I would like to create an icon in the system tray for my application.  There are obviously many programs out there that do this, so it couldn't be that difficult.  Can someone provide some information on creating a tray icon?  I would like the icon to be able to be clicked and then my program would pop up.

Thanx.

Go to:
http://www.codeguru.com/shell/systemtray.shtml

It provides an excellent explanation so there is no need in copying it here.  If you do have any questions regarding how to implement it, please feel free to ask.

Hello, can you please submit your comment as an answer as that has solved my problem?  Plus, the codeguru web site appears to be a great resource.  It should help me in my efforts to learn MFC.

There's also a full article on System Tray icons available at msdn.microsoft.com/msj (just search for it).  A complete article was written by the folks at MSJ with good documentation.

message.  Ideas?
