Hi guys,

I know this question had been asked a couple of times but all the links to the components are broken when i tried them.

My program is basically a roster program.
I would like to know a VERY GOOD FREE component that I could use to minimize the program into the system tray.
I want a popup message such as MSN messenger (when someone logs on) when a schedule item on the roster program is near.

1)How am I be able to do that?
2)Could you give me the EXACT link to the component?

Thanks
ian

    a direct link for JEDI package version 2.10 stable is:
    http://belnet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/jvcl/JCL+JVCL210FullInstall.zip
    download and unzip the file into directory ....\JCL+JVCL210FullInstall
    then run Install.bat

    TJvBalloonHint is at the "Jv Custom" tab
    TJvTrayIcon is from "Jv Win32"
