Balloon Tips

Hi, what it is I've got balloon tips working after a lot of trial and error lol and it comes up when the application is minimized to the tray notifying the user that it has been minimized. What I want to do is add a little functionality to the balloon tip, for example like Windows Live Mail application, it has on the balloon tip.

"Click here to stop showing this message" or something or other in the balloon tip, I was wondering is there any way to do that with Visual Basic, I've got the Registry key already in place to capture it if it is clicked but I don't know how to pull if the balloon was clicked or not.

This is the code I'm using to pull up the balloon tip
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.     If Me.WindowState = 1 Then
  2.         With t
  3.             .uTimeout = 1000
  4.             .dwInfoFlags = vbInformation
  5.             .szInfoTitle = MIN_MSG_TITLE & Chr$(0)
  6.             .szInfo = MIN_MSG_STRNG & Chr$(0)
  7.         End With
  9.     ' ok, write it to the system tray icon
  10.     If QueryValue(REGKEY, "ShowBalloon") = "1" Then
  11.         Shell_NotifyIcon NIM_MODIFY, t
  12.     End If
If anyone can offer any advice on the matter would be much appreciated.

Kind Regards

I think you'll find this very useful.
By the way, there it's done a different way to how you do it.
I think they just act as if the icon in the systray is a form, therefore you can change its icon and respond to mouse clicks.
