Snap / Dock on Windows


#1

Hello,

I am looking forward to find a solution to make an app snap to the top of the desktop but without overlapping on the other windows.
I have other win32 applications that split the desktop workarea so all other windows keep using the beyond area.
Is there any way to hack this or may be a future implementation of Electron ?

Were you ever able to figure this out? I have a similar need for an application I’ll be working on shortly.

No, I didn´t found a solution to this, still searching.

Can I ask: would Windows application toolbars (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/cc144177(v=vs.85).aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396) be the effect you are looking for? If so, I am actively looking into that now and have another question posted in this forum about it.

And if so, now I don’t feel so lonely about it!

It looks like the application toolbar is indeed what I will be after. Would be nice if there was a way to implement that with Electron, but I’d guess that there isn’t a way to do that yet.

Working on it…

Did you have a workarround for this ?

I spent quite a long time on this but could never get it stable. It must be more of an Electron thing than a Chromium thing, because I ultimately went straight to CEF and got something working in a few hours.
