U can set/unset the WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW style with CWnd::ModifyStyleEx() to hide app from task bar without hiding the app itself.

I don't believe this works of your application is a DIALOG BASED app.

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

Try it.  There is nothing special about a dialog vs. a non-dialog window.  They are all windows.

Actually, I've tried it!  It didn't work for me.  In fact, there is a big discussion about this on CodeGuru.Com

Look through the threads of: http://www.codeguru.com/advancedui/Toggle_taskbar_button.shtml

No one that I have talked to can figure out how to do toggle the taskbar button for a Dialog based window.

If you know how, I'de be very appreciative!!

Storm.

stormp,

I don't think your issue is the same as this question's.  This question was how to minimize an application to the taskbar.  Your issue is how to show/hide a button on the taskbar.

You might want to ask this as a new question on Experts Exchange and see if someone can come up with a solution.
