as some may have guessed, i am making a screensaver like application. i've done the usual stuff : form that is maximized with no border. when it is run, it covers the taskbar. but if the task manager is open, it shows under it. how can i make it so that it obscures the task manager (and any other high priority window that may be open).

thanks
