Dear Ranchers,
Just want to know if it is possible to have JFrame or any component to cover the entire computer page including the taskbar. What I am looking for is an application that looks like a screensaver but not necessarily screensaver, that will require password input to get deactivated.
Or rather any sort of component that will freeze all action on the Windows page until either password is typed to get rid of the freeze action.
Please any suggestion will be welcome.

Thank you all.

Hey,

What you probably want is more of a JWindow, rather than a JFrame. However, how would you avoid the user pressing Ctrl-Alt-Delete?

You want to look at the fullscreen exclusive mode API.

I think alt-tab would get around fullscreen exclusive mode on Win. You might want to look at the actual Java screensaver stuff. Not really familiar with it, I think it's part of the JNDI stuff (one of those acronyms, whichever is the desktop components).
