procedure TMainForm.FormShow(Sender: TObject);
var
  
hwndOwner: HWnd;
begin
  
hwndOwner := GetWindow(Handle, GW_OWNER);
  ShowWindow(hwndOwner, SW_HIDE);
  // For Windows 2000, additionally call the ShowWindowAsync function:
  
ShowWindowAsync(hwndOwner, SW_HIDE);
  ShowWindowAsync(Self.Handle, SW_HIDE);
end;

{
  Prevent the form from reappearing on the Taskbar after minimizing it:
