I have been through MFC document, reading about AppBarData stuff.. well it just gives me a clue, but I have trouble convert its C++ code sample to Delphi.

Docking in Delphi, so far I can see it is all about docing controls in the same app. But I want it to dock with desktop. Like MS Office start bar.

Any suggestions or books I should go to?
