Here is some code.....
-------------
// This needs to be in your public declarations of the pas file....
procedure TForm1.IconCallBackMessage( var Mess : TMessage );
  message WM_USER + 100;

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
var
   nid : TNotifyIconData;
begin
     with nid 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 := 'This is the hint!';
     end;
     Shell_NotifyIcon( NIM_ADD, @nid );
end;

procedure TForm1.FormClose(Sender: TObject; var Action: TCloseAction);
var
   nid : TNotifyIconData;
begin
     with nid do
     begin
           cbSize := SizeOf( TNotifyIconData );
           Wnd := Form1.Handle;
           uID := 1;
