i want to hide A systray or taskbar icon i don't OWN !

I want to hide a window (say, ICQ NetDetect agent in the system tray, or the telnet window on the taskbar). Actually i won't stop the application, or hide its window (i would if i'd know!). So i can do this for my app, using the handle, but how to track the other windows, handles? Or another method?

Hi Mahara,

You can get the handles with FindWindow

eg.

Result := FindWindow('ProgMan', nil);

      yes.

use "winsight32" (comes with some versions of delphi) to get the windows class name.or use a program called "sinfo"
do a search on www.av.com for a download address.once you have the class name you can do as zif posted.
