    Win32 API - Creating a Status bar type App


    I've got and idea to create a application that behaves similar to the windows
    status bar. That is

    - it docks to the top/side/bottom of the desktop
    - windows when maximised lock on to it (and don't siappear behind it).

    What API calls should I be looking at?
    Are there any examples around where similar functionality has been implemented?

    Thanks

    Goto www.vbaccelerator.com and look for the SHAppBar class wrapper sample.
    That's what you need to use in order to play nice with the shell.
