I've created a form that should function as a screensaver. I changed the extention to scr, and that worked, but I've got another problem. When the screensaver starts the windows taskbar must be hidden too, but ths doesn't happen. I have set the form's align propertie to alClient and so it will be maximized, but I also want the taskbar to be hidden.
I also noticed that when I start my screensaver on a win98 machine it gets started every 10 seconds or so.... Result: After a few minutes the whole taskbar is full of screensaver forms and it even starts to run slower(because of the number of copies in memory) On my win 2000 machine I do not have this problem. Could it be because Delphi is installed on the win98 machine ???
Last question:Most screensavers have an extra screen where you can set several options, You can click the options button in the screen preverence/screensaveer tab. If I do so my own screensaver will start. Is there a certain way I can use this button to show my own options form ?
