I am using the XPTaskBar control to house a set of Customers. Each XPTaskBarBox represents a customer. What I would like to be able to do is this:
1. Click on the XPTaskBarBox's arrow to min/max the item -- this is built into XPTaskBar.
2. Click on one of several images in the XPTaskBarBox's header, where either (a) the current click event provides information about which header image was clicked (not to be confused with an item click), or (b) raise a different event (for example, HeaderImageClick).
As an example, I may want "delete", "copy", and "paste" images on the header of each of the XPTaskBarBoxs.
Though I could put these as buttons (in a panel) in each of the XPTaskBarBoxs' Controls collection, it requires the user to "open" each XPTaskBarBox in order to click on a button.
Question: Is there a way to do item 2 with the current version of the Tools? If not, what is the likelihood of it showing up in a future version?

This is a very non-standard UI (multiple header images).
Something we will be supporting in near future is the ability to show a context menu by clicking on a dropdown arrow in the taskbox header (this arrow will be to the right of the collapse arrow; something similar to the ones you see in the Office XP Word Taskpane). You could then add multiple menu items to the context menu.
Let me know if this will work for you.

Yes. That would work. Thanks!
