Set Screen Working Area!!!

Hi All,

I am using VC++ 5 Professional Edition to implement my project.

How can I set the screen working area after opening my app.?
I hope I can place my application just over the window's taskbar. The other opened windows will be resized automatically (ie. no overlapping will be occured).

I want to implement the same thing as the software ICQ.
When we move the software ICQ to the right side of the screen, the maximized window will be adjusted its size automatically.

The only difference between us is I want to place my application at the bottom of the screen (just over the taskbar).

How can I do this?

Dear MadShi,

I have downloaded the sample from microsoft called Appbar.exe. This example demonstrates how to create an application desktop toolbar by using win32 programming skill.
Sorry..because I don't have much experience in win32 programming.

Thus I want to know can I create an application desktop toolbar by using the MFC Wizward?

Thanks for your opinion!!!


Umhh... Sorry, I'm a Delphi programmer. I could give you a complete working Delphi example, but I don't know MFC at all...   :-(

Regards, Madshi.
