I have a small application that shows disk usage etc. I want it to run in the system tray and popup with a little dialog box when you double click on it. Also, I want to add a menu to the icon in the tray so that it can be configured. Firstly, how do I have the app start up in the system tray and minimize to it, and secondly, how do I add the menu to the icon?

thx
