MSDN April 2003 error?

I create a form and set its FormBorderStyle to FixedToolWindow. MSDN says
that it's a :
"A tool window border that is not resizable. A tool window does not appear
in the taskbar or in the window that appears when the user presses ALT+TAB."

While it doesn't appear when pressing ALT+TAB, it is still present in the
task manager. ( I assume that taskbar and task manager are the same thing).
I still have to change form's ShowInTaskBar to false if i want it to show
in the task manager.

Is it an error in the MSDN?

show
in the task manager, that is.

Taskbar and TaskManager are 2 different things. Taskbar is the bar where
your start button is and taskmanager is what shows your running processes.
Since it doesn't appear in the taskbar when you set it to FixedToolWindow
there's nothing wrong with MSDN. :)

Another solution to make a true Toolbar window is to copy the window
settings (GWL_STYLE) by using Spy++ utility and then set them through
SetWindowLong API. 100% guaranteed.
