hi ,

i need to handle tasks in my app and i need to make something like the
outlook 07 TODO BAR.... or atleast thats the best thing i've seen so
far. basically i need something that doesnt take space on the client
area but is easily accesible ,so if anyone has better controls tell
me!

ok , lets assume i have to make the outlok TODO bar:

i know : its a Form or atleast inherited from Form and hides() when it
loses focus

i need to know:

  1. how is the vertical bar made its colour changes when clicked and most importantly displays dynamic text!
  2. The form is not only coloured , it had this nice border around it ,
    is this just a picture
  3. I dont need the calender , i plan on just using a plain list view , I dont need the fancy flags  , but i need the listview tree view combination ....look at this: http://gidsfiles.googlepages.com/outlook_listview_tree.jpg

I'm using .NET 2 and C#2.0

thanks
