Stacks Docklet 2.0


Recommended Posts

hola matias como estas?.. muy ansioso por la liberacion de la beta de esta 2da version de uno de los mejores docklets que existen.. te queria informar un problema.. uso Rocketdock, y la posicion del dock es la parte superior de la pantalla, despues de agregar el Stackdocklet 2.0 doy click derecho al icono y luego hago click en Opciones de Icono para configurar.. pues la ventana de opciones se abre pero muy arriba y por lo tanto lo unico que veo es esto:post-90621-1234916430_thumb.png

Por favor postea en español Y en inglés (reglas del foro) (gralmente. si tengo que hacerlo posteo en español y una breve descripción en inglés, puedes hacer lo mismo también ;) ).

Gracias por el dato, lo acabo de solucionar. Estará disponible en la siguiente pre-beta.

Translation:

He tells me the config dialog shows partially outside when dock is set to top side of screen.

I tell him to provide a short translation in english for his posts (just forum rules).

The bug has been fixed and fix will be available in next pre-beta release.

Ooops, sorry :)

Reflective mode is always there, I forgot to disable the code before publishing, sorry.

Matonga thank you for the update, for me the reflective mode is one of the coolest things in this new version... please dont remove it. maybe just add the toggle option to turn it on and of to accommodate the one that dont like it? -sorry i know you mention that all suggestion have to be made after the beta release- but please dont kill the reflective mode :(

I'm sorry but I have to decide betweeen reflective and non-reflective.

So I'll compile reflective for myself and publish non-reflective for everyone.

Just kidding! Hahaha, it will come with non-reflective by default, and you'll be able to change it through TweakStacks (program included with Stacks which will be available at beta).

Will we get fadeout reflections?

Stacks Docklet 2.0

Warning: this is a pre-beta release. It may contain missing options / missing features / errors / memory leaks / etc... Bug reports will be taken into account as long as they aren't RocketDock/RkLauncher/bad-shortcut-overlay-removal bugs. Feature requests will be silently ignored until beta release. :rolleyes:

Version 2009-02-16: download from File2Go

Enjoy. ;)

great to see a new version of this. looks slick with the mirroring. running on Vista 64bit using latest OD (1.9 535u). does not work at top of screen. I can add stack icon but when I choose properties, the property window moves off screen (towards top) and I can't move it at all (I can see the edge of it). I can close it from the vista menu bar. when I move the dock to the bottom it works fine. I cannot change the name of the stack and it doesn't take the name of the folder I point it to. I guess this will be available in future releases. My links are nested in a folder on the desktop. Only a few links are shown with icons, most of them are not and show as default app icon. when I go into the folder with the icons on the desktop they all show fine. I reapplied an icon to one of the links but it still doesn't show in the stack. I restarted with no luck. Looking forward to updates.

thank you

You guess right.

Only a few links are shown with icons

Yeah, icon extraction is not working fine, it seems LoadImage() doesn't handle 256x256 icons. If someone knows what to do it would be really helpful to me.

Great to know that, I now have successfully downloaded the file now. Thanks you both.

Sure, cause happy users, are the users, which will go on using File2Go ;)

I coded about 1000 lines since sunday, just to improve File2Go. So the response should be quick :P

great work!!!!

I hvae tested the 2.0. It seems smooth. But as far as the functionality is concerned, the pre-beta has catched up with the 1.x. Biggest problem is that 2.0 doesn't work if the dock is at the screen top, and the config dialog doesn't appear either. The user set icon will change back into the default one if you click on the docklet. And the its name can only be changed in the current theme file.

Coding is tough. But Matonga has done it quite well!!!

Big thanks!

Hi!

First of all, let me tell you how great your Docklet is. I've been looking for something like this for a long time and I simply love it! Keep up your great work!

As for a feature request, this probably isn't the easiest thing to do, but i think you should consider replacing the current shortcut system for a proper "launcher" system, just as those used by the dock bars.

This would allow users of your Docklet to set custom icons for each launcher, just as they do for standard launchers inside the dock. I know there's a possibility to change a shortcut icon, but it must be in .ico format and in some shortcuts you can't even change the icon at all.

Thanks!

matonga, thank you for the 19th Feb update - great to see items on the 'To Do' list gradually being crossed off!

