?

Thanks bro, it works very good right now! Awesome app! ;)

Matonga,

THANK YOU for this awesome app. I am using it with Object Dock and so far it is working the way it should.

One thing: is it possible to add drag and drop functionality? I mean, drag a folder onto the stacks icon (instead of going through the dialog box) to add it.

Again, thanks so so much.

@nickDC : Go into "my computer" and right click on the folder you want the icon to change. Select "properties" and then click the "customise" tab. Go to Change icon and select an icon you want to use. It has to be an icon tho' not a png. Once youve done that you need to restart your dock for it to be recognised. :)
