I've an issue with RocketDock program.

About RocketDock - RocketDock.com

When I click at this button, rocketdock disappears. Here's the solution:

Bypassing 'Show Desktop' bug in RocketDock - Vista Forums

But - as you can see - it concerns on Vista. In Seven, we have the new button

So again, do you know where is this source code ?

Unless you clarify what you mean by "Source Code", because in developers language, "Source Code" means the original human-readable code used during the devlopment phase of a software project. If this is what you want, then no, you're out of luck, as only authorized Microsoft developers have access to this.

If is it that you just want to get rid of the "Show Desktop" button entirely.

Also, have you tried getting a Windows 7 certified version of Rocket Dock that does not have this problem you're having?

I don't think that there is a certified version of this program... At least, I haven't found any...

In the Rocket Dock website, it appears as though version 1.3.5 is the newest one. Is this what you're using?

Then my guess will be that Rocket Dock 1.3.5 is Windows 7 Compatible, and not Windows 7 Certified. The difference is that it hasn't been specifically coded to take advantage of unique Windows 7 features.

May I suggest you try the new Windows 7 taskbar, which seems to me like a stationary rocket dock.

It can have any program pinned to it, then shows a complete history with rightclick. It folds out very useful and sizeable thumbnails of open windows so you can quickly choose one to Open or close just by clicking on it or it's red X.

I had a friend who I installed Windows 7 for who wanted his rocket dock installed and was hardly willing to listen to the features of the new taskbar because he liked the rocketdock's animation (which wont' seem to hold still for me and thus is annoying).

But he relented and after I demonstrated it he has been quite happy ever since. Never had to find out that it has the bug you've discovered.

I've been using Rocket Dock may be for 5 years. It is very good dock, and I have never had problems with it . Even now with Win 7 Ult 32bit it's OK.
