I have a system tray app that does a lot of initialization work which means it will not be able to respond to users for about 5 to 10 seconds. What I'd like to do is display a balloon tip requesting that the user be patient and wait for the app to fully initialize. I'm currently using balloon tips for edit controls etc. So, my question is, is there any way to display a balloon tip at the system tray as soon as the app is started and before the icon appears in the system tray?
