How to minimize my windows form to system tray?

I have a standalone application developed in Dot net 3.0. When the Minimize button is pressed (it is in running mode), it should automatically go to system tray (it should run in back ground and icon should be there in system tray) and when the user clicks on the icon in system tray, it should display its Main Form. How to achieve this? Can anyone supply me the code for this?

Add a NotifyIcon to your form. Set the default Visible property to be false.

Add a Form_Resize event handler to the form.

private void Form1_Resize(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
      if(this.WindowState == FormWindowState.Minimized)
      {
            this.Visible = false;
            notifyIcon1.Visible = true;
      }
}

Then add an event handler to the NotifyIcon (usually double click) with this code:

this.Visible = true;
notifyIcon1.Visible = false;

And the following sites should help:
