gdesklets obscure windows in kahakai


Hello all, I've looked around for a solution to this, but to no avail so far. Gdesklets used to work with kahakai, and since adding EMWH hints or some such, will work no longer. Basically they don't stick to the desktop, but float all over everything else. A little annoying.
adding
PHP Code:
if winName == 'gDesklets':
window.AlwaysontopOff()
window.AlwaysatbottomOn() 
is supposed to fix it, but i tried to do this in defNewWindow under MyConfiguration, and it didn't help. I'm running kahakai 0.5 and the latest gdesklets.
Anyone had this working???
Cheers
bbp

the correct code is:
Code:
if winName == 'gdesklets':
    window.AlwaysontopOff()
    window.AlwaysatbottomOn()
No caps in the name
And indent de ligns

cheers man, I'm very grateful you replied, but I tried exactly this:
Code:
        if winName == 'gdesklets':
            window.AlwaysontopOff()
            window.AlwaysatbottomOn()
and still doesn't work.. Have you got it working? Would you mind saying what version kahakai and gdesklets you're using?

        if winName == 'gdesklets':
            window.AlwaysontopOff()
            window.AlwaysatbottomOn()
oops, forgot to check instructions after the if: they are just wrong, it's:
Code:
        if winName == 'gdesklets':
            window.flags.alwaysontop = False
I know you fixed it, but... I was so shameful that I add to post...

Another thing, you don't need to add these instructions cuz the new gdesklets sits on the background by default

Try this then
PHP Code:
        if winName == 'gdesklets':
            
window.flags.alwaysontop False
            window
.flags.alwaysatbottom True

'fraid not. Bizarre, because it worked perfectly for a while. Don't worry about it though, i haven't really got time to fix it at the moment, and it doesn't really matter. Just out of interest though, are you running kahakai and gdesklets?
cheers

I use kahakai, before this morning I didn't use gdesklets, thanks to this thread, now I do...
Concerning your problem, the problem is the process names isn't 'gdesklets' but 'python'.
Don't try anything cuz it will put all python apps at bottom...
