Vista Aero small preview window in c#? RRS feed

  • Question

  • In vista with aero effects enabled you can get a small preview window of the application, when you hover the mouse over it in the taskbar.

    Is it possible to get this preview window in your c# projects?
    e.g.: is there an api for the aero effects to use in your c# applications?

    What I am basically trying to do is to tile the small preview windows within a form, but of course it would only work if it's possible to get those preview windows in c# in the first place.

  • There isn't an API like that.  But you can use Control.DrawToBitmap to get capture of a form/control then simply scale it down and display it.
