How to hide form completely while using global hot key?(RegisterHo tKey)

Hi, all

I'm developing an application that needs to pop up when the user
presses a global hot key. I followed instruction using Win32 API
RegisterHotKey. It works fine at first, but what's the strange is after
I used Form.ShowInTask Bar = false to hide form, the hot key didn't work
any more. I remove the line, then it works again.
I try the code in CodeProject SystemHotkey too, but failed. I add
Form.ShowInTask Bar = false in its example form, got the same result.
I want to know if there is a way to avoid use Form.ShowInTask Bar =
false to hide form completely, or another way of building a pop up app
with hot key.
