Start application as notifyIcon + Keybinding


I created a TAPI application which when a person calls an internet page opens up with his information. But what I want is for the program to start as just an Notify icon and when you click the icon the form opens up.

+ I would like to add a keybinding to it. So when a phonenumber is selected and the user presses for example Ctrl+W the program opens up with the main form and the number written in the textbox.

How can this be achieved?

*Be aware that if your desired hot key combination is already registered by another program then your attempt to register it will fail.  If this occurs and you absolutely want that key combination, then use a low level keyboard hook (WH_KEYBOARD_LL) instead.
