|Shows the dock widget for the current frame window.|
The dock widget is a small widget that docks in the KDE panel.
It shows a small icon of the earth and eventually displays four squares that cover this icon: the bottom left square appears when there is some new text in any console window, the square becomes red if the text is highlighted.
The bottom right square appears when there is some new text in any channel window, and it becomes red when the text is highlighted.
The upper right square refers to query windows and the upper left one to any other kind of window (dcc , links...).
If you move the mouse over the dock widget a tooltip will show you the last lines of the "new" text in all these windows.
This is useful when you keep the main KVIrc window minimized and you're working on something else: if the dock widget shows nothing but the earth icon , nothing is happening in the main KVIrc window. If the dock widget shows one or more white (or red) squares , you can move the mouse over and check what's happened exactly and eventually bring up the main KVIrc window by clicking on the widget.
|The dock widget is currently working in KDE compilation mode only: it relies on the KWin implementation of the Window Manager interaction protocol.|
