is there a way of getting the OS's taskbar's length?

i need to make a popup appear as from behind the taskbar (something like
msn messenger) , but in order to do that i need to know the OS's taskbar's
width.

thanks

You could probably figure this out by comparing Monitor.getClientArea() and
Monitor.getBounds().

Is this supposed to work on Gtk (or am I misunderstanding the original
question)? I'm trying to determine the amount of available screen space
which depends on the height of the panel along the bottom (which may or may
not autohide). But when I tried using Monitor, the result was the same for
both bounds and clientArea regardless of whether the panel was visible or
not.
Note that maximize does the right thing so I'm hoping there is a simple way
to get the available space.

It is intended to work. Enter a bug report. It may not be possible to get
this information (although Window managers somehow do it).
