Windows® 7 .Net Famework
Windows 7 offers new tools that can be used by programmers worldwide for developing applications that offer enhanced experience and productivity for its clients.
Some of these fresh features include: the ability to include custom tasks to the Taskbar JumpLists, supporting the new Libraries and making the application Library aware, enable enhanced Graphic User Interface with Multi-Touch facility, and expanding the application to “react” to its surroundings by adopting the Sensor and Location platform.
Windows 7 Beta SDK is a big source of documentation and samples for using these new sets of APIs. Most of the examples are designed in basic code as similar to Windows 7 APIs and are all written using C, C++, and COM APIs. All of this makes the job of code developers a bit tough. Therefore, Microsoft built the Windows Vista Bridge project that makes it easier for managed code programmers to use Windows OS-specific APIs such as those mentioned above. The present edition of the Window Vista Bridge, version 1.4 has many useful “Window Vista” features like Restart and Recovery, Search, Power Awareness and other Shell integrations. However, this current version doesn’t have any Windows 7 features. It will support key Windows 7 APIs in the near future. However, until then, Microsoft have developed an alternative set of solutions for supporting managed code developers who want to aim Windows 7 Beta today and not wait for the time the Windows API Code Pack for the .NET Library (the new name of Window Vista Bridge) will be available.
NOTE: It is important to understand that these solutions are not the “official libraries”. They come with no support or any sort of warranty. In short, use them at your own risk!
The Taskbar Sample .NET Interop Library enables developers to:
• Design and manipulate JumpLists including tasks and items
• Display Dynamic Overlay Icons, Thumbnail Toolbars
• Use the Taskbar progress bar
• Control Custom Thumbnail Preview, and custom Preview also known as- AeroPeek
The Windows 7 .NET Interop Library is available for download and consists of 4 demos showcasing all the Taskbar features.
