need help with JWindow

hello guys,

i need some sort of urgent help with a jwindow.

i want to create a jwindow such that the window will cover the whole screen including the task bar.

what i did was i set the size of the jwindow to be more than the size of my screen resolution. But the problem is that the task bar is always in front of it.

i need help urgently.

thanks in advance.

Not sure if that's possible without JNI
TimYatesCommented:
yeah, you'd need to use JNI, OR you *could* use Java3d to create a fullscreen window...

This would be a complete hack though...
grim_toasterCommented:
Or select the option to not keep the taskbar on top of other open windows (right click on the taskbar, etc.)!  But, perhaps not what you're after!

Just with JAVA (SWING) :

         JWindow w = new JWindow();
         w.setSize(Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getScreenSize());  // That's NOT maximized, but covering the screen!
         w.show();
... all your screen is grey ...

Hope you like it,
;JOOP!

Doesn't work for me...

Funny: those 3 lines (only) of code do the trick on my laptop:
JAVA 1.4.2
Windows2000 with all servicepacks.

josiah007ng, how are you?

;JOOP!

Well, I tried on SuSE 7.3 and as CEHJ said, the "kicker" taskbar was not obscured .....
.... till I clicked the gray area!

Then my whole screen was grey, but ... I had to logout, because I forgot to set an EXIT-hook on the application.
So, glad that josiah007ng got his things working, but for myself: no more entire screens.
;JOOP!
