Position The Start-Button Anywhere On Your Taskbar (Views: 100)


Problem/Question/Abstract:

Hiding/displaying/enabling and disabling the start button seems an old trick, try this new one
Start moving the start button on the taskbar !!

Answer:

Well, Start A New Project, And Give The Form The Next Properties

Align = top;
width = screen.width;

and then, OnMouseMove exent place the following code ....

procedure TForm1.FormMouseMove(Sender: TObject; Shift: TShiftState; X,
  Y: Integer);
var
  p: tpoint;
begin
  getcursorpos(p);
  movewindow(FindWindowEx(FindWindow('Shell_TrayWnd', nil), 0, 'Button', nil), x, y,
    25, 25, true);
end;

Run your application, when moving your mouse on your form, you will notice that the start button is minimized and is moving along with your mouse, with some more work, you can make this invisible to make the statr button move on a pre-schedueled event !!


Some More Information....

begin

  movewindow(FindWindowEx(FindWindow('Shell_TrayWnd', nil), 0, 'ReBarWindow32', nil),
    x, y, 25, 25, true);
