Excel task pane opens after switching to backstage view

Hi everybody,
I have created an excel task pane with version 9.4.4644 of ADX. If the user closes the task pane via the X button and then switches to the Backstage view (for example, after clicking on 'File'), the task pane is then visible again in Excel. Is there a way to suppress this behavior?

With best regards,
Marcel Mrozinski

Hello Marcel,

Add-in Express creates a pane whenever the context matches the pane settings. To prevent a pane from being shown you set {ADX task pane class}.Visible = false in the ADXBeforeTaskPaneShow event. In your case, you should set a flag when the ADXCloseButtonClick event is raised and check this flag in the ADXBeforeTaskPaneShow event to set Visible to true or false.
