Problem with taskbar icon
I'm new to this board but have been visiting other C++ boards for a couple of months. I've gone through the "Hello World", for ... next and other loops etc. I'm interested in creating a custom System Tray icon and have seen code on The Code Project and Planet Source Code. I have Dev-C++ and VCEE but I prefer the former.
I was very pleased when your code compiled correctly (with Dev-C++) and I'd like to add a custom icon. I realise that I'll have to include the icon details as the code is compiled but how exactly would I include it as a resource? I realise that I can add a resource file (tab) on the right side of the Dev-C++ editing screen but, if that's the right way to go about it, what do I write in the resource file? Is it the filepath and name of the icon or do I need to copy and paste binary/hex data (for instance)?
I would have sent you a PM but it seems that I'm not allowed to do that yet!
Finally, you said that you had a version which has a popup menu - I'd like to see that, if you don't mind posting it.
Thanks for your time (and patience)!
