I am working with a multiple forms in vb.net. When i open forms it shows that many icons in the taskbar how can i stop and showing it as a single icon. I ve tried using child parent concept but when i click button to activate it dont get open.


See if this helps.

Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        Me.ShowInTaskbar = False
        Form2.ShowInTaskbar = True
        Form3.ShowInTaskbar = False
    End Sub

The "ShowInTaskbar" can also be located in each Form's Properties.
