vb.net TopMost Windows Taskbar

Hello Experts,

There is an application that is written in Delphi that is full screen and it is set to be the topmost window. I dont have any control over this application. I wrote an application in vb.net and in the form load event I put "me.topmost = true". This works very well for keeping my vb.net application on top of the Delphi application at all times. The problem is that when the vb.net application has focus, the Windows taskbar is also viable. When the Delphi application has focus, the vb.net is still top most window and the taskbar is not visible.

What I want is for the vb.net to be in focus and be on top and for the Windows taskbar not to be visible. Is this possible?
