Just wondering how it's working for people ...
Comment #2 Thursday, June 09, 2005 4:46 PM
Wow, this really kicks ass!
Great work!
You may have just put the antiquated taskbar out of business!
Help me out with a few things please...
1.) I can't seem to get the "current" weather location and temperature to change to my location.
Although it does acknowledge the long-term forecast and location properly.
2.) Do you know which email server to use for Hotmail?... Or is Hotmail even an option?
A drop-down choice list of the more popular servers would be awesome.
3.) Also it would be really great if it were easier to change the clock face.
That alone would dramatically change the look and feel of the dock and give it a more customized appearance.
Most of us already have a nice collection of dock clock icons at our disposal and a quick-change option for this seems to fit.
I tried to change the clock to a different .png but had drastic results.
Nonetheless, OUTSTANDING!!

Would it be possible to do this for a 1024x 768 resolution?

I will look into it when I have time - it would entail some adjustment of all the pieces

sarone: Do you mean you want it to stay docked and not autohide, on the desktop?
Comment #5 Thursday, June 16, 2005 9:15 AM

Right, on the desktop and not on top of browsers and programs
Comment #6 Thursday, June 16, 2005 11:48 AM
sarone: Okay, that can be done fairly easily. To do it yourself you will need to put DesktopX into Builder Mode. Then right click on the dock and choose DesktopX, then Properties. On the properties page select the Relation tab. Set the Z-Order either to Desktop level or Normal level, depending on what you want. (If you set to Desktop level, then the dock will never come on top of other apps, even when you click on it.) Let me know if this helps, otherwise I can set one up for you and send it...

Gary: It normally will download as a dxpack file. If it's not for you it may be that your browser is changing the extension. Try renaming the file to *.dxpack and then execute it. Hope that helps ...

The only thing I would add is that it be resizable.
Comment #11 Sunday, July 31, 2005 11:23 PM
I agree with Wbwoodford, resizable. Especially for us not-so-common (I think) 1152X864 users.
But anyways it's great!! Keep it up!

I am sorry for my profanity - how do I install this?
Comment #13 Wednesday, August 10, 2005 1:33 PM
nickei - You need to have DesktopX installed to use it. If you do, then the download should result in a .dxpack file. Executing this file with DesktopX loaded should import the object to your desktop.
Comment #14 Saturday, August 13, 2005 4:39 PM

Package loading failed. Image file:"" not found.

What do I do?

Comment #15 Thursday, September 29, 2005 7:21 AM
Hmmm...when I downloaded this it came as a .ZIP file.
when I opened it up with winzip there were like 30 files in there along with
like 20 bmp images for the object.

Can I change the extension to .DXPACK instead of .ZIP and make it work that way?

Yes, that should do it. Once it is a .dxpack again, you can just execute the file.

Please please please give some different sizes. I'v been using it about a month and the size is just getting annoying, it's gigantic for the average screen resolution. Can you either make it resizable, make a 1024x768 version, or give me a basic idea of what to do so I can try it myself. Don't get me wrong, this thing is amazing, I just don't want to give it up just because of the size.

Also, how do rename the shortcut boxes? I can change the target but when I click "Rename" nothing happens to them.. Do I have to change the image itself(if so do you know where I can find it on my computer) or just the text in the box (if so how is that done)?

Try typing "localhost" as the server name and check the pop3 box.

[quote][/quote] How do I get the icons on the bar above the User name ? Also is there a way to size the dock if we choose not to display some of the dock items. Rest of the features looks cool. Gops
