WinCE Task Bar

Hi All,

Iam developing a GUI for a WinCE 5.0 device on VB.NET with CF 2.0. I need to hide the task bar programatically on launching my application and occupy the full screen. The user should not have access to WinCE desktop like a kiosk application. How can this be done. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi,

    I don't know how you can write it in VB, but I supposed that is similar with VC++ (regarding API functions).
    This is a code written in C++ (MFC), which hide the taskbar

    //............................................
    //here take a pointer (handle) to taskbar window
    CWnd* pWnd = FindWindow(_T("HHTaskBar"), _T(""));
    //if te operation succeed, sent to window an hide message
    //if you want to close it, can replace SW_HIDE with SW_CLOSE
    if(pWnd)
    pWnd->ShowWindow(SW_HIDE);
    //............................................

    Good luck,
