Scripting Icons For ObjectDocks

SABERWOLF » May 4th, 2011, 4:50 pm

I am looking for a method too creating personalized text icons for object dock.

This is the text icons I would like to achieve.

Be gentle with me with your explanations, I am a rookie :)

That's the dock in jsmorleys pics is it not?
I think he just uses string meters actually. Then have LeftMouseUpAction on them.

I don't think, therefore I'm not.

Yes it is the same as jsmorleys

I threw him a PM earlier, he referred me too two files

Button Off

Button Over

But I just don't know where too go to apply the code in the page you have posted towards these image files?

How would I create the text into these blank images, do I use a photo editing program like Photo Shop, I hope not because I am a Photo Shop dummy :(

Refer to the Enigma Suite Launcher Menu skin.

I have three rules when I'm trying to help you.
  • Don't get mad when you don't understand something
  • Be VERY specific with what you ask for.
    The more specific you are, the higher the quality of support you receive.
  • Do not just copy and paste what I put in examples and come back saying it doesn't work.
    It does work, but I purposely left blanks that you need to fill for your specific needs.

?

What i linked to you is a suite. In that suite is 2 subfolders, Sidebar and Taskbar. In the taskbar folder is a folder with a group of skins called Launcher. In this Launcher folder there is a config named Menu. In the config is a skin named menu (.ini). That specific skin is a good example of what your looking for.

So to recap
Enigma -> Taskbar -> Launcher -> Menu -> Menu.ini

Use this as a reference for what your trying to do.

However... As another question in case both me and chewtoy aren't following you right.

Are you trying to have rainmeter augment object docks capabilities???

Actually I wanted too create text custom dock icons for a entirely different program all together, the program is called Stardock Object Docker.

Not for rain meter docks.
