TaskBar is a REALbasic plugin control to create XP like task bars which are sometimes known as 'Explorer bars'.

It uses native theme rendering on Windows XP and emulates XP theme rendering on older Windows systems. On Mac OS X systems we tried to give the control a little Mac touch since Macs have no concept for this control.

What's New

Version 3.1.2:
  • Made TaskBar work on REALbasic 2011 r3 and later.

Requirements

  • Mac OS X 10.1 or later
  • REALbasic 5 or later

To pick up on the developers last comment - "Since Macs have no concept for this control" - why the hell would we want to??

The task bar compared to the dock and other Mac UI features is a poor cousin that I would not pollute any of my Macs with.

The only people that would bother with this are ex Windows users that need to learn to use the Mac OS properly instead of continuing on with ingrained Windows bad habits.

This is before we even get to asking why someone would want to add a 1999 Microsoft XP UI monstrosity to a 2011 Mac OS.

Brilliant! I think all RealBasic apps should use this control. Then we'd be able to trash them immediately, rather than waste time to find out they're crap.

This update has helped me to make this control better integrate with Mac OSX's style and look... true, this is more of a "windows" centric control, but it allows for some great, and easy to use, functionality in RB, regardless of the system. I had the plugin working quickly and easily, and the developer support is excellent!

That guy is right!, you shouldnt have rated the 1 star for its operation unless you tried it first.
As I am not contaminating my Mac installing THAT thing, I will not rate it 1 star for its stability or ease of use. Just 1 star for such a freaky concept, useless features and 0 value.

Good concept, really. As for the last guy who gave it 1 star and just said Windows sucks... don't RATE it unless you have tried it out.
