Hi there!

I want my mainwindow to have no button in the taskbar and only appear with a little trayicon. Furthermore, there should be no maximize or close button, only minimize.

I am working on windows and I tried to work with GetWindowLongPtr and SetWindowLongPtr, GWL_STYLE and GWL_EXSTYLE, WS_MINIMIZEBOX and WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW.

At the end of the constructor of my main class I wrote:

LONG_PTR ws;
ws=GetWindowLongPtr(KeyBuddy2::GetHWND(),GWL_STYLE);
ws = ws | WS_MINIMIZEBOX;	
SetWindowLongPtr(KeyBuddy2::GetHWND(),GWL_STYLE,ws);


I also tried different style attributes, nothing had any effect.

What seems to be the problem here?

Thanks in advance,
Mirko
