[REBOL] Re: system tray

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 28-Oct-2002 9:29

Hi Graham, << Anyone have an idea as to how to setup an application that sits in the system tray? Does access to the system port in windows allow this? >> You need to use the Shell_NotifyIcon API and, yes, catch messages via the system port. In addition, since the tray only uses icons as images, you need to create the icons somehow, maybe with CreateIconFromResource, ExtractIconEx, or some other method. I haven't tried it, so I don't know what snags you might run into. --Gregg
