Hi All,

I am new to MFC and GUI,mostly worked on Java,so pls help out with MFC code.

Do u guys know the Microsoft Office Short Cut Bar?
the Start--->Settings--->Taskbar  ---. Auto hide feature

Well when u move the mouse over a particular region then that pops up and occupies a area which is pre defined.

Well my job is to do just that ,but for a application which is a subset of a Web Browser!

I think i will be posting queries here abt this App many more times and will go on asking questions as they become clearer to me!

Pls advice me.

Thanx in advance,
