Remarks

This interface also provides the methods of the IOleWindow, IDockingWindow, and IDeskBand interfaces, from which it inherits.

If implemented in all active deskbands, this interface allows the taskbar to be displayed using translucent effects. If an active deskband does not implement IDeskBand2, then translucency is disabled for the entire taskbar.

A deskband can implement IDeskBand2 as a communication conduit between itself and the taskbar as follows:
