     This is a demo project that uses a NOTIFYICONDATA struct and Shell_NotifyIcon() to create an icon for your application in the system tray. I also included a popup menu that is displayed at the cursor's position when the window receives a WM_LBUTTONUP message. I created a new message with ::RegisterWindowMessage, and created a message handling function for it. When messages are sent to the windows' WndProc() function, i took all the messages that were from the icon and sent them to a custom function that decides what to do according to the message. Hope this comes in handy for someone, because i haven't found many other working examples out there. Enjoy

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
