Docking can`t be resized?

If I use too many icons on DeskTool, it shows them all when it`s NOT docked, but not when it IS docked. How can I dock it to the top of the screen, and adjust the height of the window? I tried altering the XP skin ini file, but it still locks in at the same height. I`m going to look for a different program to use, if there`s no way to make DeskTool adjust its height.

Thank you for writing us.
Unfortunately we haven`t add resizing of DeskTool panel in docking mode.
At the moment it is impossible to change the geometrical sizes of the DeskTool panel in a docking mode. Therefore many elements can cause such a problem. It is impossible to resolve this roblem by changing parameters of visual style.

We will add possibility of changing the panel sizes in docking mode in the next version of DeskTool.

There are alternative variants allowing to resolve this problem.
1. Switch the panel in float mode. In this mode Desktool will automatically fit the sizes of the panel necessary to display all objects.
2. Reorganize the DeskTool objects using the menu.

I tried using the included XP skin, and resized the height of "top2.bmp". That also increased the size of the docked window. It doesn`t look good (unless you change all of the bmps to grey), but I only use Desktool to push down my windows so they`ll be out of the way of my "floating users" in Trillian.
