How can I hide/remove my application’s button from the tasbar (without hiding the application’s windows, of course)? (My application has an icon in the Notification Area, and it’s enough, I don’t need a button).

Have you tried "ShowWindow(Application.Handle, SW_HIDE);"?
(If you add this to your project file you might need to add Windows to your uses clause.)

Hi
Simply use the following to hide it
showwindow(Application.Handle,sw_hide)
and to show it again
showwindow(Application.Handle,sw_restore);

inter,
Thank you, it was really simple.

ps. Don’t you know how can I display buttons on the taskbar for windows which were created dinamically by my application? For example, if my application will create N windows, on the taskbar must appear N buttons (the application’s main form must NOT have a button on the taskbar).

Sorry, JimBob, inter,
I didn’t realize that I should reject this answer (anyway, I don’t no if I really should).
