Publisher description for Windows7 Taskbar Components
One of the most notable feature in Windows 7 is a new Windows taskbar. It offers a new way of controlling your desktop, managing your windows, and launching applications. Our Windows 7 Taskbar Componet Set (WTB) significantly simplifies programming Windows 7 taskbar in Delphi. Curretnly WTB supports the following Windows 7 taskbar extensions: 1. Application ID By Default Windows groups multiple instances of the same application under one taskbar button. If you want to have a separate taskbar buttons for different instances of the application, you can set an explicit App ID for the process. WTB implementation: Class: TfspTaskbarMgr; Property: AppId : String; Set AppID to a unique string. 2. Custom Preview One of the great feature in Windows 7 is a live preview of a top-level window in the taskbar (taskbar thumbnail). Moreover, you can create your own preview and display it instead of default thumbnail. E.g. if you are developing a text editor, you can display your own fragment of text that will be Readable in a small preview box. WTB implementation: Class: TfspTaskbarPreviews; Event OnNeedIconicBitmap 3. Icon Overlay You can create an overlay icon for your task button 4. Progress Bar 5. Tabbed thumbnails Windows 7 allows TDI or MDI application to display preview of each tab (or MDI window) as a separate thumbnail in the taskbar. 6. Thumbnail buttons You can place up to 7 small buttons in the preview window.
