ShowInTaskbar Property

See Also    Example    Applies To

Returns or sets a value that determines whether a Form object appears in the Windows taskbar. Read-only at run time.



The object placeholder represents an object expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.


The settings for the ShowInTaskbar property are:

Setting Description
True (Default) The Form object appears in the taskbar.
False The Form object does not appear in the taskbar.


Use the ShowInTaskbar property to keep dialog boxes in your application from appearing in the taskbar.

The default value for the ShowInTaskbar property assumes the default setting for the BorderStyle property of the Form object (Sizable). Changing the BorderStyle property may change the setting of the ShowInTaskbar property.
