Well, it's 2009 and your start menu for francesca works GREAT!!! It's saved my life and it's made windows so much fun... I really appreciate your work and I hope You can come up with new ideas for the dock, such as a vista/win7 calendar docklet. A big hug from Chile S.A.

this is very cool but how come i cant change the title on the docklet to just say "start" and not "startmenu docklet for francesca" i opened the item properties dialog and it wont let me change it, anybody had that problem or is it just me?

Hey A~, Can this be made to have the Start Menu hover over the dock when the docklet is press? That would be the ulitmate dream for alot of ppl over @ the aqua-soft boards
Thanks for all the great work that you have done, very greatful!

I've used the code someone submitted
and extended it a little, and becuz I'm a VB freak did it in VB as opposed to C++

Dim cursorPosition As POINTAPI
Call GetCursorPos(cursorPosition)
Call SetWindowPos(FindWindowEx(FindWindow("Shell_TrayWnd", ""), 0, "Button", ""), HWND_TOP, cursorPosition.X, cursorPosition.Y, 101, Y, 0)
Call SetForegroundWindow(FindWindow("Shell_TrayWnd", ""))
Call Sendmessage(FindWindow("Shell_TrayWnd", ""), WM_USER + &H104, 0, 0)

and then made an executable and plonked it on my objectDock...
and low and behold i have a start menu which doesn't do the double thingy (Win2k tested only)
I'd make it into a docklet... only i haven't got the time to work out how it works at the mo. and this does what i want...
but I thought.
Anyho... I dunno if your interested in the code or the executable...

the VB source would be nice
Comment #98 Sunday, December 19, 2004 12:37 PM
OK this is dead simple so i'll just place it all here.
This is all I did.
Open up VB. Create a new project, with no forms and just a module.

Then used this code
Option Explicit
'Declare API Calls, because we don't have them as standard in VB
Private Declare Function SetForegroundWindow Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function SetWindowPos Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal hWndInsertAfter As Long, ByVal X As Long, ByVal Y As Long, ByVal cx As Long, ByVal cy As Long, ByVal wFlags As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function Sendmessage Lib "user32" Alias "SendMessageA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal wMsg As Long, ByVal wParam As Long, lParam As Any) As Long
Private Declare Function FindWindow Lib "user32" Alias "FindWindowA" (ByVal lpClassName As String, ByVal lpWindowName As String) As Long
Private Declare F

OK, Well that didn't work. WinCustomize is really pretty and all, but absoloutley full of bugs!
Guess there is a character limit or something!
OK If you add Chrisinbmth8Y! to either YIM or MSN, then I'll send you the file.

Converting the 8 to an interesting symbol, and Y! to a well known to search engine.

I've just tested my vb app on XP, and it doesn't work at all, it just pops the
start menu up from it's current location on the task bar, so this ones a 2000 fix only
