SHAppBarMessage: How to create toolbar

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

Hi Barry, would you mind sending me this component, too? I can offer you a nice object implementation of IShellFolder, IShellLink and all this pidl stuff in return (it's not ready yet, am still working on it)...  :-)
