Making a Group Special

Author: Mike Palmatier
Platform: Visual Basic 6.0

You can designate a task panel group as "special."  Groups marked as special will be displayed differently than normal groups drawing the users attention to that particular group.  This is an excellent way to show the user the "default" or important items.

To set a group as special all you need to do is set the Special property to True.

Dim Group As TaskPanelGroup
Set Group = wndTaskPanel.Groups.Add(0, "System Tasks")
Group.Special = True
