  • Newsticker

    Hello everybody!

    I'm currently working on a newsticker for online auctions, and because I don't want that the other windows always 'disappear' partially behind the newsticker bar (i.e. the window captions can't be read because the bar is over them) I'd like to 'resize' the desktop (well... if you see this nice effect, you'll understand what I mean: You perhaps know those ad banners from GotoWorld.com or AllAdvantage.com -- they 'resize' the desktop; all icons and windows are displayed on a smaller desktop).

    I've already tried something like

    Code:
    DIALOG SET SIZE GetDesktopWindow, x&, y&
    but it doesn't seem to work. I hope at least someone understands what I mean (as I'm not very good in describing anything... ;-) ).

    Any help is appreciated :-)

    Just found out that the function I need is
    Code:
    SHAppBarMessage
    . Easy job now ;-)
