Hi.

I've read the win32.hlp and tried to understand how
SHAppBarMessage should be used to create a toolbar
like the startmenu.
I've got it to "lock" a specific area of the desktop so
no icons can be placed there. But I can't get it
to autohide the way the startmenu does. How will
I accomplish this?
Anyone have any source code on this matter?

reagrds,
Alexander
