     Now you can draw text with each icon and set the the position (top, right, etc.) via gdiPosition variable and I fixed the App.Path thing, the memory leak was allready fixed last time ... Here is the transparent version of my DirectX Program Dock, but this time based on GDI+. Big thanks to Apeiron for his Per Pixel Transparency code which made this version possible. Again you need to create a folder called (“icons”) in App.Path and put some PNG-Files in it. For the screenshot I used a PNG set from but you can add any 128x128 PNG files you want.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
