Windows 7 Taskbar is great new addition to the Windows user interface that replaces Quick Launch and Traybar from the previous versions of the Windows OS. Usually operating system API is accessed by native code, but we show how you can use managed code wrappers like Windows Vista Bridge or Window 7 Interoperability Pack to access it directly from the .NET language. Learn how you can manipulate Taskbar buttons and application ID, create jump lists, destination and tasks, integrate thumbnail toolbars, add overlay icons and progress icons, create custom thumbnail and peak and build custom switchers (MDI/TDI).
