I have a dialog application which insert also an icon in the taskbar Icons.

What I want to do, is when I minimize my application, that the button in the taskbar is removed.
When I want to show the application, that this button is already inserted in the taskbar.

How can I do this ?

First). Call ShowWindow( hwnd, SW_HIDE ) whenever your window callback proc. recieves WM_SIZE with wParam == SIZE_MINIMIZE.

Second). Call ShowWindow( hwnd, SW_RESTORE ) whenever your window callback proc. recieves taskbar notification with left mouse click at our icon.
//Here suppose you show the window by click the tray icon.But it's dependent.

Above do exactly what you want.
