This is a redraw issue with Classic, and has nothing to do with the dock. Hopefully Apple can work out a fix; if not, well, Classic won't be around forever. Most Carbon apps know not to resize behind the dock already.At this moment, the dock is especially nasty when Classic apps are running. The bottom of windows very often end up behind the dock and white squares appear when the windows are moved.
Only if Apple changes the dockling api to allow docklings to find out their location.scruffy, those eye balls will certainly appear as a dockling one day.
After all, it's indeed a matter of feeling, just like Endian puts it. Like my idea gives Endian the creeps, the current situation gives me the creeps.ick, no, i'd *hate* this! what would be the point? If the dock takes up too much space, make it smaller or hide it.
Please, tell me how to delete the dock. You are forced to use it, like it or not. There's no way to hide it fully. Having it pop-up whenever you pass the cursor over the bottom of the screen is a pain in the ars!Originally posted by thedbp
its not like you HAVE to use it or even see if you don't want to, and it does so many useful things ... I mean geez, lay off, its better, more complete, and offers more functionality than any other appswitcher/document holder/folder browser/app launcher/etc. out there. Leave the dock alone. Its doing the best it can, and I've yet to see anyone make something better.
If Apple doesn't do the evolving others certainly will.Originally posted by thedbp
There's a few places you'll likely be able to find "Docking Maneuvers." Try www.stepwise.com, www.macosxapps.com, or www.versiontracker.com. one of them HAS to have it. It lets you do all sorts of neat things with the dock, which just might give you a fresh perspective on this useful tool.
Also, keep in mind that this is the first time we've seen the Dock. It will change based on our requests to apple. So use it - it isn't going anywhere. Figure out what you DO like, what you'd like changed, and tell Apple. I figure in 1 year the Dock will be a very different animal from what it is now, just as it was very different in 10.0 than it was in the PB. Frankly I miss my control strip terribly, and 'docklings' just get lost in the shuffle of icons ... well, any way you stack it, the OS is going to keep changing and evolving. I'm not worried in the least.
