gDock - A minimal dock for Windows that can sit with the taskbar, or without it.
This is the Alpha 1 distribution of gDock, a minimal dock for Windows that can sit with the taskbar, or without it. This dock comes pre-configured out of the box, it has links to common apps (IE, etc...), and is very simple to use.

left-clicking starts the app, or changes to the folder-tab specified. right-clicking deletes the icon, or when in the Tasks tab folder, terminates the application. middle (mouse wheel) clicking opens up the properties of that icon, allowing you to edit it.

This app makes use of my Icon command system, that is, icons with special names will invoke special commands. Start PNG is a good example, and PNG files named as such will invoke and show that start menu. There is a list in the Pin a File dialog box that lists the (currently) known commands.

This comes with the FFW Icon set (pngs), that is released by LGPL, as is included Credits to the original authors and such.

This is the successor to TaskDock, a real, true dock app.

TaskDock2 alpha (gDock)

gDock- a app that make the windows vist/7 start bar into a Dock

 

Ok, so this is Alpha, but a stable, everyday usable alpha. Only thing is, as of now, it only functions like every other dock out there, that is, a Launcher.

TaskListing is up next. Once i get a good way of doing so, the app will be 90% done. So just to make sure every one reads and understands, NO TASKLISTING YET.

Now, you can set this up in a few different ways.

Included is 3 different folders, \Icons\ is the folder it starts off in. Take note that you will see some text files in this folder.

To make the Launcher work right, open up a text file, and you will see just one line, a path to an .exe file. That is how it works, simple.

Just put a png in the folder with the app's desired display name (like how i have the box as 7-zip.png), then make a text file, name it as the app's name (again, 7-zip.txt), and have the text file have the path to the .exe file as it's one, first line.

Example (c:\program files\7-zip\7zfm.exe)

So pretty simple!

There is three hard coded "command" icons:
"Close" (exits the app)
"Tasks" (not in use yet, will list running tasks)
"Pinned" (it will show the Pinned (pre-defined app icons, like the \Icons\ folder)

Clicking on close, well, closes the app. Choosing between Pinned and Tasks is just a show of speed for loading and showing different icons, this may eventually become a tabbed feature.

Anyway, Alpha STABLE 1, only the "\icons\" folder works, use the text files, blah blah blah

And FYI, gDock is the current project code name.

Read Sizes.txt. The first number is how Big the icons get on mouse over. the second number is the normal size. these values are read in only on startup, so if you change them while the app is running, exit, then start up the app again.

Shortcut Commands.
Right click on the EXE > make shortcut. click on the shortcut properties, the first text box will have the path and the exe. add in these command line events for additional functions.


Known shortcut commands:
-nostart
hides that start orb. (vista/7 only)

TaskDock

 

TaskDock gives the Windows 7 Superbar (Taskbar) a bit more of a "dock" like feel. It will center and re-adjust the Tasks area of the taskbar, centering it, expanding and contracting with new apps and old apps, as they are created and terminated.
