I want to create a custom toolbar plugin for the Windows system taskbar. I expect this to run on Windows XP. I'm mostly looking for a place to get started ... so does anyone have any links to some information I can read to get me started?
If you're still not clear on what I'm talking about, I'm talking about the taskbar that has the start button on it. You can have a quicklaunch toolbar with icons in it. I have also seen an internet explorer toolbar in the taskbar, and a microsoft windows media player control in the taskbar. I want to be able to make one of those myself and I don't know where to get started. :p
