Create Windows 7 Taskbar Toolbar?

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Is there a way to create a dynamic taskbar toolbar? (Right-click taskbar -> Toolbars). I'm not looking for shortcuts, but instead looking for something like a GUI control to edit text in it. I assume it would have to be registered with the system, but I don't know how.

I want to do a resource monitor similar to NetSpeedMonitor (just saw it today) but with other metrics as well. I use Sysinternal's Process Explorer's dynamic tray icons to see graphs of CPU/RAM usage, but as of late it has been a massive memory leaker.

I couldn't find anything like this on the forums except for talk of media player mini-bars, but they were never answered.

Still looking for an answer (if there is one).

ITaskBarList UDF isn't what I want because this isn't a jump/task list, and SysTray UDF isn't what I want because that deals with tray icons.

Hi, TsukasaX. The only thing I have ever seen that comes close to what you're wanting to do is Yashied's great Animate UDF (). You might use it as a starting point for what you would like to do.

That's actually really cool, but I'm looking for toolbar functionality instead of icons. Thanks, though!
