implementng sliding window

Hi,
does anyone know of a way to do sliding window similar to WMP 9's
slider bar which can slide up when the mouse gets to the bottom of the
screen in fullscreen mode during playback. Basically I'm trying to
achieve the same effect in my directshow program done in C# via managed
assembly. I don't know of any control which can do this kind of sliding.
can anyone enlighten me ?

Hi Lonewolf,
there are not any native .Net controls that support the sliding mechanism,
if you want to achieve this you will have to code the animation yourself
using a timer. Otherwise you could purchase a third party tool such as
DotNetBar http://www.devcomponents.com/dotnetbar/ which will give you all the
GUI bells and whistles.

Hope that helps

This is normally accomplished using a window region and custom drawing of
the window appearance.