I have another query...

I have unchecked the 'Show Control Panel in My Computer' option in Folder Options, and ensured that the 'HideMyComputerIcons' registry key for {21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} is also set to 1, thus preventing the icon from appearing in 'My Computer' Explorer windows. However, when assigning 'My Computer' to the Stacks Docklet folder I notice that the 'Control Panel' icon is still visible. May I please ask if it would be possible for a future version to correctly adhere to the registry setting, thus hiding the 'Control Panel' icon?

Here is a screenshot to illustrate (please disregard the jaggy icons for the time being - I haven't gotten around to ResHack-ing shell.dll - indeed, I wonder if an alternative, more flexible option exists?)

stackcontrolpanelrq7.th.png

On a separate note, when TweakStacks is eventually released, may I ask if the settings will apply globally to all stacks, or whether each stack will be able to have its own specific settings?

Finally, may I recommend that you use the Rocket Dock/Object Dock API for the 'Change Icon' option, instead of the generic Explorer file chooser.

Keep up the great work!

Cheers,

James

hola de nuevo matonga.. tengo otro inconveniente.. cuando el dock esta en la parte superior de la pantalla y el stack esta en modo Fan, se despliega hacia arriba y por lo tanto no se ve nada..

Translation:

When the dock is set to the top of the screen, and the stack is in Fan Mode, it opens upward.. it should open downward..

sorry for my english!!

Yes, it works for me. Office icons are now successfully extracted.

I'm running XP pro eng with Office 2007.

I noticed it is not properly working with Library folder in Windows 7.

Maybe Windows 7 has a newer icon format? Who knows...

Other Windows 7 folders work just fine (like My computer).

Rocketdock, Vista. "Don't use icon" and "Use icon as box overlay" does the same: picks an icon from the items, and replaces that with the stack.png icon when clicked. When I set "Use icon as stack icon", the icon disappeares, and stack.png is shown wen click on the blank space where the icon should be.

That was the same with the feb.19. version as well.

When I replaced the fe 19 version with the feb 20 and started rocketdock, it said it can't read the icons, and started with rocketdocks default items and default icons.

A stack pointing to a folder with 6 items (open folder icon is shown, so 7 items in stack) is rendered into a 3 row 4 column grid instead of 2 row 4 column.

With ObjectDock Plus 1.9 everything is working fine for me.

The only problem is the same as szekelya reported, in a folder with 8 icons (with "open folder" set as hidden), the grid is rendered with 3 rows and 4 columns.

I'm on WinXP SP3 Spanish.

Edit: Mancho is right, grid view is HUGE.

XP SP2 1280x1024

Rocketdock docked on top

stack version 2009-02-20

Fan opens upwards, so it isn't visible (I'm sure you know that one already)

Grid is HUGE, takes entire screen.

small memory leak: 50-100k each opening of grid

Looking great. Can't wait to see what tweaks we'll be able to do later.

Version 2009-02-20: download from File2Go THIS RELEASE HANDLES ITEMS ICONS A BIT DIFFERENT, PLEASE POST IF IT WORKS FOR YOU OR NOT

OD+1.9b537u/7b7000x64:

Most of the icon is working now. only few is not working (working fine with version 2009-02-19) like Acrobat Reader (icon path:%SystemRoot%\Installer\{AC76BA86-7AD7-1033-7B44-A90000000001}\SC_Reader.exe) but change icon path to %ProgramFiles% (x86)\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe fixed the icon problem. so i think it is working on cache before.

Thank you for your hard and great work Matonga "The Master"!!!

I also experienced the problem uuffoo reported in post #48 and I solved it the same way.

Also I use IconPackager and the custom generic folder is not working under stacks, My Documents and My Pictures for example are working fine.

Bug I forgot to tell before that also happens in previous versions of Stacks Docklet (even v1.0) is: you click a stack, it opens, then you click another stack and the first one closes while the second one opens, so far so good, but when you click second stack to close it, first stack stays kind of "locked". The only way to "unlock" it is by draggin a little bit ANY icon in the dock.

Edit: I just noticed that this bug only happens when "follow the dock" in v1.0 is NOT checked.

Version 2 doesn't have that option so I wouldn't know.
