suppress backup message output

When a backup is done through code, is there a way to suppress the message, so that it does not get displayed:
"Processed 152 pages for database 'FULLBackup', file 'FULLBackup' on file 1.
Processed 2 pages for database 'FULLBackup', file 'FULLBackup_log' on file 1.
BACKUP DATABASE successfully processed 154 pages in 0.218 seconds (5.754 MB/sec)."

good point. it Suppresses it in event viewer, not in SSMS though :(

I think this cannot be done.
Only thing you can supress is the "x rows affected" when you execute the SQL query. This can be done by using SET NOCOUNT ON
