I have a mfc-based app that I need to have minimise itself to the windows toolbar when it starts.  Not a button on the taskbar, but on the toolbar to the right of that where the clock/volume/etc sits.
Ive looked everywhere and found tons about toolbars in general but nothing about the main windows toolbar.
Can anyone help?

Hi, telkwini

I think you are going to put an icon on the systray area, try the API Shell_NotifyIcon. If still any questions, just ask.

You might want to check out www.codeguru.com - they have a number of examples / class wrappers doing just that.

      hIcon = LoadIcon(IDR_MAINFRAME);//Icon for taskbar
      NOTIFYICONDATA pnid;
      pnid.cbSize = sizeof(NOTIFYICONDATA);
      pnid.hWnd = AfxGetMainWnd()->m_hWnd;
      pnid.uID = IDR_MAINFRAME;
      pnid.uFlags = NIF_ICON;
      pnid.hIcon = hIcon;

       Try this it works but u have to handle the mouse clicks over it and hide the application at start.
