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

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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"
