Balloon message from the TrayIcon How-to?

P: n/a
Hi Everyone,
I want to design a utility that will give the user some notification
messages similar to the way Outlook 2003 or the "Windows Updates
Notification" Notify users with a Balloon message that is animated at the
lower-Right corner of the Screen.
I am using VB.NET 2003
Is there a class already built-in that support this functionality?
If not, does anyone have some code samples that may help me develop this
functionality?

Please help... it is an important feature I want to implement.

thank you,

Hi Sam,

have a look at

http://msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/?pu...bpowerpack.asp

"NotificationWindow"

This control maybe will fit your needs.
