Tried In both Windows 7 and Windows 10.  Set "Auto Hide Taskbar" in windows, so that the bottom task bar slides up when the mouse is ran over the bottom of the screen.  Using regular apps in full screen, this still is functional.  Using a Telerik ShapedForm (Winforms) in full screen prevents the task bar from sliding up.  Has anyone experienced this, or have a solution?

Hello Jesse,

Thank you for writing.

It is a known problem with FormWindowState.Maximized. You can track its progress, subscribe for status changes and add your vote/comment to it on the following link - feedback item

Unfortunately, I can not suggest a suitable solution. Instead of maximizing the form, you can increase its size to simulate the maximized state without overlapping the taskbar at the bottom.

I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions I would be glad to help.
 
Regards,
Dess
