    Just happened to have this example around...

    Code:
    #include <windows.h> 
    
    
    LRESULT CALLBACK MainProc (HWND, UINT, WPARAM, LPARAM); 
    
    static TCHAR szClass[ ]   = TEXT( "SystemTrayApp" ); 
    static TCHAR szCaption[ ] = TEXT( "System Tray - Dante Shamest" ) ; 
    
    static const int TRAYICON_ID    = 2410 ; 
    static const int WM_TRAYICONMSG = WM_USER + 2 ; 
    
    int WINAPI WinMain (HINSTANCE hThisInstance, 
                        HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, 
                        LPSTR lpszArgument, 
                        int nFunsterStil) 
    
    { 
        HWND hwnd; 
        MSG messages; 
        WNDCLASSEX wincl; 
    
        wincl.hInstance     = hThisInstance; 
        wincl.lpszClassName = szClass; 
        wincl.lpfnWndProc   = MainProc; 
        wincl.style         = CS_DBLCLKS; 
        wincl.cbSize        = sizeof (WNDCLASSEX); 
        wincl.hIcon         = LoadIcon (NULL, IDI_APPLICATION); 
        wincl.hIconSm       = LoadIcon (NULL, IDI_APPLICATION); 
        wincl.hCursor       = LoadCursor (NULL, IDC_ARROW); 
        wincl.lpszMenuName  = NULL; 
        wincl.cbClsExtra    = 0; 
        wincl.cbWndExtra    = 0; 
        wincl.hbrBackground = GetSysColorBrush( COLOR_3DFACE ) ; 
    
        if (!RegisterClassEx (&wincl)) 
            return 0; 
    
        hwnd = CreateWindowEx ( 
               0,

    Hi Dante Shamest,

    Thank you. You are too kind to give me an example. I will look at your code. Just now, seemed will work for just my own programs' tray icon. As an early comment, was need to access to any program icon in tray. But a very good start for me. I will try.

    Best Regards
