minimizing Visual Basic application to the status bar

hi all,

I created an .exe Form using Visual Basic 6. I need to place a button inside my form that have an action of minimizing the Form the status bar. That mean the form should disappear from the screen and a small icon should appear on the status bar on the right buttom corner of the windows desktop (beside the icon that state the network connection). How can I do that??

Here you can find an activex control to do that if you would like a lot of coding: http://www.solution-shelf.com/CodeTips/TrayIcon.htm

I would guess that the links above tell you how to create and activate a tray icon - just don't forget to do a formname.Hide.
