Hiding/showing the Windows taskbar

Answer:

Use these functions to hide or show the Windows taskbar programmatically from your Delphi application:


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;
