    Hi:

    I know every application running appears on the dock. Is there any way to have an application running and not see it on the dock? something like a hidden running application...

    Thanks

    Have a look at Dockless. It hasn't been updated in a while, but everything I've read says that it's still working fine on new systems.

    I have an Intel Core 2 Duo iMac with 10.4.8 and Dockless works perfectly.

    Launch System Preferences and click to open the Accounts System Preference pane. From the row of tab buttons, select Login Items. Uncheck "Dockless" and then reboot.

    Any help?

    I will see about coding a small utility that will enable the LSUIElement in the info.plist

    This will hide the whole application however from my knowledge. its great for apps like Hardware Growl though.

    PS. If you want to manually do it google for LSUIElement

    Scary! I usually try to not mod too much of my system's UI for this very reason.

    Thanks guys. I already fixed it. I was sure it had something to do with dockless and the way I played with it before uninstalling. What I did was to install it back, then unchecked the boxes I had checked (they were exactly the same ones coming on the dock), rebooted and da-da. Problem fixed. I uninstalled dockless after that. all is good!

    Thanks for your help

    So what you experienced was exactly what you told dockless to do.
