Updates: Add Your App to the Systray the Easy Way

Update3 Mar 2003

  • Added support for Balloon Info tips (Windows ME or 2000 and above required).
  • Added Unicode support (Windows NT required).

Update21 Mar 2000

  • Added the Win32 API call SetForegroundWindow before showing the SysTray menu - this ensures that the menu dismisses when the user clicks off the menu onto (for example) the desktop, whereas before it used to stick.
  • Fixed problem on systems with Large Fonts set. The code hardcoded a twips/pixel value of 15 into the message values responded to from the SysTray. Now the code uses VB's ScaleX method to get the correct message value so it works on all systems.
