Dockbar 7 by erelchris Dockbar 7 by erelchris
Dockbar 7

Windows 7 x86 Service Pack 1 only!
(some tested it on x64 and its ok, just dont install icons pls!)

UPDATED! 06.17.2012


The theme/Visual Style features the taskbar of windows 7 transformed to a DOCK..
YES! what you're seing on the screenshot is actually the taskbar. Believe it or not ;)

sorry cant find a program than can disable the blur on the taskbar. (please let me me know if you find one)

captions buttons far from the edge?
Use Windows Close Button Resizer [link] and set it to 1.5


base theme used was Mac 7 by Me [link]
Please comment, I need your suggestions :D

Note: to adjust taskbar, you need to Unlock the taskbar and move the sliders, also you need to hide the clock and some taskbar icons.

next update: will perfect the caption buttons and some minor modifications..soon

Hi there.
F''ing love your theme, it's my absolute favorite. The only thing missing, in my opinion, is the folders to be transparent. I have a lot of stuff going on at my desktop, and it would be nice to be able to see that, even though i'm in a folder.
Keep up the good work. :)

Also, how do i centralise the bar and the icons into the middle of the screen, and get rid of the start orb?

this would help u to disable the blur on the taskbar.
but it need  to stay in memory after startup.

erelchris Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
of course, it would always need to run at startup and remained open, what's the problem with that?


if it consumes just less than 5mb RAM then its okay to run, :)

im using Windows 8 now so i cant test it, im really sorry ..

Hi, this is a very nice idea. I however, could not get it working. It (said it) installed fine, but didn't really effect the taskbar in the intended way... it did (temporarily) make the system tray disappear, and the whole right half of the taskbar, but the taskbar was still rectangular (rather than trapezoidal), and furthermore was located from the bottom left-hand corner to about half the screen width to the right. [Note: Am using Win7 Ultimate x64 with UXstyles patch (other custom themes working fine).]

I will let you know if I get it working.

Questions:
1) Can this work with the taskbar positioned on the right or left of monitor's sides?
2) I am looking for a taskbar replacement that is NOT just a launcher, but the actual tasks-tabs, that could hopefully even show the "download progress" bars, and such. Other Docks don't work so well for tasks, but are more suited for shortcuts and folders.
Thanks for the help, and the effort at implementing such a nifty idea.

First of all, i really dont know if its working under Windows 7 x64 ..

this are the things you can try to make it work,
On your taskbar, Right Click and Properties > Put a check on Use Large ICONS..

if nothings changed, bad luck for you, just means its really not working on x64..


with your questions
1. Not yet, i have to redesign it with the windows at the left or right..but taskbar on top is OK provided that its also large icons.

2. its not really a taskbar replacement, because its actually a taskbar..but with indicator on running programs/pinned, also will show a progress bar..

**you can also resize the taskbar if you want to ;)

to resize the taskbar..

on windows x86 its really automatic, contained on the script but for windows x64 you have to do it manually..

Now here's the trick (its really hard to explain these)
**its like creating a quick launch to windows 7, i provided a link on the read me..do it first and you can actually follow these easily after)

1. First, create 2 BLANK folders (preferably on your My Documents)
2. Now right click on your taskbar > UNCHECK Lock Taskbar
3. Then Right Click taskbar > Toolbar > New Toolbar > Browse your 1st folder..do it again for your 2nd folder.
4. Now that you have 2, Right Click 1st folder on your taskbar > Uncheck Show text & title. do it again..
5. You'll notice that it now becomes a separator/slider..
6. The 1st one, slide it to the extreme left (almost at the start button)
7. You'll notice that the DOCK is now resizable as you move the first slider..
8. Now for the 2nd slider, move it and the dock also resizes, now adjust it to your preference..


Hope you understand this tutorial..
if you have any problems, just post it here..

again i havent tried this yet to Windows x64 but i suppose it should work..:)
