Application Icon to display in Windows status bar

I am using MS VC++ 4.0 and am trying to find out how to create an application whos icon appears in the little area next to the time display in Windows95 main status bar.  You know, the place where the modem icon, volume control icon, etc. are displayed.  What's the trick to doing this in MFC?  Code examples are greatly appreciated!

You will need to look into the Shell_NotifyIcon() API. Fortunately, there's already code written available on www.codeguru.com.

Thanks thui!  I downloaded the code at the site you pointed to, however I don't think my compiler recognizes some of the identifiers.  But the site gave me the keyword "TrayIcon" which has helped me out a lot in getting started on this project.
