How to disable taskbar in Windows CE 5.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a .NET CF v2.0 Windows applicatiion that runs in Windows CE 5.0 OS in a fullscreen mode (I am not using AygShell API as it is not part of the Core volume license).

    I would like to disable the taskbar. The registry settings such as,

    ;;----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ;; Auto Hide Task Bar
    ;;----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shell]
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Shell\AutoHide] 
     "Default "=dword:1 
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Shell\OnTop] 
     "Default "=dword:0 

    did not help much.

    There is one way, which is to replace the explorer.exe with my application's full path in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\init\Launch50, but I have kept that a the last option.

    I would appreciate your great help.

    Thanks.

  • I'd suggest you try setting the following properties on your main form:
    Form.WindowState to Maximized, ControlBox and MinimizeBox to false, FormBorderStyle to None and TopMost to true
    This sould do the trick.
