    taskbar application

    I usually write MFC applications.

    I have found myself needing to write a small application that will just run on the taskbar.

    I assume that this means writing straigt SDK code for this. Can someone point me to a sample of this type of app?

    if by taskbar you really mean systray then look up the shell function Shell_NotifyIcon() at msdn or in your helpfiles.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!

    I have been able to put the icon on the system tray succesfully.

    I ended up going with MFC and used a dialog. Is there a way to stop the dialog from appearing? I just want the systray icon as the only application interface.

    I have tried commenting out the CDialog:OnInitDialog() but that didnt do anything.

    I found it. I just had to go look in another file and comment out the DoModal.
