Hi all,
I was thinking my desktop application a bit easy but when i try to list the open window i got a trouble. I can list my own apps windows but cant list other windows.
For Example::
If i run Corel Draw or Ms Paint how can i detect the mspaint or Coreldraw task in my desktop application's taskbar as you have seen in simple xp explorer's taskbar that whenever you run any application a button appears in task bar. and have effects about active and inactive windows.

I have icons on my application ll i use checks on these icons?? that when coreldraw icon clicks a button appears in taskbar???? and for termination i use check on taskbar that if the process for coreldraw exist the button disappear??? Second how can i detect the active window and deactive window??? Third when any window minimized it should minimized to my dektop app taskbar.... Fourth how can i get the icon of app. i m using custom icons defined by me desktop app...

Right now i have created my own startmenu, taskbar, explorer windows, taskmanager, security centre, web controller, auto clicker, reminder, clocks, graphics, side bars, auto computer controller, run command, search engine for explorer and web etc.....

Now if you can give me any new suggestion to make my desktop app better plz give. I m very thank full to you all.

If you got any example it will be appreciated most.

Thanx
