WBDock and WBDock 2 Released





WBDock: DockBar with more Skin comfortable and easy to install.

Author: Thomas Rapp


WBDock v1.10 WBDock2 v2.309: Download


WBDock: Simple dock bar for WB 1.3
- Now supports start menu-like sub docks

Update 01-Jun-2020:
- Added WBStartup feature: run all programs from a directory or listed in a text file at startup

WBDock2:

Update 01-Jun-2020:
- Add .info to file name in "change icon" requester
- Updated Italian translation; thanks to S.Hawamdeh

To use a true skin for the funny style rather than a tiled pattern you need all these prereqisites:

- True color screen mode (15 bits per pixel or more)
- Texture file with transparency (transparent color, mask plane or alpha channel)
- Pngalpha.library when using a PNG file as texture
- Width of texture must be divisibly by 3
- Platter height set to "use texture height"

The size of the icons for the funny style can be set by tooltypes FUNNYICONW, FUNNYICONH only.

Similarly the growth of the active icon in percent can be set by tooltype FUNNYGROWTH. Default is 100.

@AMIGASYSTEM: sorry, I didn't reply to your PM yet. You can now change the icon size and use a custom-shaped platter

Perfect Thomas, with the translation I didn't understand that you had to add those parameters in the Tooltype, thanks for your help.

It would be nice to be able to remove the text under icons in AmiDock Style and ToolManager, and always on ToolManager the possibility to insert a skin

What OS are you using? You can copy and run from the folder wherever you want.

Look at the vido, I run the unpacked folder on the fly on a WB 3.0

Ah, I see. I use 3.1.4.1 with BestWB, and on BestWB it seems like WBDock is in Tools/Commodoties, but I'm not sure where the other files are located, and then moved into WBStartup if you want to autostart it.

Thank you Thomas for answering my request, everything works well also on ArosOne 68k. Is it planned to start the text also on "MagicWB Style" ?

The news Updated to version 2.255

I'm impressed enough to have replaced AmiDock with WBDock2. This is the MWB configuration. The "dockies" are very nice. Here, showing the dock clock. I really like the way larger icons fill the space. It (very sort of) reminds me of the dock in Coffin OS.

Thomas - I have a bug report to file regarding the CPU usage on WBDock vs. AmiDock which I had to switch back to. Can I send it to you here or on your page? I didn't want to file it here in public. Great app but 2.255 is causing some unwanted behaviors in OS 3.9. Thanks!

On OS 3.9 RTG AfA OS no pronlem found !

I'll check the CPU usage on the other styles. Thanks for the heads-up.

Unfortunately on my Bench, WBDock2 runs hot regardless of style employed. I've gone back to AmiDock in the interim. I have no doubt the issue will be resolved.
