We're trying to convert from an ADXCustomTaskPaneInstance to an ADXExcelTaskPane and I cannot see any way to have the task pane hidden at start-up and only be displayed upon some action.

I have found a workaround where you set "Enabled" to false and then to display it I need set Enabled to true, call CreateTaskPaneInstance on the collection item and then call ShowTaskPane on the collection item too.

This seems very tedious and I feel like perhaps "I'm holding it wrong".

Hello Tim,

To prevent the pane from showing, you should set ADXExcelTaskPane.Visible=false in the ADXExcelTaskPane.ADXBeforeTaskPaneShow event. Use a flag to let the form show: set the flag and call myADXExcelTaskPane1.Show().
