Small bug report:

when hovering over the icons and moving swiftly away from the dock, the icon label remains visible.

same thing hapening with magnification (i have it off for this reason), icon remains magnified in stack when mouse runs away from it.

My stack icon continues grayed even after clicking the menu with the programs ... this only happens in list mode ... it would be a bug? I remember that this does not happen in version 5.2.3

I copy that. The Icon remains at the "Clicked"-Stage. Only happens on "List"-Stacks. I created a screenshot for better understanding.

That's it... thank you Atreiu ! Using 5.2.3 again.

Also noticed that after minimize or close a window, the reflection continues in the dock, it would be normal? Or this reflection should disappear at the same time that I minimize or close the window?

Can you give a screen of the icon in (not correct) action, too? I think that would make things clearer.
Unfortunately I don't have a skin that uses that icon - yet!. But by looking at the icon I've supplied it's clear that the generated stack icon would appear below the bottom of the suspended box.


Btw, the annoying bug of not showing the newly selected skin's StackOff.png is still present in this version. I've noticed that when you select a new skin, all but this image are copied from the skin file to .SkinsCurrent; then, if you exit XWD and restart it, the icon gets copied from the skin file and is then shown.

Another bug - much probably related to the first - is that when you do a clean install of XWD, StackOff.png from the (default) skin is not shown either; you have to set it manually via 'Stack Icon > Change'.


I managed to get an image:

Bobah, i found a Docklet API Bug: the X_OnDrop() is completely broken :(

It is simply not executed, when I drop something on my Icon.

I just tried to update my XDesktoplet, where the user was able to Drag&Drop files on the Docklet to copy them to the Desktop, like in the last version. Impossible, right now.

EDIT: X_OnDrop() is working fine. It was my bad, sorry! :o

This bug has existed for a while now, but when I plug an external drive of any sort (usb key, etc), the dock chokes when I click on my computer.

This doesn't happen when I click on desktop icon, so it's the dock :)

anyone else experiencing this?

By Panta: merged. No need for double posting; use 'Edit' instead.

This has nothing to do with your conversation right now, but the dock should re-calculate icon size for stack animation every step, due to zoom and stuff. You can really see the bug if you set magnification to something huge and click on a stack: the icons start of tiny :P

I reported earlier that with Explorer, Folder Options->Show Hidden files (Enabled) & Hide Protected Operating System Files (UNCHECKED) Produced (=) Gallery Mode Stack & Dock Freeze.

However, now I'm not so sure this was the problem as I just experienced another (reproducible) freeze (Dock "Not Responding") event. (See Screenshot for description and how to reproduce.)


Hope this helps.

Is this everything you need?


And crestock-75773-2560x1600.jpg (width and height of second picture in gallery ) = 2560x1600

If you need more info, just let me know.

Oh, and another item:

Great news BOBAH13, when you release the fix, I'll be sure to test it out thoroughly and report back.

P.S. I know I have repeated this problem before, so please forgive me for sounding like a broken record :) but I know you were busy back then and now have indicated that you will be focusing on Bug fixes, so here goes:

If possible, please fix the minimize-windows-to-Dock (with genie effect) Double click issue. Solution: when Minimize window event begins, disable any additional minimize event for that exact window (then, clear the disable when minimize animation finishes.)

If user accidentally minimizes twice, the same window during the single animation, the dock disappears! and all windows minimized to the dock cannot be accessed and you have to kill the dock and all lost windows using the task manager.

Again, sorry for repeating myself but it's such a depressing bug and choosing between mouse gestures (which I cannot live without,) and your wonderful dock would make my head explode ^^

Also, there were already fixed, in my opinion:

1. Detecter of full screen mode of windows;

2. Icon's shadow (now it's not changed to another value by itself);

3. Gallery's items. Now they aren't showed till you are moving the mouse, when you will stopped they begin rendering. Also you will not have any problems with "freez" of gallery

4. Problems when dock try to start (Access violation....)

I hope it will be wokred, because I haven't these problems now in my PC
