Notifyicon pop-up question.

Hi all,

I've got notifyicon (ntfSystemInfo) component on my form. It's
basically a system tray icon.
Whenever user puts his mouse over this icon it shows a textspecified
with this command:

ntfSystemInfo.Text = "blahblah"

My problem is that it shows only on mouseover.

My program works the way, that it updates the text of notifyicon in
certain user specified time periods.

I would like to automatically pop-up this text on system tray every
time the text updates. How can I do this?

I need something like msn messanger, to show little roll-up/popup (same
as if a new msn message came) and then after 1-2 seconds to hide it.

How to do this in vb.net?
