    Hi, Telerik's support.

    We are using RadWindow control for main window in our WPF application. We need to make our window over taskbar when it is maximizied. Could you tell us please how we can make this with RadWindow?

    Hello Andrey,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You could use RestrictedAreaMargin property and set negative bottom margin. This could make RadWindow to show over the OS taskbar.

    I hope this helps. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team

    Have similar problem, will try the solution. How can I eliminate RadWindow caption? What is the best way to calculate Windows Taskbar height?
    When I set the Taskbar to Auto-hide mode, it works fine. Maybe, it makes sence to do it prorammatically and restore when finished?

    Hi Yury,

    I'm sending you a simple project, demonstrating how to use RadWindow as MainWindow in your application and to show it over the taskbar. May I ask you to share some details what exactly do you want to hide and what you mean with "caption"? There's no need to set Taskbar's AutoHide property programmatically, if you use RestrictedAreaMargin property of RadWindow. As to determine the taskbar height, there are a lot of resources over the net that you can use.

    Hopefully this helps.
