Re: Win8 problem (hot corners block the plugin mouse events)

Win8 is no longer a "work in progress". It is extremely unlikely that the Windows 8 user interface will change from what's in the Release Preview. RTM is scheduled to be a couple of weeks from now, shipping to OEMs by the end of August. Public release is scheduled for October 26. See http...

Re: Win8 problem (hot corners block the plugin mouse events)

maybe there is a workaround or a way to disable win8s own hot corners? The so-called "hot corners" feature is part of Windows 8's Metro UI and you may be able to disable it in Display Properties. The last time I checked, there was almost developer information available regarding its API. ...

Re: Rainmeter, CircleDock

The current public release of CircleDock has no specific support for Dexpot and therefore its behaviour - its visibility or otherwise - under this environment may be tricky to control. A new version, which will support Dexpot fully, is currently under beta test and will be released once the team is ...

Re: Minimize Application to Floating icons on desktop

It makes a diference when you multitask running betwwen 30 to 50 applications at the same times. minimizing apps as icons to the desktop and having the ability to lock the icons position, makes it much faster to find the application needed with less mouse clicks. The Desktop can not act as a Taskba...

Re: Pager fixed location?

I think what Patrick means is that it is not technically possible. The area immediately to the right of the Start Menu Button is the Quick Launch bar and it is not part of the Taskbar. The two areas are handled in an entirely different way by Explorer and a running application can not install itself...

Re: A more elegant Window catalogue

I can't answer your question directly but the fact that Switcher requires "Aero" support, which Dexpot does not, may mean it is capable of a richer set of visual transitions.

Re: Excel loses focus after desktop switches

Yes, I added that line to the ini file long ago. What would cause the Userform windows to randomly lose the ability to be 'selected' by the mouse? They continue to display correctly, and show only on the desktop they are assigned to . Just can't be clicked and brought into focus. I get a system 'be...

API: DEX_SETSWITCHINGEXCEPTION and 64-bit Windows

This API call works fine if the operating environment is 32-bit but doesn't work if included in a 64-bit plug-in. I have tested the following form:

Code: Select all

SendNotifyMessage(DexpotHWnd, DEX_SETSWITCHINGEXCEPTION, MyHWnd, DEX_EXCEPTION_STICKY)

I'm having a problem getting my plug-in's window to remain visible when the current Desktop has switched and the following is a summary of my findings: Using the API DEX_COPYWINDOW - if I use this after the switch has taken place (which I believe I must), my window is not copied.

But the (cosmetic) problem is that all the previews will show the same background as the active desktop unless and until there is a switch of desktops.

Oh ... that's annoying. Can I make that a request for inclusion in the API please? Hm. The preview images used in SevenDex and other places (at least for desktops already visited) are static screenshots.

Is there any way I can pass the full path name of an image file, together with its relevant virtual desktop number so that the (Dexpot) Previews, including SevenDex, show the correct backgrounds for each defined Desktop BEFORE a switch is made to another Desktop and Dexpot updates itself? No. Oh .....

Mark, As a potential user of your plugin, I would greatly appreciate a settable update interval. Sometimes I like to run through the slideshow quickly, and other times I'd prefer that the backgrounds change very slowly. It might be reasonable to provide the same intervals as are available for Win7'...

Re: Rocketdock, objectdock and winstep nexus dock integratio

Thoughts: There is an off the wall solution using Rainmeter and placing a handmade launcher in each area. This will not have the abilities of many common launchers, but each one could be placed as needed in each VD. You mean you'd need a new Dock program to be written that is RainMeter-aware but no...

Re: Rocketdock, objectdock and winstep nexus dock integratio

Actually it would be a lot better - and simpler - if the companies authoring those dock programs implemented the Dexpot API.

I write a competitive product to those you mention and integrating the Dexpot API was a relatively simple operation.
