Just some of the private CoreDock functions, which are used by the Dock prefpane. Framework: /System/Library/Frameworks/ApplicationServices.framework/Frameworks/HIServices.framework

typedef enum { kCoreDockOrientationTop = 1, kCoreDockOrientationBottom = 2, kCoreDockOrientationLeft = 3, kCoreDockOrientationRight = 4 } CoreDockOrientation;

typedef enum { kCoreDockPinningStart = 1, kCoreDockPinningMiddle = 2, kCoreDockPinningEnd = 3 } CoreDockPinning;

typedef enum { kCoreDockEffectGenie = 1, kCoreDockEffectScale = 2, kCoreDockEffectSuck = 3 } CoreDockEffect;

// Tile size ranges from 0.0 to 1.0. extern float CoreDockGetTileSize(void); extern void CoreDockSetTileSize(float tileSize);

extern void CoreDockGetOrientationAndPinning(CoreDockOrientation *outOrientation, CoreDockPinning *outPinning); // If you only want to set one, use 0 for the other. extern void CoreDockSetOrientationAndPinning(CoreDockOrientation orientation, CoreDockPinning pinning);

extern void CoreDockGetEffect(CoreDockEffect *outEffect); extern void CoreDockSetEffect(CoreDockEffect effect);

extern Boolean CoreDockGetAutoHideEnabled(void); extern void CoreDockSetAutoHideEnabled(Boolean flag);

extern Boolean CoreDockIsMagnificationEnabled(void); extern void CoreDockSetMagnificationEnabled(Boolean flag); // Magnification ranges from 0.0 to 1.0. extern float CoreDockGetMagnificationSize(void); extern void CoreDockSetMagnificationSize(float newSize);

To be notified of changes to the Dock (by and SystemPreferences), register your class as observer to the distributed notification “” (using NSDistributedNotificationCenter).

TonyArnold says: there is a more up-to-date version, plus some new calls at
