Re: Information Applet Thingy

You could even go as far as adding a function to GnomeApp that can be
used to 'dock' your application into the panel when it's not being
used. I don't know if that kind of thing already exists or not ??

You could provide a gnome_app_dock_into_panel function
that would place a small icon into the 'DockApplet'. The applet could
provide a holding place for all the applications that are docked but
still need to display information of some sort, this is where the
difference between a tasklist and the 'DockApplet' could be drawn.

Just some thoughts.
