I have a MDI form that has no caption -- the problem is when minimized, the taskbar shows just the icon and not the name of the application.  How can I set the taskbar app caption without setting the form caption?

in the Resize event add this :

   If Me.WindowState = vbMinimized Then
      Me.Caption = "Your Caption"
   Else
      Me.Caption = ""
   End If

That did it!  I thought there'd be too much flickering or some other issues with having to reset the style bits over and over again, but apparently, it does well!

Thansk!
