set the form windowstate property  to wsmaximized & BorderStyle to "bsNone"


procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
var
 TaskBar: HWND;
Begin
 TaskBar := FindWindow('Shell_TrayWnd', nil);
ShowWindow(TaskBar, SW_HIDE);
end;

procedure TForm1.FormDestroy(Sender: TObject);
var
 TaskBar: HWND;
Begin
 TaskBar := FindWindow('Shell_TrayWnd', nil);ShowWindow(TaskBar, SW_SHOW);
end;
end.

peruzzi,

I would recommend you  place a temporary button on the form with

Close;

in the OnClick event,

then you can remove he button when your done developing your application
or when you have added an alternative method of exiting the application.

1. If You hide the taskbar like Shane advice there will be no taskbar when You switch from your application to another using Alt+Tab.
2. It is also possible to close your application by Alt+F4

No You don't understand me.

Very easy. You don't need to do all this other fancy stuff just set the properties of the form:

- Windowstate - wsmaximised
- BorderStyle - bsnone

And if you want to have it ontop of all programs set

-FormStyle - Fsstayontop

. To bring the program to the top call

formx.bringtofront
