Hi,
    How can make my application resides in the tray when it is minimized? I'm using MSVC 5.0 and working on a win98 platform. I'm creating a dialog-based program using MFC Appwizard(EXE).

Any help offered will be very much appreciated!!!

I could give you a whole lot of information, but it would be tons easier to pick up a previous MSJ article in the March 1996 release.  

Also look for it at www.microsoft.com/msj

Can you not find the article?  There's full source code and everything on creating the icon.

What would you like me to be more specific on. Article name?
