How to Run in the System Tray

    How do I have my program icon show up in the system tray beside the clock and the little speaker?  I would like to run a service-type background process that does not appear on the taskbar in the same way interbase does.  When that icon is in the system tray, how do I know when it is clicked/ right clicked on?  Is it the same as if the icon were in the taskbar?  Thanks in advance for any and all help.

Click on systray. This is the source for a simple TSysTrayIcon icon I posted to usenet a while ago. It could be used as is, or it could serve as a simple explanation on how to use the SysTray-related functions.

To hide your app from the task-list and the taskbar, put the following line in your project source, right after Application.Initialize

ShowWindow(Application.Handle, SW_HIDE);
