RE: hiding gnome-panel using bonobo

I am developing an Xwindow application in which I want to lock down the
user i.e.the user should not be able to switch to another application
once he/she has started our application until he/she quits our
application.The plan right now is to block the shortcut keys and hide
the panel wich are the means to switch to another aplication.Blocking
the shortcut keys is almost over and need to hide the panel.
Any way for this?

Thanks and Regards,
Manikandan T

service, probably not since its overdue for an overhaul someday.

Can you tell us why you want to hide the panel? Maybe there's another
