The jqDock plugin for jQuery has been updated (version 1.5). Full Change Log.
This update fixes 1 minor bug, but adds a load of hooks and custom events that will enable more interaction with the plugin. It’s in response to requests for being able to determine when the dock has been initialised, and also to be able to ‘hide’ the dock if not in use.
Apologies (25th August 2010) : It would appear that during this most recent upgrade I ‘broke’ a number of the examples (8 to be precise) by loading a non-existent script. I have now fixed this mistake (and re-checked all the examples!) and I can only apologise for any inconvenience caused.
The changes in brief : there are now onReady, onSleep and onWake hooks in the options; there are custom events – dockshow, docksleep and dockwake – to listen for; there are custom events – dockidle and docknudge – that can be triggered; the labels are more customisable, with addition of an extra layer; and I have added an option that enables other elements on the page to ‘flow’ around the dock (I personally would not recommend using it, but it was requested so …).
All in all, it’s quite a big upgrade, and I hope you enjoy it. Oh, and I’ve added several more examples that use the new functionality.
