Push the Screen Size and Task bar Height to another running process.
Posted on 2013-12-17
Hi, I have an Older Application that Docs a Popup Window to the Top of the Task bar, It also Sizes the Height of the Window to use all of the Available Screen Height.
It is sort of like the Start Menu of Windows XP - Windows 7
When it was designed, the Screen Sizes were 640 x 480, and it worked on that size..
Now On a 1600 x 1200 screen, it's all out of proportion.
What I'd Like to be able to Do, is make this app think the Task bar is HIGHER than it really is.
And Also Make it think the Screen Height is Less than it really is.
That way I could control Where it Docs to : the Virtual Task bar height.
And how Tall it becomes : Virtual Screen Height.
I don't have the Source for the Old App, as I did not Develop it.
But I'm sure it's making some call to the OS to Get the Task bar Height and Screen size.
So is there a way to :
1.) find out what API is being Called by this process to Get the Task bar Height, and Screen dimensions.
2.) Intercept the Call and Push Virtual numbers back instead of the Actual values.
In other words, I want to Trick the already running process into thinking the Screen and Task Bar are different from what they Really are..
