Different Form Caption vs Taskbar Text

Hello,
Is there any easy and safe way to set different texts for a Form's Caption Text vs its Taskbar Text?
I want to set a shorter text for the Taskbar, possible?
vb.net + .net fw 4 full profile
Thanks :)

Hi @osvbnet ,
It's possible.
You can choose to hide the original title bar, and then draw a custom title bar yourself.
In this way, the text of the hidden title bar will be displayed in the taskbar, and the text of the title bar drawn by yourself will be displayed in the form.
Best Regards.
