Mac Like Dock using WPF

15 08 2007

Thanks to Lee for his excellent post on Mac OS X Dock in WPF 🙂

I was able to get the logic on how to implement the Mac OS style and I have succeeded in bringing the reflection down

Below is a screenshot

I have to implement a “real” dock yet, but this forms a good base and prototype 🙂

I am planning to make this as a user control where one would be able to add buttons(which may be images) and add events for the respective buttons.

If you think you could help, do leave a comment 🙂 . Currently I dont have any place where I could put my source up, but will update once I host it somewhere.

Well try to see if you can make the background of the app completely transparent similar to the Windows Mobility Center or the Dashboard Gallery windows.

However I am going through problems with your RSS. I don’t know the reason why I cannot subscribe to it.
Is there anyone else having similar RSS problems?

Anyone who knows the solution will you kindly respond? Thanks!!
