Icon in Taskbar

Hi there,

How do you get your application icon to appear in the windows taskbar whilst your standalone program is running?

Thanks, Aaron

That should happen automatically as it does for all apps, provided you have at least one toplevel stack open. How many windows does your app have, and what are their modes?

This is just a guess, but I wonder if they mean in the system tray of the taskbar. As you say, a button should show automatically in the taskbar itself on launch of the program.

I hope they pop back into clarify.

No sorry, false alarm. It's because I had no icon set in my Save as Standalone Application Settings.

Thanks :D
