cu2cool, if you have the newest release (update 7 released mar 22) the expanded windows should be closed on startup. If they're not, let me know and I'll try to figure out what else could be the problem.

Hi!! hey, very nice work!! I like it so much!! But, what if I just want the start button? I like everything but I have found some other stuff and I just want to add the start button.

Thanks!

Ozkar, do you have the DesktopX builder? If you do I can walk you through exporting the start menu button on its own, its not too hard. If you don't, give me an email address I can send it to. I don't think I'll upload it on its own on wincustomize since its such a simple object.

Yes! I do have the DesktopX builder!

Sorry for the late replies, I've been away for the week.

MariusOX, the sidebar should already work for 1280x800. If it looks funny let me know and I'll try to troubleshoot.

jimmyy, sorry, I don't know the script but I glanced through it a bit and line 19 seems to just get a list of processes. Unless you switched to vista or something, I don't know why there would be a problem there. If I have time I'll spend a little time looking at it more thoroughly

Ozkar, your reply for some reason got lost. To export the start menu button on its own,

1. open the vista sidebar
2. right click on the desktopx icon in your system tray and select switch to desktopx builder
3. right click on the start button and select export
4. select "export as packaged object (.dxpack) and click "selected and related"
5. push next and in the next window select where you want to save the new object. When you open this object it should be the start menu button on its own.

Hey kennkh, I did DL the latest version. I'm using Desktop X 3.1 Pro. Using either builder or client still gives me the same problem at startup. Is it just because I don't have the latest version of Desktop X?

BTW are there instructions on how to use this object, cuz I'm having trouble figuring out how to add icons to the quick launch thing on the side bar.

cu2cool, I don't know what the problem could be, the newest version should hide all those windows on startup. Do other objects with hidden windows on startup hide correctly for you? Its probably not your DesktopX version since I'm using 3.1 as well. Try running the widget version of the sidebar and see if that one works.

You can also try using the builder to look through the script which hides those windows on startup. In the builder, right click on the background bar and select "edit script". Let me know what you see in the window that pops up, and I'll try to troubleshoot.

Sorry I don't have any instructions written up for the thing. The quick launch object on the bar can't be customized right now. It was meant to be a placeholder until I could do something more configurable. If you have any questions about the other objects, however, just post on here and I'll try to help you out.

ozkar, no problem, I'm glad you got it to work.

I don't know who it was that made them (_Martin_?), or if anybody has them at all, but I'd like to request the images for/from the weather widget for use elsewhere (personal mostly - if used publically, credit will be aknkowledged). You may just email them to me if you like as opposed to hosting. Either way works fine. valor_net at yahoo dot com

This is probably gonna sound like a real stupid question, but how do I write notes and such. That is a note box in the expandable area isn't it?

CH3NO2, that's where the RSS news feed headers show up. If you're not familiar with RSS, here is an article about it on wikipedia: link. If you need help on setting up your feeds on the sidebar, let me know.
