Alright here's another GBM Forum inspired App: *Updated*(see below).
Warner Crocker was nice enough to make a demo about the app in it's original code (using the F2 Key). You can check the video out here.
The App was also mentioned in one of the weekly Gottabemobile.com podcasts: here.
Rollup will "roll up" a windows application so that all you will see is the title bar. There's no animation yet, though i plan on adding if enough people are interested (so let me know).
There's no installation needed. All you do is run the application, then select which application you want to roll up and press F2 to roll it up. If you press F2 again it will roll the application back to it's original position.
The original position data is stored in an INI that will be created the first time you run Rollup.exe. The INI file will be created wherever the Rollup.exe file is located.
To quit out of the application, you can either right click on its icon in the system tray and click EXIT or you can press the "END" key (at which point the icon should go away).
Please let me know if you have any Questions/Requests.
