Yes if you want to display you must have it set to true and you can't set it at run time....it's a design time thing

My form is showintaskbar property is set to true.

here's the code i have for minimizing.

Private Sub Form_Resize()
    If Me.WindowState = vbMinimized Then
        Me.Hide
    End If
end sub

oops... I see my mistake now...

me.hide actually hides the form and removes it from the taskbar.  

thanks though
