Emil,

GDImage is a commercial graphic toolkit as you can see it there.


The trial version is not time limited, and it allows you to try all the features of the Pro version without any other restriction than the nag screen.

It is a very versatile toolkit, and one of the very few able to work with VISTA in full composited mode.
It combines the best of GDI32+GDIPLUS+OpenGL.
The Carousel is a must try and the demo is available for plain Win32, C# managed, and WinDev.

You can also try PhotoComposer that is a pure GDImage project from 01men

"Of The Bay" (I heard you!)
« Reply #32 on: November 04, 2008, 07:07:28 PM »
Petr, Dominique,

I heard you!

Here is "Of The Bay" version 1.20, with drag and drop and smooth scrolling.

  • Drag and drop
Now you can start BassBox and MovieBox just as you did with the standard desktop icon.
  • Smooth scrolling
Starts when the mouse hover either the left or right arrow, if you click on the arrow you scroll the content either from the start or to the end.

The new zip file is attached to the first post of this thread.

Under request of Laurence Jackson,

I have added detection of embedded desktop subfolders:

FUNCTION ResolveShortcutName(zLnk AS ASCIIZ) AS STRING
    LOCAL sUseIcon AS STRING

    IF zLnk = ShortCutDisplayName(%CSIDL_BITBUCKET) THEN sUseIcon = "RecycleBin.png":             GOTO ExitLnk
    IF zLnk = ShortCutDisplayName(%CSIDL_DRIVES)    THEN sUseIcon = "MyComputer.png":             GOTO ExitLnk
    IF zLnk = ShortCutDisplayName(%CSIDL_NETWORK)   THEN sUseIcon = "NetworkNeighborhood.png":    GOTO ExitLnk
    IF zLnk = ShortCutDisplayName(%CSIDL_PERSONAL)  THEN sUseIcon = "MyDocuments.png":            GOTO ExitLnk
    IF zLnk = ShortCutDisplayName(%CSIDL_MYVIDEO)   THEN sUseIcon = "MyVideo.png":                GOTO ExitLnk
    IF zLnk = ShortCutDisplayName(%CSIDL_MYMUSIC)   THEN sUseIcon = "MyMusic.png":                GOTO ExitLnk

    IF (GetFileAttributes(FolderGet(%CSIDL_DESKTOP) + zLnk) AND 16) THEN sUseIcon = "Folder.png": GOTO ExitLnk
    EXIT FUNCTION

ExitLnk:
    FUNCTION = sUseIcon
END FUNCTION

"Of The Bay" version 1.24 (Center common dialog in multiple display mode)
« Reply #40 on: November 16, 2008, 07:23:54 PM »
I have been able to work arround the Microsoft bug that exists in all Windows version, when trying to set the location of a common FileOpen/FileSave dialog on a second monitor in multiple display mode.

You can't imagine what i had to do to solve this "simple" problem ...

By the way i have also added a new GDImage function named "ZI_CenterDialog" to center the dialog to the display instead of the default GDImage's parent window.

If ever you have a multiple display and a slower PC than mine, you can adjust in the main WndProc the dlgSleep parameter to a longer delay (millisecond), see below:
Code: [Select]
'   // This is to force a correct placement of the FileOpen/FileSave common dialog
'   // when using multiple display mode and working on the second display.
    STATIC dlgWnd, dlgX, dlgY AS LONG, dlgSleep AS DWORD
    IF dlgWnd THEN
       IF GetTickCount() > dlgSleep THEN
          CALL SetWindowPos(dlgWnd, dlgWnd, dlgX, dlgY, 0, 0, %SWP_NOZORDER OR %SWP_NOSIZE)
          dlgWnd = 0: dlgSleep = 0
       END IF
    END IF

    SELECT CASE LONG Msg

    CASE %ZM_CENTER_DIALOG
         dlgWnd = wParam: dlgX = LO(INTEGER, lParam): dlgY = HI(INTEGER, lParam)
         dlgSleep = GetTickCount() + 10 ' 100

For those experiencing Doctor Watson on XP when closing "OfTheBay" using the AnimateWindow

Try changing
Code: [Select]
         CASE %IDM_CLOSE ' %ID_CLOSE
              CALL AnimateWindow(hWnd, 500, %AW_CENTER OR %AW_HIDE)
              CALL SendMessage(hWnd, %WM_CLOSE, 0, 0)

to this
Code: [Select]
         CASE %IDM_CLOSE ' %ID_CLOSE
              CALL AnimateWindow(hWnd, 500, %AW_CENTER OR %AW_HIDE)
              CALL apiSleep(500)
              CALL PostMessage(hWnd, %WM_CLOSE, 0, 0)

Other solution "move on to VISTA"... or remove AnimateWindow ;)

"Of The Bay" version 1.30 (major revision)
« Reply #43 on: November 19, 2008, 08:00:43 PM »
Version 1.30 is a major revision.

  • The DockBar doesn't use anymore the WS_EX_TOPMOST style, to be less invasive.
  • If the DockBar is dropped behind the taskbar, then it is moved just above it, to always enable the use of the popup contextual popup menu.
  • If the Dockbar is hidden behind another window, clicking anywhere on the desktop will bring it up in the foreground.
