Is this going to have a Leopard update? It doesn't seem to work...

Before I found this widget, I was considering trying to write my own to provide this functionality... thankfully, the developer beat me to it (and did a MUCH better job than I could have!)

I find this widget indispensable, and would recommend it to all.

Also, a big thank you to the developer for creating this, and for providing it for free!

Simply the best widget! I would love to see it grow and become much more popular.

Please, help me! I don't understand how to add apps to the Mondo Dock. Please! What does 'drag from the Finder' mean? Thanks in advance.

My Recomendation: If you want to clean up your dock, just drop a folder into the right side. Fill the folder with aliases to the apps you use most often. Then you don't have to waste dock space with a bunch of dead app icons.

That's what I do. Nice and simple. Right click, start typing the app name, hit return to launch.

Personally I found Mondo Dock to be clumsy in its configuration and usage. Any widget that requires drag&drop is going to be clumsy though.

Others may find it useful. But I suspect it's because they don't know you can just drop a folder into the dock.

My question is how do you add apps to the Mondo Dock? What is drag&drop? Thanks in advance.

Strange - exactly this didn't work with me: dragging sth. into this free space.

Sounded great, but I can't drag anything into it. It's either the Dashboard (Mondo) or the Finder. Thus, it's useless for me.

Some minor source code changes are required to make this work on Leopard, but once done it is a very nice tool. Thanks for creating it Gandreas!

Two bugs are fixed in the notes below. offsetWidth and offsetHeight are not always defined when used, causing the flip problem. Also, when you mouse over an icon the highlighting never turns off, causing residue. Both are no longer an issue with this patch.

Here is the diff between modified and original source code. You can open the wdgt file in Dashcode to make these changes.

I had used MondoDock in tiger and am psyched about this patch, but ... I'm not sure what the edits mean. Which side is new and old?
The background-color lines exist as shown, do i delete them?
Is there a height line to go with width at 1239 & 1316?
Thanks,

Curious, I never noticed that MacUpdate completely mangled that post. Here's a second try on the diff...

Well, all the data is there now, though the backslashes before the less-than signs should be ignored.

DashboardWidgets, which ER3L has a better posting system, so as long as it stays up that's a better place to get this info from.

rtcruz1 had trouble on 05 Jan 2008
I can't get this to work in Leopard. I hit the "i" icon, and the that were in my mondo dock, totally disappear...

I don't know why this shouldn't work in Leopard.

Can someone help?
