Hello,

I'm creating a FireMonkey app that creates multiple forms at runtime. These forms are not shown on alt+tab or the taskbar. I have tried many solutions that are posted online (using setwindowlong) but they don't work. The TTaskBar component is not available in FM so how do I get those forms showing up (on Windows).

The form itself is "build" at design time and created at runtime (multiple times).

Do your secondary FMX Forms have their Transparency property set to true,
or their BorderStyle property set to bsToolWindow or bsSizeToolWin? Or are
they begin displayed modally? Those conditions would prevent a secondary
FMX Form from appearing on the Taskbar.

I created a new project with two forms, the main and a secundary. The Transparency is false, BorderStyle is Sizeable and i'm not displaying modally. And the secundary form is not displaying in taskbar.
