Thread: Taskbar-like app

    Taskbar-like app

    Hello,

    I need to build a VB app which behaves like the Windows taskbar, which
    means, capable to keep itself always on top and to limit the other
    applications' workspace (for example, when other applications maximizes, I
    want them to do so up to my application, which must be visible at every
    time, just like the Windows taskbar). Could it be that to achieve this it is
    necessary to change the dimensions of the desktop or something like this?

    If anyone has an idea about how to implement this kind of behavior in my
    app, please let me know.

    Thanks,

    Leonardo,

    Scroll to the bottom of this site:

    Look for the TAppBar class. It's also distributed via
    www.vbAccelerator.com if that gives you an idea of it's quality.

    HTH,
