i'm really trying to make something wildly functional and easy to use, so plase post opinions. i've tried adding a recycle bin at the bottom but couldn't interact with it like the real recycle bin.. i also have the system tray in but i'm having problems with the positioning. hoping to work through some of these things

forgot to post the functons.

the launchpad can display a full expanded taskbar, your desktop icons, my documents, bookmarks,clipboard, show all windows, hide all windows, and display properties. you could add additional shortcuts or folders.

I like it a lot. It's almost like a minimalistic LiteStep theme. I'd be glad to help with anyhting you need, and I'm pretty good at ObjectBar. Shoot me an email (wjb2008 @ computermail.net) and lemme know hat your lookin' for. I could make a number of decent skins for this pretty quickly.

default launch for on call is Winkey+z. if you have a mouse button to which you can define a shortcut, and would like to launch the menu with that mouse button you can change the default launch shortcut.
(i have a logitech mous with a '4th' button.. i have that button set to launch an obscure key stroke like shift+f9. that way, while working i can hit this '4th' mouse button and launch the menu. very handy.) to do this, right click anywhere in the on call menu and choose 'properties'. when you get the bar tree, the 'on call' bar. choose the 'Hot key' tab, and define your hot key.

don't want the menu to pop up with a keystroke? on my notebook, i dock on call on the left of my screen, so i simply move my mouse to the edge of the screen and it rolls out. while in the On Call properties, the 'on Call' main bar and choose the 'sizing and positioning' tab. choose to dock the bar on the left side of the screen.

skinning: in my screenshot i have oncall using my windowblind, Regeeked luna. oncall will copy your windowblind menu style as well.

i have a design for oncall which will be used in future versions.. overlay, i'll be in touch to see how you could help make this happen

untill then - i will try to get permissions to package regeeked as on call's default look because.. it just looks so good

i can't seem to make the floating bars stay in the same locations through different resolutions. if you bring up oncall and the launch pad is off to the side, open its properties (right click on it, choose properties) and the launch pad bar. in 'sizing and positions' tab, have it dock to a screen side, then turn off the dock option. the bar should sit off to the side but at least be completely on screen.

? it takes on the look of your windowblind, by default... so change your windowblind

i'm working on a skin for it, tho.. it'll be up soon.
