I've already replaced every Frame and Dialog's icon to my own picture.When just one frame, it display my picture and frame title in the task bar of WinXP. When open more frames, they are grouped and displayed one item "[NO]javaw" in the task bar. Why does this happen? Is there a method to resolve it?

Thanks in advance.


To be or not to be. It's a question.

Because as far as Windows is concerned they're all part of the same program, just as if they were all Internet Explorer windows. My terminology may be bad, but that's the gist of it.

I don't know. I hate that 'feature' in XP so I've never used it and I'm not too familiar with exactly how it works.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
