Change Windows desktop usable area
Posted on 2011-04-19
I'm working on creating an information bar that will run on all computer in my organization (XP, Vista and 7). This bar would sit at the top of the screen and display information about the system. What i'm looking for is a way to make the desktop area used by the program unusable by other programs. Basically, I need to apply the same effect the Windows Start Menu toolbar has to my program, where it would push everything below it so that it wouldn't cover a part of maximized windows or desktop icons. Is there a way to do this in VB.net?
