Experts,

I have an interesting problem and that is that i am trying to provide users a notification as soon as the loading of a winform/wpf form is completed and provide a checkbox on the notification to allow user to suppress the notification for the session. But there should be a small icon in the taskbar available to reopen the window as well.Can this be done and i would really appreciate help on that.

You can create this small tray icon using something like this (on your app window ctor)

For popups manual please take a look at: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/WPF/WPF_xaml_taskbar_window.aspx
System.Windows.Forms.NotifyIcon ni = new System.Windows.Forms.NotifyIcon();
        ni.Icon = new System.Drawing.Icon("App.ico");
        ni.Visible = true;
        ni.DoubleClick += 
            delegate(object sender, EventArgs args)
            {
                this.Show();
                this.WindowState = WindowState.Normal;
            };

Open in new window
