Awesome idea!!!! Do you need 2.0 or is 1.1 OK?????

PS....guess that answers my question...."the link." Pretty sure SDK 2.0 is out and has been for a while, but I could be wrong!!

Where should I put the docklets in order to see them in the list so I can choose it?

Do you have any plans to release the source code for this? I'm currently using it for my .NET Digital Clock Docklet and I'm trying to track down some memory issues. I think it may possibly be in one of these run-time objects.

Sorry, I started on a new job one month ago and I haven't had time to work on any of my side projects
I will try to upload the latest version of the sources this evening.

Edit: The source code is available here: Link
Good luck !

Littleboy, sorry to bother you with what it seems to me like a newbie question.

But I couldn't really make any .NET docklets appear on its list. I add the ".NET docklet", and then I click it so I can configure it. And the list is empty. I had extracted the "FeaturedSkins for .NET" under ObjectDock\Docklets\DotNetDocklets, so I have the FeaturedSkins folder there. But it definitely does not appear on the list.

Then I've tried to copy the .INI that is inside the FeaturedSkins folder to the DotNetDocklets folder, changed the relative paths for the icon and the DLL and then it shows the extension with its info. But when clicking OK, it abends ObjectDock, so I guess it has something to do with the fact that I put that .INI in the DotNetDocklets folder (it was also in the FeaturedSkins folder).

Am I missing something? I swear I read what I could from the runtime package and also on the .net docklet package, but I'm stuck now. Sorry to bother you for support for this, man... it's just that I wanna see this working, 'cause I've loved the idea of using .NET for some nice docklets.

I realize this thread is ancient, but...

I can add a new .Net Docklet... I can click it and the SDK sample docklets are listed... but when I select any one of them and click OK, ObjectDock freezes for a few seconds then disappears... no more process.

The only thing I can think of that may be causing the issue is that these are built from VS2005... When I loaded the solution, VS had to run the code update wizard thingie. Any ideas?

This on XP or Vista with UAC off, right? It's trying to write to HKCR to register the .Net dlls and it should fails on Vista (with UAC).

It's compiled with .Net 1.1, so it won't work with docklets compiled with .Net 2.0
You will need a fixed version, recompiled with .Net 2.0

How do you add Birthdays to this docklet as the INI it allows you to select cannot be found?? Figured out it was the .bdi file but this thing just does not work. I've tried all date formats to see if it works but it still does not see the Test entry I put in the .bdi file so I can test it and it failed right from the start. [TestName] Name=Test Name Date=01/13/1968 'Does not work' [TestName] Name=Test Name Date=13/01/1968 'Does not work' Would be nice if you made an FAQ as you left it for the rest of us to figure out how to get it to work. So far I am unable to get this docklet to work....

Hi XWyldRogueX,

Sorry for the lack of documentation!

First you should get the updated version that works on Vista and with .Net 2.0 here.

When you start the docklet for the first time and choose the Birthday INI file type, it should copy the ini file to %LocalAppData%\Stardock\ObjectDockPlus\Docklets\BirthdayReminder

The bdi file is just a template that is used to create the ini file if none exists.

Edit the BirthdayReminder.ini file, and add the birthdays to it. You will have to restart ObjectDock or remove and then re-add the docklet for it to pick the updated ini file. I just tested it on my machine, it should fix your problem with non-existent ini files.

This docklet was more of a sample than anything else, so it's quite simplistic. It is also locale dependent (if you change your locale to say France, all the dates will be read as dd/mm/yyyy instead of mm/dd/yyy). If you know a little bit of C# and want to adapt it to your needs or fix all the shortcomings, you can take a look at the source here.
