Curretnly WTB supports the following Windows 7 taskbar extensions:

1. Application ID

By default Windows groups multiple instances of the same application under one taskbar button.

If you want to have a separate taskbar buttons for different instances of the application, you can set an explicit App ID for the process.

WTB implementation:
Class: TfspTaskbarMgr;

Property: AppId : String;
Set AppID to a unique string.


2. Custom Preview

One of the great feature in Windows 7 is a live preview of a top-level window in the taskbar (taskbar thumbnail). Moreover, you can create your own preview and display it instead of default thumbnail. E.g. if you are developing a text editor, you can display your own fragment of text that will be readable in a small preview box.

WTB implementation:

Class: TfspTaskbarPreviews;
Event OnNeedIconicBitmap


3. Icon Overlay

You can create an overlay icon for your task button

WTB implementation:
Class: TfspTaskbarMgr;
Property: OverlayIcon : TIcon;

4. Progress Bar

WTB implementation:
Class: TfspTaskbarMgr;
Properties: ProgressState, ProgressValue, ProgressValueMax

5. Tabbed thumbnails

Windows 7 allows TDI or MDI application to display preview of each tab (or MDI window) as a separate thumbnail in the taskbar.

WTB implementation:
Class: TfspTaskbarTabMgr.

6. Thumbnail buttons
