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

yeah, you'd need to use JNI, OR you *could* use Java3d to create a fullscreen window...

This would be a complete hack though...

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!

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!
