Hello,

I have a main window and i open a second window, but i can't see the second window in the task bar.

The code that i use to open the second window:

            var bookWindow = new RadWindow {Content = this, Height = this.Height, Width = this.Width, CanMove = true};
            var book = (Book)this.DataContext;
            bookWindow.Header = Convert.ToString(book.DisplayName);
            bookWindow.WindowState = WindowState.Normal;
            bookWindow.WindowStartupLocation = WindowStartupLocation.CenterOwner;
            bookWindow.Owner = SampleWindow.mainWindow;
            bookWindow.Show();
            bookWindow.BringToFront();

Thanks,
Ofer

Hi,

Straight to your question.
The expected behavior of the RadWindow is to not show in the taskbar. If you want to see the window in the taskbar you will have to implement that feature further.
If you need any further assistance please feel free to contact us again.


All the best,

Hi,

As I mentioned before the expected behavior of the RadWindow is not to show in the taskbar. However, attached you will find a simple project, which illustrates how can a RadWindow be shown in the taskbar. Please keep in mind that this isn't a supported feature, so you may experience restrictions in the functionality.
If you have any other concerns please feel free to contact us again, we will be very happy to help.

or add in Loaded event handler something like this
if (window != null)
 {
            window.ShowInTaskbar = true;
            window.Title = this.Header.ToString();
            string path = System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName(System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetName().CodeBase) + "\\icon_1.png";          
             window.Icon = BitmapFrame.Create(new Uri(path, UriKind.Absolute));
}

This solution does not work because RadWindow.Opened has been deprecated. How can I do this now? I want to use the RadWindow for all of my windows. Thanks!

From Erica:

I solved the issue by running this code after InitializeComponent();

        public static void ShowInTaskbar(RadWindow control, string title)
        {
            control.Show();
            var window = control.ParentOfType<Window>();
            window.ShowInTaskbar = true;
            window.Title = title;
            var uri = new Uri("pack://application:,,,/CLOS_UI;component/Icon.ico");
            window.Icon = BitmapFrame.Create(uri);
        }

Bringing this back from the dead, but I'm trying to accomplish the same task ... Since my MainWindow  Inherits RadWindow (required for "themes") the ShowInTaskBar property is not available even when it is my "MainWindow" not a second window.  My users are wondering where the icon for my app is in the taskbar.

Can someone show me how to get ShowInTaskBar working with I'm using a RadWindow as my MainWindow?

BTW, this is a VERY important option and no mention of not being able to use ShowInTaskBar when using a RadWindow?  It would be VERY helpful if a list of "restictions" were provided around using RadWindow.  These are "core" restictions that affect design decisions and which route to go or not in terms of application Theme usage.

Cheers, Rob.

I had the same issue. For anyone else reading this post, refer to the RadWindowInteropHelper
