Disabling dialog being displayed in Windows taskbar

    Hi all,

    I am writing a DLL which includes a function that may open a dialog.
    When this dialog is opened, an additional icon and program description
    is displayed in the Windows taskbar (similar to any other program that
    is opened). What I am looking to do is ensure that when the dialog is
    opened, the title of the dialog doesn't display in the Windows taskbar
    (eg. opening the Font box in Microsoft Word doesn't display another
    item in the taskbar with the name of that dialog). I assume that a
    Windows API function would probably do this.

    Thanks in advance,
    Kyzer

    Please consult Microsoft Windows API n.g. regarding this.
    We discuss only the C++ core language and the libraries defined
    by the standard.
