I think, this is the best volume docklet. Mix of brain and beauty. Bravo to fedroponce for creating such an innovative docklet. I have some suggestions, which hopefully would be heard by the author. For functionality. Addition to scroll, left-click and hold to increase volume, right-click and hold to decrease volume. One left-click will open a scroller, like: http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=644&libid=34 For looks. Option to set how big the percentage and mute letters (docklet info). If possible, where the letters will appear too (which side of the image). If above are done, I think it would be nice to have an option to disable the label that shows the current volume. However, even without those suggestions, this docklet already rocks. Thank you, fedroponce.

Based on your feedback I have done a few updates to the docklet... I did not have the time to do it all (some stuff I need to research on how to do it), but I hope this meets some of your expectations.

I have been looking for something like this - thanks so much. You do such good work. The design is nice and clean and the functionality is wonderful.

I have made a few updates yesterday... I have not posted the updated docklet here yet (since I would like to have some feedback on these changes before making it available here).
You may download the updated docklet from WWW Link
In a few days, if nothings gets into, I will update the docklet here.

Nice work, I like functional stuff that looks cool too! My problem is that the only way I can raise or lower the volume is with the integrated volume -/+ on my laptop. The -/+ on the keyboard and my scroll wheel on my wireless USB mouse arn't working. Any ideas to make this work. I'd really like to make it work w/ my mouse!

Works great on my laptop since there is no volume level indicator on my screen when I adjust the volume using built in volume switch. Are there reflective icons for this?

Well, no... I am no graphic artist... it took me more time to create the graphics compared to the docklet programming itself... I think we should ask the skinners to create a better icon set for rhis docklet... I would be happy to integrate it if I get a better icon.

Well... I have both a lap & a desktop (with several USB mice)... I will test the lap again to check if I missed something.

Very nicely done. At last a docklet without hassle.

I like the docklet but it does not work sometimes. When I first add the docklet I can adjust the volume by scrolling with the mousewheel but later on I can not adjust the volume anymore by scrolling. And double clicking does not mute the sound. I have to remove the docklet and add it again to make it work. I am using Vista Ultimate 64bit also.

Recenlty niklasw99 (from aqua-soft forums) published a nice OSX-inspired iconset for my docklet.
You may download it from: Iconset Download

First of all, your Master Volume Docklet is amazing and really usefull. Yet I miss one little feature. The thing is, I have 2 Audio Devices installed and the Master Volume Docklet selects the first entry in the list of available devices. Now, I want it to control the other because the first one is just my headphone for VoIP. It would be helpful Master Volume Docklet selects the preferred device, or even be able to configure, which device to control.

In my development & testing machines I only have a single Audio Device, so I have no way to test what you are asking for. Could you please PM (or email me) so we can setup some way to develop and test what you are requesting? BTW, are you using WindowXP or Vista?

I�m sorry... I don�t know why but it does not work on my computer. I have a laptop and the only value it shows is -1% or 1% when I click on "Update now". And nothing happens when I select the other values when right-click on it and click on 50% or 100% or any other value... it stays 1% and doesn�t change the volume. Please help me figure out what�s wrong. I realy whant this docklet! Thank you!!

Hello, first of all, thanks for developing this one, it's the best volume docklet i've found, and believe me... i've been searching!.
The problem is the following: It was working smoothly on my XP machine, now i have one with Vista (Home Premium), and objectDock. I can add the docklet, I can mute(dblClick), i can pop-up the volume mixer(long left-click), and i can change the volume with right-click menu.
I can't scroll-up/down or use +/- keys to change volume, and also the volume level doesn't refresh in the docklet (unless I refresh it manually).
Do you think this bug is due to Vista? or Vista-enhanced user security?, or maybe it's the fact I use a wireless mouse?... maybe you have a hint I could use to have this fully-working... that would be just great, or maybe another user has had this bug and worked it around?... it would be just great to be able to use the scroll-wheel .
Thanks in advance!!!

As a matter of fact my main development environment is Windows Vista, I've been contacted previously by some users reporting that the +/- options are now working specially on some laptop machines (is yours a laptop?). On the other hand, I'm too using a wirless mouse (actually I have about 3 different optical/wireless mice that I used while developing it). Does the volume refreshes if it is changed via a third application (like vista's volume applet?)
