God, here it is the question again

I have my Main form and a 2nd form which is not auto-created, i create more than 1 of that form at run-time, but i would like to show the taskbar button for every new form, just like office 2000 does it... how can I do it?

ShowWindow doesn't work

thanks

Add ShellAPI to your units and try this function:

Shell_NotifyIcon(NIM_ADD, pnid);

  Thanks for answering... but that code is to add an Icon to the Tray area, and i need a button... office 2000 creates a new taskbar button everytime you open a document, i would like that...

  Thanks!

hmmm...your right. I misunderstood your question. However...I run office 2000 and when I create a new document it stays within the region of the application if I minimize. I don't see any buttons.

If I start a second "instance" of an application (say Excell) then I see two buttons on the taskbar for Excel. Do you want multiple "instances" of your application running?

Maybe clarification of your question will get you quicker results from the rest of the experts.

Hi,

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Application.CreateForm(TForm2, Form2);
  SetWindowLong(Form2.Handle, GWL_EXSTYLE, WS_EX_APPWINDOW);
  Form2.Show;
end;

Regards, Geo
