I want to place and icon in the task tray while my app is running and use the click, doubleclick, and mouseover events to invoke procedures in my app. Does anyone know how this can be done? Any code would be appreciated.

Some ActiveX controls are available at activex.com.  I have used a control by name "ActiveX System Tray Icon v1.1".
Or

Use API function "Shell_NotifyIcon".  The problem in VB is that this function uses a structure NOTIFYICON.  If u can work out with this structure use this function.  Else creare a OCX control in VC++, using this function.
