Problem:
My program needs to fit asides every window in focus. It's easy to do it as long as they're not maximized. I need to tell the window or exe that it is still maximized, so it doesn't behave differently. It is something like the taskbar does. How can I do the same?

It is something like an always on top program, but it is not allowed to be in the way of any menu, buttonbar or window at all, so it has to stay at the side or top of the screen and changes somehow the coordinates of it, so the other programs run like normal. An example program of such is Starfish Internet Utilities, and I need about the same.

Anyone any idea for an API-call, some C(++) code, VB-code or whatever what to achieve this?

Thanks in adv.
