    Thanks, gues, for advices.
    %WS_EX_TOPMOST, sure, works, but this means the same as %HWND_TOPMOST.
    Maximizing - conagent's window is a "black box". It's easy to test results manually - not helps.

    I think if you just take out the titlebar (Max butt., Min butt, control butt, caption etc...) and then make you aplication maximize it will cover your whole screen.

    Don't know if this can be of any help, but I have done a PB screensaver
    here and used %WS_POPUP OR %WS_EX_TOPMOST as window style.

    Strange, but even this code works (Win98SE, task bar' "auto hide" is turned off)
    Code:
    #Compile Exe
    #Register None
    DefLng A-Z
    #Include "Win32Api.Inc"
    Function PbMain()
      Dialog New 0 ,"Sample", 0, 0, 0, 0, %WS_SYSMENU To hDlg
      SetWindowPos hDlg,0, 0, 0, GetSystemMetrics(%SM_CXSCREEN), GetSystemMetrics(%SM_CYSCREEN), 0
      Dialog Show Modal hDlg
    End Function
    I used a word "strange", because the same not works for conagent window (I mean to cover a task bar; with size of window all is clear).
    It possible to cover a task bar with %HWND_TOPMOST only.
    But %HWND_TOPMOST generates serious problems for other applications.
    In my PB/CC (after ConsoleTopMost / Stretch) I detect a moment when program becomes not foreground and automatic minimize a window (enough bad solution).
    May be somebody knows how to solve this question ? (%HWND_NOTOPMOST not works, because a task bar covers a window again).

    For many of my full-screen images the task bar is a distraction. Can you help?
