Try the following

     HWND hWndTaskBar = ::FindWindow( TEXT("Shell_TrayWnd"), NULL );
     if ( hWndTaskBar )
               ::ShowWindow( hWndTaskBar, SW_HIDE /* or SW_SHOW */ );

but - where do you get the information about the window name to look for
(Shell_TrayWnd for example) ?

Hide Cell Content if no data in previous columns
I've made this work many years ago but now can't remember how. I have a job invoice to where the rate is 40.00/hour. This 40.00 is used in calculation to determine the total amount of pay owed. (20 hours worked * 40.00/hour). The boss requires that the hourly rate be shown for each job on the invoice, so that means it is in a column to where the amount is repeated all the way down. All I want is for the contents of that particular column NOT to show (show as blank), if no job has been entered. In other words, if there is no data entered on that particular row, hide the cont...

Programatic sharing of teams.
I have been searching the sdk and have had trouble finding the method I should use to share an entity (incident, contact, custom entity, etc.) with a team. Does anyone have a quick answer?

How to have auto dialog box showing when selecting cell
I would like to have a dialog box appear each time a cell is selected in a column. I need the dialog box show the next cheque number and allow the user to change that if necessary. The cells cannot have a formula in it as that would cause problems when sorting. Is there a way to do this? Rob You could use data validation to do this. Firstly in an empty area of the worksheet define a cell that is equa to max(column range where the cehque numbers are shown) + 1. (ie max(a:a) + 1 Then set the data validation for the whole cheque input range to list list = the address of the new cell. Th...

Excel 2000 Workbook close button hides instead of close
We received an excel file in email. When we click the Workbook close button (the X) it hides the work book instead of closing it. When we unhide it, something changes and the close button works as normal, but we are asked to save changes even if we don't make any. Looks like there is some code in the background doing something or other. I'd check the workbook code, particulary the Workbook_BeforeClose event. It is more likely some code or functions are changing the worksheet contents than a bug in Excel. -- Regards, Bill Lunney "Steven Robinson" &...

I can press a key sequence (Ctl+N) and get the Navigation pane, but is there a mechanism to hide it via a key stroke, such as Ctl+Shift+N? -- The personal opinion of Gary G.

Create a function in a standard module named something like basUtilities (aircode): Public Function HideNavPain() DoCmd.SelectObject acTable, "MSysObjects", True DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdWindowHide End Function You can change acTable to acForm and use one of your form names.

Mouse hook won't work reliably in desktop/taskbar area
Hi All, I've been experimenting with a hook class that seems to be working well everywhere, EXCEPT reliably over the taskbar and desktop area. It's a system wide mouse hook to catch ctl-right-click for my application, but it just isn't reliable over these areas. In every other window my program is notified 100% of the time, but when I alt-right-click on the desktop or in the taskbar area I only get about 33% reliability with my message coming through. I'm hoping maybe someone knows how to overcome this in a regular system-wide mouse hook procedure, if you need code I'...
