Deskbar's meny
Listan över aktiva program


Deskbar är den lilla panelen som som standard är placerad i det övre högra hörnet på skärmen. Det är Haiku's version av Windows aktivitetsfält med startknappen. Deskbar innehåller en meny från vilken du kan starta program och inställningar, ett verktygsfält med en klocka och längst ner en lista över de program som är aktiva.


You can move the Deskbar to any corner or as a bar along the upper or lower border of the screen by gripping the knobbly area on one side of the tray (see arrows above) and drag & drop it into the new position.
You can also fold it into a more compact layout by drag & dropping the knobbly area onto Deskbar's Leaf menu. Being only the height of a regular window tab, even windows that take up the whole screen won't obscure the Deskbar tray with its clock and icons.

By gripping the other knobbly widget of the tray, you can change the width of the Deskbar by dragging the mouse left or right:


A wider Deskbar allows for more icons in the tray on a single row. It also truncates longer application names in the list of running programs less often, especially if you use larger icons.

The Deskbar preference panel is divided into three sections.


The following settings don't apply to your installed applications, but to the behavior and visuals of the list of running applications.

Sort running applications Sorts the list of running programs alphabetically.
Tracker always first Even if you sort alphabetically, the Tracker entry always stays first in the list.
Show application expander Provides a small widget to show/hide all windows of a program directly under its entry in the Deskbar.
Expand new applications Newly launched programs have their windows automatically expanded under their entry in the Deskbar.
Hide application names Removes the text labels of running applications.
Icon size Adjusts the icon size of running applications.


While the first couple of menu items of the Deskbar are fixed, you can customized the ones below Shutdown....
Here you can set the number of recent documents, folders and applications that are shown in their menu in the Deskbar, or if you want to see them at all.
The button Edit in Tracker... opens the folder ~/config/settings/deskbar/menu/. In it you'll find the files and folders that appear in the Deskbar, by default these are Applications, Demos, Deskbar applets, and Preferences.
You can delete or add entries like links to applications, documents or even queries by simply copying/deleting them to/from this folder.

Programs installed from a package automatically put an entry into the Deskbar. Depending on the number of packages you have installed, this can become a bit crowded. If you prefer to have total control, and only want to see applications you link there yourself (possibly in categorizing sub-folders), here's how to do it:
You create a link of the menu folder in ~/config/settings/deskbar/ and rename to menu_entries. From Terminal that is achieved with:

ln -s ~/config/settings/deskbar/menu ~/config/settings/deskbar/menu_entries


Finally, the preferences for the Deskbar window.

Always on top The Deskbar always stays above all other windows.
Auto-raise The Deskbar pops to the front when the mouse pointer touches where the Deskbar meets the screen edge, and is lowered when it leaves the Deskbar area.
Auto-hide The Deskbar is reduced to only a few pixels and only pops up if the mouse pointer touches them.

index Verktygsfältet


Bland mycket annat innehåller verktygsfältet klockan. För musen över den för att visa dagens datum, eller klicka för att visa en kalender. Höger-klicka för att gömma/visa klockan eller starta Tid där tiden kan ändras.

Any program can install an icon in the tray to provide an interface to the user. The email system, for instance, shows a different symbol when there's unread mail and offers a context menu to e.g. create or check for new mail. ProcessController is another example that uses its icon in the tray to provide information (CPU/memory usage) and to offer a context menu.

index Listan över aktiva program


You can change to a specific running application by clicking on its entry in the Deskbar and choosing (one of) its windows from the submenu. By right-clicking you can Hide/Show all windows or Close all and with them the entire application.

A SHIFT CTRL click on an application hides all its windows, a CTRL click shows them again.

When using the "expander" setting to show all windows of an application, you can middle-click on a window or app to start a new instance. For example, middle-clicking a running StyledEdit will open a new document window.
Maybe more useful: while holding SHIFT, a middle-click on a window closes it. Handy when you'd like to close some of many open Tracker windows, for example.

Sometimes an application may hang and even though all its windows are gone, the entry in the list of running applications in the Deskbar just won't disappear. In such a situation you use the Vulcan Death Grip to get rid of it: hold SHIFT CTRL ALT and click on the offending entry in the Deskbar. Fascinating!

Om du har aktiverat visning av program-expanderare i Deskbars inställningar, kan du expandera/kollapsera listan över programmens fönster.

In front of every application's window is a symbol providing info on its state. A bright symbol means a window is visible, a dark one that it's minimized. Three lines in front of a symbol shows that it's not on the current workspace.
