Hello guys

I have a component named RxTrayIcon that sends my application to system tray. My application is on the start, when the computer is turned on my system is loaded . What I want is after loading my system is to hide it. When I click on close system I run this code:

  RxTrayIcon1.Active := True;
  CanClose := False

How could I do this after loading it.

How about dropping a timer onto your form and enabling it after load. Set the timer to a couple of seconds then call that exact code within the timer event. Ive used this way many times.

procedure TForm1.Timer1Timer(Sender: TObject);
  Timer1.Enabled := False;
  RxTrayIcon1.Active := True;

Hi, you can also do this in your Project's code:

Application.ShowMainForm := False;
