Javascript Desktop

12 posts in this topic

Does anyone know how to make the desktop look like this: sept3-desktop.jpg

Apparently it is made up with javascripts, but I searched Google and Yahoo but could not find out how.

P.S.: I am only wanting to know how he got the icons and stuff in a menu form, not the theme or whatever.

javascripts? LoL if it's javascript it's the best desktop i've seen :blink:

but hey, look at that taskbar icon, the one round blue with a white "C" it's a coolmon config ;)

at least the right side one. don't know about the config on the left side but i think it's samurize, not sure :/

more about coolmon?

or it could be similar to my desktop thing. i have an active desktop thing that is essentially a webpage with links and such

no huge icons all over the place just basic text links. only changing anything involves opening an html editor instead typically heh

@John0877 how'd you get the commandline there, that would be really helpful :P

also ive thought for a long time of making a flash desktop but i dont know the command to run a program the colsest i could get was to be forced to "open from location" each time i clicked on one of my icons.

code for the command line box is:

<div id="console" style="position: absolute; left: 351px; bottom: 1px">
<span class="title">c o m m a n d   l i n e : : . .</span><br />
<input type="text" class="textbox" onkeypress="if(event.keyCode==13) { ShellExJ(this.value); this.value='' }" />
</div>

code for running a program is (Unreal Tournament 2004 as example)

<div id="progList" style="position: absolute; left: 1105px; top: 61px">
 <div align="right">
<span class="title">G a m e s</span><br />
<a target="_self" onClick=" ShellExJ('C:/UT2004/System/UT2004.exe')" href="javascript:;">UT2k4 :: </a><br />
 </div>
</div>

Will this work with the actionscript build into flash?

no idea. havent coded flash myself.

this was just the code in the prepackaged active desktop thing i got a while back and modified to my own needs slightly

Hey there,

Do you need any other type of code in the active desktop html file?

I've tried inputting this, but I can't actually enter any commands from the box that appears.

Thanks!

hi, i've discovered active desktop customization in this topic, but the example given doesn't work out of the box, so i've searched around the net to look for some info... i've found this example working:

<html>
<head>
<!--META HTTP-EQUIV=Refresh CONTENT="600; URL="desktop.html"-->
<title>tsDesk .42</title>

<!-- tsDesk .34 -->
<!-- by threeseven -->
<!-- complete code revamp by LonelyKing -->

<!-- have fun! -->

<!-- Cascading Style Sheet -->
<link href="activedesktop.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />

<!-- Applications Javascript -->
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
function ShellExJ(filename)
{
 var folder = filename.substr(0, filename.lastIndexOf('/'));
 var objShell = new ActiveXObject("Shell.Application");
 objShell.ShellExecute(filename, '', folder, 'open', 1);
}
</script>
</head>

i guess this gives you the idea of how the things should work...

if you google you'll find a lot of stuff

i guess a good starting point could be this:

http://64.233.183.104/search?q=cache:SQ6Hr...+ShellExJ&hl=en

provided by google cache beacuse the original page is no longer avaible

i hope it could be useful

bye
