Forms Not Showing Up in Taskbar

Forms Not Showing Up in Taskbar

In VB3 you can set up an executable project to start up in the main subroutine, and it shows up in the Windows 95 taskbar:

 Public Sub Main()	Load frmFoo	frmFoo.Show 1	Unload frmFooEnd Sub

However, if you show a form modally in VB5, no matter if it’s the first form in the program or not, it won’t show up in the taskbar. If you want to see the item in the taskbar, you must show it nonmodally.
