    Screen position relative to taskbar position?

    Would it be possible to either retrieve the Windows taskbar position and size, or get an MMF app to 'snap' to it's edge if the window is positioned overlapping it?

    I ask this because I'm making a small 200x150 app and ideally I'd like it to sit down in the bottom right corner. But obviously I don't want it to position itself over the taskbar, nor do I want it to float in empty space away from it. Just working out an absolute position won't work, as obviously people have their taskbar in different positions and different sizes.

    Any ideas?

    You could use the .Net extension to code this, but I don't know how well this would work.

    I don't know how to use the .Net extension or have much idea of how to code in it, so I'll wait for the extension. For the time being, I'll just add controls for the user to move the window themselves :P

    The next Power System Object release will also have taskbar info.

    Not really. I've been busy recently, and haven't been doing much extension work.
