Windows 7 Taskbar Extensions
« on: May 06, 2009, 11:17:25 PM »
I know i know - its not even out yet. If you haven't tried it yet RDL - do so.  This is more of a "when possible in the future" request but it would be nice if alt.binz supported the new windows 7 taskbar features like using the progressbar (possibly to show overal progress - current progress - current speed). amongst other features (read more here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd378460(VS.85).aspx)

Then he should start with moving the speedbar from the tray icon to the taskbar (window) icon because we all will pin the AltBinz shortcut on the taskbar. ;)
So we dont need the tray icon anymore.
(I like these new Win7 taskbar features)

Personally I prefer my AB on the system tray, but the extensions to the W7 taskbar would be welcome!

Happily, someone already made a start on some controls for Jump Lists, Overlay Icon, Progress Indicator and Taskbar Thumbnails - Delphi 7 through 2009, will fail silently on non-Windows 7 systems:

ImgBurn already has a progress bar incorporated into windows 7 taskbar, but no jump lists for now.I wonder what code did they use.

ImgBurn = C++ builder

Alt.Binz = Delphi 7
