if you are familiar with Mac OS X then you might know that it's equivalent to the iBar, the "Dock" is very flexible, you can easily control it's size, position on the screen and if it will auto hide.
So perhaps you have wondered if you can do all this with the iBar too.
The answer is YES, and much more too.
In this short tutorial I will learn you three things:
1) Controlling the size of the iBar 2) Controlling the location of the iBar (bottom, sides or top) 3) turning on the auto-hide function of the iBar
Ill start with how to do this in gOS 1.0.1, but in gOS 2.0 its extremely simple to do.
1) to control the size of the iBar in gOS 1.0.1 you need to control it's "shelf" Right click on the iBar, and choose "shelf 1" > "Shelf Configuration". On the right hand side you can choose between Tiny, Small, Medium, Large and Huge.
2) To control the location of the iBar, you also need to control the shelf, this time it's location. Right click on the iBar, and choose "shelf 1" > "Shelf Configuration" Now click on the "Advanced" button In the box "layout", click on one of the check-boxes next to one of the four sides you want to be the iBar in. You would do best to avoid using any of the corners. Now click on "apply" and "close"
3) To control the auto hiding of the iBar, you also need to control the shelf, this time it's "auto hide" property. Right click on the iBar, and choose "shelf 1" > "Shelf Configuration" Now click on the "Advanced" button In the box "Auto Hide", turn on the check-mark "Auto hide the shelf" Click on "apply" and "close"
That is all there is to is, note that you can do this too with all the other "shelves", in gOS 1.0.1 this means the gadgets like the clock, but in gOS 2.0 the iBar is not located in a normal shelf, but now there are numerous other "shelves", like the shelf where the "About gOS" and "My gOS" icons reside, and others.
In gOS 2.0 the iBar is no longer located in a normal shelf, but changing it's properties is even easier, and it's less likely to FUBAR (damage) your iBar too.
1) controlling the size of the iBar: Right click on the iBar, and choose configure iBar In the box "appearance" there is a slider called Icon size, slide it and the iBar will change size.
2) Controlling the location of the iBar: In the same menu there is a box "orientation" Just click on the check-box next to the orientation of the iBar you want.
3) Turing on hiding the iBar: in the same menu there is a box "Hide Behaviour" Just click on the checkbox "auto hide", and slide the Hide Timeout to the left.
As you see, there is nothing too it, and there are masses of other options too! have fun.
