separate panel or task list for mimized and not-minimized windows

I am using OpenBox and I am looking into how to have two task lists (or panels), one with minimized windows and second with non-minimized windows. xfce-panel can show only minimized windows, but cannot show only non-minimized windows.

Is there any panel/task list which can do this?

Never heard about such functionality!
Are you looking to hide minimized windows? If so then I think you're looking for something like Alltray @ http://alltray.trausch.us/

Here is what it says : "AllTray is a program you can use on Unix-like systems such as GNU/Linux or FreeBSD running the X Window System to dock any application which doesn’t have a native tray icon into the system tray/notification area."

Good luck wink

Thanks for a hint, but Alltray is not what I am looking for.

All what I found right now is that you may set properties on windows you don't want to show up in taskbar playing a little with "wmctrl -r yourapp -b toggle,skip_taskbar" and "-b toggle,skip_pager".

man wmctrl for more infos.

Take a look at this too http://forum.xfce.org/viewtopic.php?id=6755

wmctrl -r :ACTIVE: -b toggle,skip_taskbar is interesting possibility. I can use wmctrl to apply skip_taskbar to do custom "archive" command - minimize and apply skip_taskbar. But only way how to list such a "archived" windows and possible unminimize + remove skip_taskbar would be custom Openbox pipe menu. It is a way, but I was hoping for simpler one.
