Windows 7: Task Se7en

Windows 7 Build 7600
 
 

I put the clock in Task Se7en for the same reason that many of you want me to keep it there. I did however, put a little button at the right edge of the clock that lets you hide it.

"Also if possible could you add a button alongside the min/max/close buttons that maximises across all monitors?"

I've been looking into an idea like that. Non-client drawing is such a pain in the ass to do, although I won't give up on it. (Don't hold your breath for that to make it into the pre-beta )

"Can it auto-hide? And if so, does it auto-hide independently from the system task bar on the primary monitor?"

Yes. Task Se7en can auto hide and it can do it independent of the system taskbar.

"DITTO.. Plz keep it there.. Basically the bar should look like its stretched across both monitors.. (ie: The System Tray and clock should be on the 2nd monitor)"

I can't place the actual system tray onto Task Se7en as the system tray is not a window that can be moved via API calls. - Same goes for the buttons on Task Se7en. They can not be dragged/dropped onto the system taskbar and vice versa. Actually, at the moment, Task Se7en doesn't support any drag/drop at all. This will change though. I have pretty big plans for Task Se7en

I'll be constantly tweaking the appearance of Task Se7en over the next year or so - at least until Windows 7 goes RTM. This pre-beta build will be geared towards Windows 7 build 7077 as that is the build that I am currently running. I am not going to support older Windows 7 builds (in the looks department) and when I upgrade my Windows build I'll make any appropriate changes to Task Se7en to keep it matching the look of the OS.

You can do that in Windows by telling him to create a "virtual" single large monitor.

At this point, no. But, it's a feature that I certainly want to implement. It's just that at this point in time it's not high on the priority list.

I want Task Se7en to be as stable as possible before beginning to implement any of the cool features that UM/DF provide. Task Se7en is only about 4 months into development right now but, I think, that from the screen shot that I posted most people can see that it's headed in a pretty good direction already.

One thing that I have began to implement is pinned shortcut buttons like in the native Windows 7 taskbar. I don't know if they will be supported in the first pre-beta release or not. It's just a matter of how much time I have to spend on it while trying to get an installer together, etc. before Monday.

Now there's a feature that should be standard with Windows 7, what with so many of us using Dual Monitors

Not to be offensive but, to be quite blunt - HELL NO!

The only open source project that I've been remotely involved with (if you want to call it that) is GeckoFx - an almost, drop-in replacement for the IE ActiveX control. GeckoFX is a "Firefox" web browser control provided by Skybound Software (I have no professional affiliation with them). If you are interested in GeckoFX you can find more information at the following forum: http://geckofx.org . I don't mean to detract from the point of this thread but, if you are a .NET developer and are looking for an IE replacement then look no further than GeckoFX. It's a one of a kind wrapper around the XULRunner runtime and should not be over looked. You'll find my screen name plastered all over that forum !...

I'll tell Andrew, the forum moderator, to keep on the lookout for new recruits...
