I made this early release because of the speed improvement implemented for the mousewheel.
I think it gives a much better feeling of responsiveness during the rotation.
The second improvement is for icons arguments.
Here is an example of what it is :
If you have a shortcut with a target like :
This shortcut will open the file config.txt in notepad.
The text found after the space is called an argument.
this can be used to launch special folders like my computer, recycle bin, etc…
Here how to do it :
- add an icon in SliderDock, right click on it then "icon settings".
- In target write : explorer.exe
- In arguments write the code for the folder wanted.
Here is a website that list the codes for the special folders in XP :
and here is the list for vista/7 :
Now sliderdock will hide even if the application isn't found.
I had to do this for the targets like explorer.exe to work.
The retrieval of arguments from a shortcut when you drag and drop is still not functional.
In the next Release, I will try to add an option in the right click menu to add those special folder easily.
