This happens with OS 3.1, the icon library of the dear and good Peter on OS3.1 in addition to the command "C:Loadmodule LIBS:icon.library" needs the command "RemLib >NIL: icon.library" to be added to the user startup.

Tested DockBot also on RTG systems (version Aminet), it also works well on AFA-OS.
In my opinion something is missing to be perfect:
- Function to move the Doc by hand where you want to
- Automatic resize (icons of different sizes do not look good)
- Ability to drag new apps onto the Doc
- Possibility of adding a background to the Doc
- Show Label It doesn't seem to work !
- As mentioned above, replace path System: a SYS: or leave scripts empty

That's nonsense. You need only one of these.

Loadmodule is the proper way to replace a ROM module, but it needs a reboot.

RemLib removes the library from the resident list, so that it will be loaded from disk. It works on the fly but is a hack.

Running both is stupid because it allocates the memory twice and needs an unnecessary reboot.

Excuse me thomas, forgot to say that RemLib was necessary for RTG systems using the AfA-OS extension.
icon.library by Peter to work on systems like Amikit, AmikitX, AmikiXE, AfA-OS, AIAB AfA-OS and AfA-WB also needs the command "RemLib >NIL: icon.library" otherwise the system uses the Icon_lib.exe

"Show labels" works for me, it toggles to tooltip string on the launch icons.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Yeah, I'm thinking about making it modal so you could "unlock" the Dock and then drag it around by the handle. Then lock it again to use it.

Yep, I agree. I use MWB icons on the machine I developed it on and even then there's no guarantee the icons will all be the same size. Scaling might not work too well but at least making all the buttons the same size should be doable.

I'm also thinking of making the icon borders optional which I think would look better with glowicons or newicons.

If I go with the "unlock" mode mentioned above, you should be able to drop icons onto the dock, drag them off it to remove them and also shuffle them around.

It would be possible, as the dock clears the window content before drawing a gadget.

As hth313 mentioned, that option toggles tooltips displayed when you hover the mouse pointer over the window.
