Preventing a taskbar button with C and X11-libs

Anyone know how to prevent a program from putting a button on the taskbar when using C with X11 libs? google is no help, I'm writing a program to monitor system status and display it in X, but having a taskbar button seems pointless for this type of program.

Also, anyone know how to make the window "always on top" by default?

And anyone know how to specify (and read) window position?

The source is available at my homepage .

Preventing a button: the taskbar is created by your window manager, depends which one you're using.

Always on top: depends on your window manager, for kde you've got the pin you can use.

specify size: -geometry ??x??, to read use xwininfo

It sounds like you might want a dock application, look it up.
