    Exclamation How to hide/disable Java application showing on taskbar?

    Hi,

    How would I implement this on Java?
    I have implemented the Java application to the System Tray.
    I am wanting to disable the Java(JFrame) from showing on the Windows Taskbar and show it on the System Tray.

    What API I am going to use?

    Thanks,
    Cyril H.

    What happens when you use setVisible(false)?

    The JFrame will not display.
    Maybe I'm going to use JDialog.

    But I wonder what they are saying about a error that occurs using JDialog instead of JFrame,

    Using JDialog will definitely help OP to solve problem, but can JDialog perform all the role of JFrame? I wonder that, sooner or later a point would come where use of JDialog will not give JFrame functionality.
