Hello,

I've made a toolbar program that sits docked at the top of the screen. The only problem is, if the end user maximises a window, my toolbar becomes hidden behind it. How do I make my toolbar behave like the start bar, so that it maximized windows do not cover it up

robinjam,

According to your problem, I rcommend you to float the Toolbar that can be always in front of the Forms. Please take a look at the solution on How to floating the Toolbar:

There is an article on Windows Forms Layout. In the article, Chris Sells discusses how controls are scaled and arranged on a form, and how the scaling and arrangement features are used to meet the needs of different users with respect to system font size and the size of the data being entered.
