    [OPEN] [#1820] StartMenu and Taskbar should display top instead of bottom

    Hi Sir,

    I have a requirement that start menu and taskbar need to be display top instead of bottom(Its should be configurable based on customer requirement- as of now I need to move to the top of the desktop).

    Here is the screen shot for your reference.

    Currently start menu and taskbar are in bottom.

    Thank you,
    Vamsi.

    Hello @Vamsi!

    Use the Desktop Taskbar's Dock setting.

    <TaskBar Dock="Top">
    Hope this helps!

    Hello again, @Vamsi!

    I have given it a better look and found it is not supported in the Desktop component. Docking the taskbar to anything not bottom is simply not developed by the client-side code provided by Sencha, so there's not really much we can do, unless we take the component over and develop the feature therein.

    In any case, I've logged issue #1820 in GitHub. No matter this issue is implemented or the Dock properly hid from the component, the fact it suggests you can set a dock position is in the least, misleading.

    We tried a simple override to allow the Dock setting in the Taskbar component, but it only turned out into further issues, like icons showing behind the taskbar and the start menu showing off-screen; so I'm afraid for now we should assume that feature as not supported for now.

    Sorry for the let-down, and hope you understand.

    The Desktop component doesn't support docking of the start bar.

    We are going to take a quick look into the Desktop to see if this feature request can be supported.

    Hello Vamsi!

    Unfortunately we couldn't work on this feature still. We cannot give you a deadline on that as we have to focus on functionality that is already implemented (bugs) before we handle feature requests. This does not mean we are not going to work on it ever, but we simply cannot give you a precise deadline on this one.

    Hope you understand.

    Thank you for your reply.

    For time being is there any option to display the taskbar to right side or left side instead of top.

    As our customer wants to display some other side instead of bottom.

    Thank you,
    Vamsi.

    Currently, that feature does not exist as a setting in the Desktop component.
