    So you think that is possible ? did you try to hide other(not your own) application?


    Code:
    const TUid KPhoneAppUid = { 0x2010305B };
    TApaTaskList tlist(iEikonEnv->WsSession());
    TApaTask app(tlist.FindApp(KPhoneAppUid));
    Now, I had the app.WgId() but I don't know why it's not working
    can you help me with the please ?

    maybe:
    Code:
    	TInt wgId = app.WgId();
    	RWsSession session = iEikonEnv->WsSession();
    	CApaWindowGroupName* wgName = CApaWindowGroupName::NewLC(session, wgId);
    	wgName->SetHidden(ETrue);
    	wgName->SetWindowGroupName(iEikonEnv->RootWin());
    	CleanupStack::PopAndDestroy(); // wgName
    but this is also not working... ;(

    Thanks,
    Dvir.

    Do check that you actually got the capability for your executable (i.e. nothing went wrong when compiling it), you could do this for example with Y-Tasks:rocesses plugin.

    You may also want to check it in the emulator, where capabilities do not matter that much. And consider trying other variants of SetWindowGroupName/L, iEikonEnv obviously refers to your own application, assigning its name to an other application might not make much sense (to be honest I do not fully understand the exact role of this line even in the original code).

    you can use:
    HideApplicationFromFSW(ETrue);

    That method serves an other purpose than what the question was (! 8 months ago) about.
