hey guys, i've made an app in c#.. It works fine.. But i want to build a feature in it, so that when user minimizes it, it will launch a small window with user's permission, which will show wats happening in the basic app... Quite much like windows 7's peek... Help me out broz..

Edit: Wat i meant by peek is, wen we hover our cursor over some icon in Windows 7, it shows its live view.. I need not make this peek thingy in c#, it can be in any language... But getting this would be a great help

I think it is called a 'preview pane'.

The all-mighty google provided this for my 4 seconds of sacrifice, <!-- m -->http://stackoverflow... ... indow-area<!-- m -->

It deals with WMP, but should get you started in the right direction.

what i meant is, instead of getting that preview on taskbar, i want to generate it on a seperate window

okay, i got an idea... I use web browser control, so i googled how to make a zoomed out web browser control is c sharp... N BINGO... nearly exactly wat i wanted to make... Only problem is, i cant seem to download the sample zip file, cant seem to get the given code working..

okay, so i gave that view stuff a thought, and turns out, that zoom out explorer stuff wont work in this special case, cuz server allows only one instance entry per ID. So, i need that thumbnail stuff, if possible, to be generated on another window... Help?
