"Of The Bay" Version 2.00
« on: October 22, 2008, 08:43:14 PM »
This is a GDImage project to emulate the MAC OS X dockbar in Windows VISTA and XP.

It is a rather complex project, however i like the result:



Note: You must use at least a 1280x1024 resolution and your display must run in 32-bit mode.

I did put many tricks in this code, and the most trivial is that there is absolutly no API child controls  ;D

Looking forward for your feedback.

Added:
To close the DockBar and restore the default Windows desktop, select the AERO DockBar and press the ESCAPE key.

I have updated the zip file, to further reduce the CPU %.

Now if the mouse is outside of the DockBar or if it is not moving hover it, then CPU % should be close to zero.

Thanks for your feedback.

OS X leopard DockBar alike (status)
« Reply #4 on: October 23, 2008, 05:10:10 PM »
DockBar project status

- I am able to hide all the desktop icons while the DockBar is visible and restore them once the DockBar is closed.

I am trying to figure the best way to retrieve the existing desktop icons to show them on the Dockbar.
I am not sure if the ExtractIconEx API is the best way to do that (on VISTA some icons are indeed PNG).
If you have any suggestions they are welcomed.

Looks like the best solution is to retrieve the Desktop Listview handle, doing that:

vHandle& = FindWindow("Progman", "Program Manager")
vHandle& = FindWindowEx(vHandle&, 0, "SHELLDLL_DefView", "")
vHandle& = FindWindowEx(vHandle&, 0, "SysListView32", "FolderView")

'// Here we display the number of icons shown onto the desktop
msgbox str$(SendMessage(vHandle&, %LVM_GETITEMCOUNT, 0, 0))

The problem now is to retrieve each icon using the %LVM_GETIMAGELIST and to figure which icon match a specific shortcut.lnk ...

Hi Patrice,

example runs fine on AMD Sempron 3400+ @ onboard GeForce6, CPU usage is usually 0% with maximum of 14% when I click on it like mad.

Thanks to those who gave me a feedback.

I am still working on it, and i am learning several "under the hood" things about the desktop.

Example:

Code: [Select]
LOCAL hListView, dwProcessId, hProcess, dwSize, lpData AS DWORD
LOCAL nItemCount AS LONG

hListView = FindWindow("Progman", "Program Manager")
hListView = FindWindowEx(hListView, 0, "SHELLDLL_DefView", "")
hListView = FindWindowEx(hListView, 0, "SysListView32", "FolderView")

CALL GetWindowThreadProcessId(hListView, dwProcessId)
hProcess = OpenProcess(%PROCESS_VM_OPERATION OR %PROCESS_VM_READ OR %PROCESS_VM_WRITE, %FALSE, dwProcessId)
IF hProcess THEN
   '// Compute the size of our reserved memory buffer
   dwSize = sizeof(POINTAPI) + sizeof(LVITEM) + %MAX_PATH * 2

   lpData = VirtualAllocEx(hProcess, BYVAL %NULL, dwSize, %MEM_COMMIT, %PAGE_READWRITE)
   IF lpData THEN
      '// Setup pointers
      LOCAL lpPosition, lpItem, lpText AS LONG  
      lpPosition = lpData
      lpItem = lpData + sizeof(POINTAPI)
      lpText = lpData + sizeof(POINTAPI) + sizeof(LVITEM)

      DIM lvi AS LVITEM
      LOCAL szText AS ASCIIZ * (%MAX_PATH * 2)  ' Allow room for unicode
      LOCAL i AS LONG
      nItemCount = SendMessage(hListView, %LVM_GETITEMCOUNT, 0, 0)
      FOR i = 0 TO nItemCount - 1
          '// Init LVITEM structure and copy it to our reserved memory buffer
          lvi.mask       = %LVIF_TEXT
          lvi.iItem      = i
          lvi.iSubItem   = 0
          lvi.pszText    = lpText
          lvi.cchTextMax = %MAX_PATH * 2
          CALL WriteProcessMemory(hProcess, lpItem, lvi, sizeof(LVITEM), 0)
          '// Get text label and x,y location
          CALL SendMessage(hListView, %LVM_GETITEMTEXT, i, lpItem)
          CALL SendMessage(hListView, %LVM_GETITEMPOSITION, i, lpPosition)
          '// Copy from process memory to local variables
          szText = ""
          CALL ReadProcessMemory(hProcess, lpText, szText, %MAX_PATH * 2, 0)
          LOCAL p AS POINTAPI
          CALL ReadProcessMemory(hProcess, lpPosition, p, SIZEOF(POINTAPI), 0)

          Af$ += str$(p.X)+str$(p.Y) + " " + szText + $CR          
    
      NEXT
    
      '// Freeup memory
      CALL VirtualFreeEx(hProcess, lpData, 0, %MEM_RELEASE)
   END IF  

   '// Close process
   CALL CloseHandle(hProcess)
END IF

msgbox Af$

I found a problem that would not fire the target at the first click, I am working on it...

Added:
I think i have fixed it, the zip file has been updated.

