A very good page for IE & Delphi (BandObjects) is
http://www.euromind.com/iedelphi/ie5tools/bandobjects.htm.

The example files will let you place a form on the taskbar.

But, all around the net people been trying to fix the bug that will let you open an unlimited number of bandobjects on your taskbar.

For an exampel, you make an app that will dock on the taskbar (just like Quick Launch).

When you want to show your form -> right click on the taskbar->toolbars->"your delphi band app" it will not just get marked, it will create a another item in this menu and mark that item (often with a another title than you choosed for the menu). This isn't very tidy and look very unproffesional.

MSDN's guide to BandObjects is hard to adopt to delphi. So my question is: anyone with some good tips how to make bandobjects from the ground up or know a fix for the existing band-components (i.e. only open _1_ band on the taskbar)?

Best regards / Gustaf

I enjoy programming in Delphi, but as far as creating this kind of applications, I would suggest using VC and ATL, as it will create DLLs with a smaller size and you can use the information and examples in MSDN for implementing this.

Thanks for your comment, sorinv.

Yeah, i know VC would be better to use in this case but I really don't feel learning a new devloping enviroment/programming language just for one program. (Can't afford VC either)


Anyone with a nice solution to fix the bugs in eurominds bandobjects files or some tips how to create this kind of application from the start?

I know someone of you smart people have an answer.

Best regards Gustaf

Make sure you test very well your app in Win NT and Win 2000. I made myself an explorer extension in Delphi that is doing allo of problems in Win NT (has sonething to do with Widechar strings I think, but I couldn't figure it out. Anyway, goodluck
