expertD,

Entering "+taskbar +auto +hide" into the forum"Search" facility (it is at the top-right of the page) found this within the first few suggestions. ;)

Thanks Melba23 for the link. But since I am a beginner for autoit. I can't understand some code (given below) in it. It will be great if you explain below code, or point me oward some tutorial where I can learn about it.

$hTaskBar = _WinAPI_FindWindow("Shell_TrayWnd", "")

_WinAPI_ShowWindow($hTaskBar, @SW_SHOW)
$ABM_GETSTATE = 0x00000004

DllCall('shell32.dll', 'uint', 'SHAppBarMessage', 'dword', $ABM_GETSTATE, 'ptr*', 0)

SetError(1, 0, 0)

expertD,

I can explain no better than the help file for the _WinAPI_FindWindow, _WinAPI_ShowWindow & SetError functions., while $ABM_GETSTATE is just a constant value used by the Shell32 DLL to designate one of its functions.

DllCall is one of the more complicated AutoIt functions, but it essentially asks a DLL to do something for you - as explained in the Help file the parameters tell Windows which DLL to use, how we want the return to be presented, what function the DLL should use, and the parameters to pass to the DLL. Unlike AutoIt, DLLS are very fussy about datatypes and so these parameters are very precisely formatted - which is why you have to define the type as well as the value (for example explaining that $ABM_GETSTATE should be passed as an unsigned 32 bit integer). :)
