Titlebar Button
« on: January 13, 2013, 04:27:22 AM »
is there a way to add custom buttons to show and keep on title bar, at given coordinates?

i.e. near minimize button and/or near icon or title...

You could use a borderless form then simply do it all yourself. That's a pretty straight forward way. (Or us a blank Canvas for mobile.)

If you're looking for something else, I think you'll need to specify what language/platform you're talking about.

Well actually I tried in c#.net, there are no default options,
There is 'ActiveButtons' library that implemented it
information here
and Code and Sample here
but it only add button near minimize button and don't allow to add buttons at different location, with this:
> I can't add button near minimize button and near title icon...
> I can't add button any other location than near minimize button...

I have tried and googled for other possible sample or tutorial for same but there are none as clean as this...

there are many software those implement such thing eg IDM, 4t-min and other like those implement extra functions like minimise to tray, roll window in titlebar, locking window on top etc.
even I have seen in this forum or somewhere, a code to add time in title bar in ahk,

is there other way i can do, or in different language and use it's library to implement it's controls may be...


by the thanks for your reply Renegade,

Skrommel's Barnacle seems close, maybe?
