Me again...
Now I use a TShellNotifyIcon.
some code:

private
  procedure WndProc ( var Msg: TMessage ); override;
end;

procedure TfrmMain.WndProc ( var Msg: TMessage );
var       pos: TPoint;
begin
     case Msg.Msg of
     WM_User + 1 :
        case Msg.LParam of
             WM_RBUTTONDOWN:
                begin
                     GetCursorPos ( pos );
                     mnuMain.Popup ( pos.x, pos.y );
                end;
             WM_LBUTTONDOWN:
                begin
                    //still to do
                end;
        end;
     end;
     inherited;
end;

everything's working fine, except to the fact, that when the mnuMain.Popup function is called, it doesn't take it back. I mean: when you open a popup-menu by a right-click onto an Icon in the Shell_NotificationArea and then click onto the Desktop or onto the window of another app, the popup-menu disapears. Well, my popup window does not disapear. Why ?
I did already try

begin
  Application.ProcessMessages;
  ShowWindow ( Application.Handle, SW_HIDE );
end.

at the end of my code. Still, the popup-menu stays visible.
Well, at least until you move the cursor over it again. If you clicked onto the desktop before ( lost focus ) and then move the cursor to the still visible popup-menu, then it disapears.

okay, I figured something out:

I placed a TTimer with TTimer.Interval := 10 onto my form and the TTimer.OnTimer event:

procedure TfrmMain.Timer.OnTimer ( Sender: TObject );
begin
  Application.ProcessMessages;
end;

it works now.
Anybody better ideas ??

Greetings, Oli

Oli,

use these two functions before showing the popup menu:

SetForegroundWindow(Application.Handle);
Application.ProcessMessages;

Hmmm. This works under win95. Have not tested it with win98. Win98 behaves a little bit different when calling SetForegroundWindow. Please just try it.

Regards... Madshi.

Madshi => cool, it works perfect, at least with Win95. I'll test it with Win98 some other time, that's not so important.
How about setting your comment to an answer?
Or do you think, you already have enough points ?  ;-)
