Making a VB .net program run from they system tray

P: n/a
Dear folks,
I just completed an autoresponder program. My program should be constantly running to monitor the folder of exchange server, but I just don't want to minimize it in my test box. Is there a way to make it like a icon on the system tray, next to the system clock? Any pointers would be appreciated.

cheers,

Ranjan

Hi Ranjan,

You can use the NotifyIcon component to accomplish this.

MSDN has a good example in the "Windows Forms - How-To System Tray Icon"
folder of their "101 Code Samples for Visual Basic .NET" download:

Take care,

Eric
