Question Set workingarea of screen/desktop


Long time no see!

I am working on an VB.net app where the menubar will be docked on the top of the screen. I am however not able to set the working area of the screen so everything will adjust to the topbar (which is on-top = true). I have searched as much as I can without any real help anywhere. ExpertsExchange had an answer, but as I am not a member I am not able to view it. MSDN claims it is a read only value. I am certain I have seen other apps doing this, don't remember which ones though...

Bottom line is, I am looking for some help in getting the workingarea of the desktop reduced so my custom menubar does not overlap any maximized applications (or icons on the desktop).

So, fellow coders... Any clue on how we could set the working area of the screen?

Thanks anyways!
