Add options to an AppDocky?
Hi how do I use 'DOCKYGET_ContextMenu' to add a couple of options (alas AmiUpdate) to my program, allready used 'RegisterApp...' using applicaciotn.library and it shows my program in AmiDock with only one option 'Quit', and I would like to add 'Option1' and 'Option2' to such context menu. AOs4 wiki (http://wiki.amigaos.net/index.php/The_Docks_and_Dockies) shows some code, but still don't know where/how to put/add such code. Must I first "link" (like in app_lib/TestApp.c 'DummyDocky.c') my programm to my AppDocky or what? TIA

Ok did some tests, but I don't know where

'PopupMenuItemObject' comes from, can someone enlight me? Is there a way to add items to AppDock's contextmenu (not a Docky)? :-/ TIA

Take a look at
Take a look at this: http://sourceforge.net/p/qtamigaosnative/code/132/tree/trunk/src/gui/util/qsystemtrayicon_amiga.cpp?format=raw Basically what you have to do is create a library interface that implements the functions mentioned in the docky.library autodoc. Then AmiDock will call these functions when appropriate. You are probably mostly interested in these items: DOCKYGET_RenderMode DOCKYGET_Icon DOCKYGET_ContextMenu DOCKYSET_ContextMenuResult As you can see, it is a lot of code for a simple menu (even when you sort away all the redundant Qt code), which is just the way things are. If in doubt, ask! :)

Hi. Now I have contextmenu
Hi. Now I have contextmenu with some items :-) But how to "interconnect" the DOCKY (seems it's a separated task/process) with my main (mixer) program/task/process? Via Messages and Ports? (http://wiki.amigaos.net/index.php/Exec_Messages_and_Ports) Does amidock/docky has some in-built function for such purpose? My main problem now, from the AppDocky it works for rising/lowering/muting volume without problem, but to UNICONIFY mixer, it tries to create a new mixer instace, instead of uniconifying the already existing. Or maybe is some bad/missing code inside mixer? (I think this is the culprit)
