Hi,
I've created a small dialog program that minimises and runs in the tray. When the program runs, it minimises itself to the tray o.k, however when I restore the program, it leave a button on the task bar. Further to this, when I re-minimise my program, the button remains on the taskbar until I click on it.    I can't figure out what why this behavior is occuring. Can someone provide any clues?

Regards, GavinS

Since you access the form thru the system tray icon, set the form's ShowInTaskbar property False.
