    Question System Tray

    I'm working on a program that is supposed to run in the background all throughout the user's login period.
    In light of that, I figured it would be a little annoying for the user to see a window in the taskbar. But a small icon in the system tray would do.

    Anybody know how I might do this? I'm having difficulty finding it on MSDN.

    Look up the Shell_NotifyIcon() API function in the help, (or MSDN).
    Wave upon wave of demented avengers march cheerfully out of obscurity unto the dream.
