Windows 7: Developing for the Windows 7 Taskbar Application ID

19 Jun 2009   #1

Developing for the Windows 7 Taskbar Application ID

[June 19th - I added a code sample and new screenshots.]

In response to some of the comments I included a link to the download and new screenshots to show the effect of changing Application ID in run time. And Just to make sure we are all on the same page here are two images to illustrate the power of AppID. You can clearly see that the same application (with the same original application ID) can have two different Taskbar buttons. You can also download the code for this application.


Just a note as response to one of the comments. Yes you can place a different Taskbar button between to windows with different AppID!

download the code for this application

You can find the managed code Taskbar object in the Windows API Code pack project.
