Holy cow, I wrote a book!
In another installment of
I bet somebody got a really nice bonus for that feature,
I offer you this customer:
My customer has created a Windows Vista sidebar gadget and
wants to know if there's a way to force this gadget to appear
at the top of the sidebar and prevent the user from moving or removing it.
I applaud this company for having written
the most awesome sidebar gadget in the history of the universe.
It's so compelling that it should override the user's preferences
and force itself into the upper right
corner of their screen in all perpetuity.
Unfortunately, Windows was not prepared for a program as awesome
as this, and there
is no supported way to force a gadget into a particular
position and prevent the user from moving or removing it.