If you want to see what i am doing under the hood to fire the shorcuts, then REM out this part of the code

          '// Hide desktop icons 
         
'CALL ShowDesktopIcons(%FALSE)

          CALL ShowWindow(hMain, %SW_SHOW)

          CALL SetTimer(hMain, 1, %TIMER_Speed, %NULL)
          WHILE GetMessage(Msg, %NULL, 0, 0)
                CALL TranslateMessage(Msg)
                CALL DispatchMessage(Msg)
          WEND
          CALL KillTimer(hMain, 1)

          '// Show desktop icons
          'CALL ShowDesktopIcons(%TRUE)


And to understand what i am doing look at FireApplication:
Code: [Select]
SUB FireApplication(BYVAL nItem AS LONG)
    'IF ISFILE(gS(nItem).ShellTo) THEN
    '   LOCAL sShellTo, sCmdLine, sFullPath AS STRING
    '   sShellTo = gS(nItem).ShellTo
    '   sFullPath = gS(nItem).WorkDir
    '   IF LEN(sFullPath) = 0 THEN
    '      sFullPath = RTRIM$(PATHNAME$(PATH, gS(nItem).ShellTo), "\")
    '   ELSE
    '      CALL SetCurrentDirectory((sFullPath))
    '   END IF
    '   CALL ShellExecute(0, "open", (sShellTo), (sCmdLine), (sFullPath), gS(nItem).ShowCmd)
    'END IF
   
'   // Here is the magic part!
    CALL PostMessage (ghListView, 513 , 0, gS(nItem).focusXY) '// WM_LBUTTONDOWN
    CALL PostMessage (ghListView, 514 , 0, gS(nItem).focusXY) '// WM_LBUTTONUP

    CALL PostMessage (ghListView, 515 , 0, gS(nItem).focusXY) '// WM_LBUTTONDBLCLK

END SUB

AERO DockBar (with popup menu)
« Reply #11 on: October 27, 2008, 06:02:39 PM »
Version 1.01 with popup menu has been released (ZIP file attached to the first post of this thread).

By the way this version will show you how to create an ownerdrawn popup menu with text and icon bitmap (png).

1 - %WM_MEASUREITEM
Note: itemWidth must be large enough to hold the largest popup menu string.
Code: [Select]
CASE %WM_MEASUREITEM                     
     LOCAL lpmis AS MEASUREITEMSTRUCT PTR
     lpmis = lParam                     
     IF wParam = 0 THEN                 
        @lpmis.itemWidth = 120           
        @lpmis.itemHeight = 18           
        FUNCTION = 1: EXIT FUNCTION     
     END IF                             

2 - %WM_DRAWITEM
Note: The %ODT_MENU constant is the place to draw our Menu
Code: [Select]
CASE %WM_DRAWITEM                                                                                     
     LOCAL lpdis AS DRAWITEMSTRUCT PTR

     END SELECT                                                                                       

3 - %WM_RBUTTONDOWN
This is the place to create the popup menu.
Note: Currently there is only one item in the menu to "Close DockBar".
Code: [Select]
CASE %WM_RBUTTONDOWN                                                                 
     LOCAL hMenu, nChoice AS LONG                                                     
     hMenu = CreatePopupMenu() '// The bitmap popup menu                             
     IF hMenu THEN                                                                   
        CALL AppendMenu(hMenu, %MF_OWNERDRAW, %IDM_Close          , "")               
        'CALL AppendMenu(hMenu, %MF_SEPARATOR, 102                , "")               
        CALL GetCursorPos(p)                                                         
        nChoice = TrackPopupMenuEx(hMenu, %TPM_RETURNCMD, p.X, p.Y, hWnd, BYVAL %NULL)
        CALL DestroyMenu(hMenu)                                                       
        IF nChoice THEN CALL SendMessage(hWnd, %WM_COMMAND, MAKLNG(nChoice, 0), 0)   
                                                                                     
     END IF                                                                           

4 - GetMenuTxt
This is the place where we read the string to display and we load its matching icon.
Note: GetMenuTxt is able to handle multi-languages, at this time English and French.
Code: [Select]
FUNCTION GetMenuTxt(BYVAL ItemId AS LONG, Img AS LONG) AS STRING
    LOCAL sItem AS STRING
    IF IsFrench() THEN
       SELECT CASE ItemId
       CASE %IDM_Close             : FUNCTION = "Fermer DockBar"

       END SELECT
    ELSE
       SELECT CASE ItemId
       CASE %IDM_Close             : FUNCTION = "Close DockBar"

       END SELECT
    END IF

    SELECT CASE ItemId
    CASE %IDM_Close                : sItem = "Close.png"

    END SELECT
    Img = zAddResource(EXE.Path$ + "Resource\" + sItem)

END FUNCTION

That's all for now.

i have test it and can show nothing on the Dockbar.. only menu with "Close Dockbar" are shown

That's very strange, i just checked it on a computer runing XP SP2 and it works the same than on my VISTA Premium laptop.

Great job, Patrice. Runs fine here on WinXP SP3. :)
