Auto-Hide and Always On Top Plug In or Code?

I have developed a small app I would like to have behave like the
Windows XP Taskbar, in that users should be able to select either Auto-
Hide or Always On Top, and get the same behavior you get with the
Taskbar.

Is this something I should be able to accomplish in code? When I
first started this project months ago, I didn't think so, so I
convinced my firm to purchase LogicNP's Shell Mega Pack

Sorry, too fast the fingers.

Anyway, there are a number of issues with the ShellAppBar tool that
make it undependable, and LogicNP seems to no longer be supporting the
product (or maybe they've just given up on me and didn't tell me).

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Patrick

LogicNP has contacted me, and the issue was that while I thought
"Always on Top" and "Auto Hide" are mutually exclusive, they need to
be paired to get the full TaskBar Auto-Hide effect.
