i'm letting my program automatically changing from 640x480 to 800x600 (when it's valid of course),

but now the taskbar doesnt move to the bottom of the screen, but stays somewhere on the desktop. this is very annoying. i tried to broadcast a WM_DISPLAYCHANGE, but it doesnt work.

i'd be very happy :-), if someone helped me

thanks.

Try adding CDS_UPDATEREGISTRY to the flags of ChangeDisplaySettings.
The taskbar gets its information on screen resolution from the registry.

Hi brutebass,

try this:

SystemParametersInfo(SPI_SETDESKWALLPAPER,0,0     ,SPIF_SENDCHANGE);
