hi gurus,

i would like to create a small modeless window for my app, but i dont want an icon/entry to appear in the system bar for it. is there any way to do this based on CWnd, or will i have to go back to the windows API?

cheers,
gavin

First of all you can use WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW style, but your window will not have "normal" caption bar, only a little one. Another way is to use WS_POPUP (without WS_CHILD) and set a parent of that window to another not visible window.
