Application appearance

Hi,

How do i prevent an application from appears more than once in the ALT+TAB
menu.

As it is today, my application will show an icon for each window visible in
the running application. I only want one icon.

Thank you in advance.

The "ShowInTaskbar" attribute of the form controls this. Set it to
false for all
windows you don't want to show in the task bar.

Hm. Other than making it a toolbar window (FormBorderStyle to
FixedToolWindow or SizeableToolWindow), I'm not really aware of any
simple way to do this.
