Remove Minimized Form Completey When ShowInTaskbar = false

Experts, I am creating a windows form and wish to ShowInTaskbar = false. However, when I minimize the form I still have the 'minimized' form in the lower left of my screen above my taskbar. Is there a way to get ride of it completely when it is minimized? I am controling the "re-apparing" of the form through a notifyIcon/contextMenu.

In addition to setting the ShowInTaskbar property to false, try setting the Forms FormBorderStyle to SizableToolWindow (allowing it to be resizable) or to FixedToolWindow (making it not resizable).
I had the same problem a few months ago, and I remember that I managed the SizeChanged event , and check if the state is minimized, then jus call the Hide() method and that's it.

Hope helps
