    I'm not sure I understand.

    If you want the aplication to show on the task bar you need a window. Register a windows class and create on for the application 1x1 in dimensions, hide this behind the dialog or hide from view (HideWindow(HWND,SW_SHOW or SW_HIDE)).

    In the resource editor (in Dev Studio) select the whole dialog and under styles select 'minimise box'
    or on creation you should specify WS_MINIMIZEBOX
    as one of the flags.

    Is this what you are asking or do you want to know about the system tray (the small area of the task bar near the clock)?

    SendMessage

    SendMessage(hWnd,WM_SYSCOMMAND,SC_MINIMIZE,0);it can minize dialogwindow to taskbar,but it's a long distance from timer.
    ..........a struct NOTIFYICONDATA is useful.
