Summary
  • Program developers who want to hide windows and icons that do not belong to Visual Basic can use the ShowWindow and FindWindow functions from Windows API to accomplish the task. First, a user must add a Declare statement to the general declarations section of a form or to a code module. Then, the user can retrieve the window to be hidden with FindWindow by specifying the window's name. The value that FindWindow retrieves can then be modified using ShowWindow. ShowWindow will require both the window handle and the visibility flag, which specifies how the window will be shown. Once the user can modify the window, many options are available for displaying it, including hiding the window's icon. This same method can be used to hide Shelled programs, because the Shell function does not allow users to hide Shelled programs. Users should be sure that the Shelled program will end itself or the application will stay hidden and loaded until the Windows session is ended.
