I have added an icon to the taskbar and can respond to mouse messages using the callback function.
But when I use the TrackPopupMenu function, I need to get the position of the mouse to put into the third & fourth fields of TrackPopupMenu function. Otherwise the menu will appear in the top left of the screen.
How can I get these coordinates of the mouse when it over the taskbar icon so that the menu will be adjacent to the mouse when clicked.
Thanks for help
