Hide taskbar

How to hide the taskbar.

Contributor: HUMBERTO LUIZ RAZENTE





These procedures hide and show the Win95 Taskbar. I'd like to control

whether or not all the items in the Start, like Program, Find, Help, appear

or not from my application. Reason: my custumer does not want his

employee opening other windows, only my application. My app should

make them appear when closed.



(I got them from ZD Tips)



procedure hideTaskbar;

var wndHandle : THandle;

    wndClass : array[0..50] of Char;

begin

 StrPCopy(@wndClass[0], 'Shell_TrayWnd');

 wndHandle := FindWindow(@wndClass[0], nil);

 ShowWindow(wndHandle, SW_HIDE); // This hides the taskbar

end;



procedure showTaskbar;

var wndHandle : THandle;

    wndClass : array[0..50] of Char;

begin



 StrPCopy(@wndClass[0], 'Shell_TrayWnd');

 wndHandle := FindWindow(@wndClass[0], nil);

 ShowWindow(wndHandle, SW_RESTORE); // This restores the taskbar

end;
