GeneralTaskbar Grouping Icon and Text in Windows XP Pin

Hi there,

I have this little problem which is of pure cosmetic nature, so it doesn't really affect the application, but it would be something I'd really like to have. I searched around and couldn't find a solution for this anywhere, so I hope somebody in here knows the trick. The problem does also apply to any other .NET application, but since my application is written in C#, I post it here first:

My appplication has a nice application icon and opens several windows, which also all have this application icon. Everything looks fine in the windows taskbar, until the moment when the taskbar grouping function of WinXP kicks in. Then the group icon for my application suddenly is the default empty application icon, and the group button itself doesn't have any text, but just states the number of windows grouped, for example "3".

When I click on the group button, every item in the list has the nice application icon, but it seems that the group icon comes from somewhere else, as well as the group button text. Since other applications still have their icon even when the windows are grouped, this property must be able to set somewhere.

I read in a newsgroup that the group icon comes from SystemIcons.Application, which in fact is the empty default windows icon that I see, but this property is read-only, so there is no way for me to confirm that this icon is really used, nor can I change it to my application icon.

In case it is still not clear what I mean to the following to reproduce the problem: Open a new .NET project (C# or VB doesn't matter) and add a second dialog, then add a function in your main dialog that opens up the second dialog when clicking a button or something like that. Edit the App.ico resource so that the icon looks different and make both your windows use this file as the application icon. Now execute the application and press that button that executes your function to open more windows until the taskbar is full and WinXP groups the icons. Then you should be able to see the effect.

In case it is still not clear, I can also post a screenshot, but for the moment I'll just hope that someone is able to understand what I mean. Wink | ;)

Any ideas?
Thanks,
Sascha
