Problem with alert-windows on PC


#1

Hi All,

We are facing a small problem with alert windows. Alert windows (for that matter any window) shows up an entry on the taskbar. We tried using addToDesktop () with all possible combinations, but all to no avail.

We are using juce 1.26.

Does anyone know how to show a window without having an entry on Taskbar ?

TIA

Cheers

You shouldn’t call addToDesktop directly (didn’t you get an assertion failure…?).

Try making your own look and feel class, and overriding the LookAndFeel::getAlertBoxWindowFlags() method - you’ll see that the original version sets the windowAppearsOnTaskbar flag, which you should remove.
