Minimize app. to "System Tray"/Program Bar Status Area??
Posted on 1998-05-03
All of you know the applications that don't show up in the Launch Bar, but instead only display a little icon at the right edge, e.g. the speaker icon, the printer icon, the dial-up monitor, but also Winfax and ICQ (to name a few "non-system" programs).
Can this be done in Delphi programs?
I tried to find a few hints in the Delphi help, but couldn't find anything useful. There is a reference to the "Taskbar status area", but no hint how to "get there".
Once again - I'd like my application to show up there minimized, but NOT be displayed in the Taskbar.
I guess 100 points are appropriate if there is an "easy" way of doing it. If this is possible but very complicated (maybe some direct WinAPI calls or the like), I'd also pay a lot more as soon as it works - whatever seems to be appropriate. I mostly answer questions (Web areas) and hardly ask any - I have lots of points available...
P.S.: I am using Delphi 3, so that shouldn't be a problem :-)
