here is code to do it your self or the other alternative is to look for a tray icon component or leave your mail address and I'll mail you my Trayicon component, any here is the code...

first place this procedure in the public section..
  public
    { Public declarations }
  procedure IconCallBackMessage( var Mess : TMessage ); message WM_USER
  + 100;//public procedure

then on the onformcreate cut and paste this code...

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
var
   Icd : TNotifyIconData;
begin
     ShowWindow(Application.handle, SW_HIDE);
     Self.Hide;
     with Icd do
     begin
           cbSize := SizeOf( TNotifyIconData );
           Wnd := Form1.Handle;
           uID := 1;
           uFlags := NIF_ICON or NIF_MESSAGE or NIF_TIP;
           uCallbackMessage := WM_USER + 100;
           hIcon := Application.Icon.Handle;
           szTip := 'Cool I got it right Wooooo Weeeee';
     end;
     Shell_NotifyIcon( NIM_ADD, @Icd );
end;

then on the onformclose cut and paste this code...

procedure TForm1.FormClose(Sender: TObject; var Action: TCloseAction);
var
   Icd : TNotifyIconData;
begin
     with Icd do
     begin
           cbSize := SizeOf( TNotifyIconData );
           Wnd := Form1.Handle;
           uID := 1;
           uFlags := NIF_ICON or NIF_MESSAGE or NIF_TIP;
           uCallbackMessage := WM_USER + 100;
           hIcon := Application.Icon.Handle;
           szTip := 'Hint here';
// All the above is probably not needed.
     end;
     Shell_NotifyIcon( NIM_DELETE, @Icd );
end;
then create the procedure from the public procedure, cut and paste this to...

procedure TForm1.IconCallBackMessage( var Mess : TMessage );
var
   sEventLog : String;
begin
     case Mess.lParam of
// Do whatever you wish here. For example popup up a menu on a right click.
          WM_LBUTTONDBLCLK  : sEventLog := 'Left Double Click';
          WM_LBUTTONDOWN    : sEventLog := 'Left Down';
          WM_LBUTTONUP      : sEventLog := 'Left Up';
          WM_MBUTTONDBLCLK  : sEventLog := 'M Dbl';
          WM_MBUTTONDOWN    : sEventLog := 'M D';
          WM_MBUTTONUP      : sEventLog := 'M U';
          WM_MOUSEMOVE      : sEventLog :=  'movement';
          WM_MOUSEWHEEL     : sEventLog := 'Wheel';
          WM_RBUTTONDBLCLK  : sEventLog := 'r dbl';
          WM_RBUTTONDOWN    : sEventLog := 'r down';
          WM_RBUTTONUP      : sEventLog := 'r up';
     end;
end;

let me know if you would like my component...

Later
