Applications can use the Windows taskbar notification area to display an icon for various purposes, often as a replacement for the usual minimized button on the taskbar.

The functionality is simpler than most people realize, involving:

  • adding/removing the icon in the taskbar notification area
  • showing a pop-up ToolTip
  • showing a pop-up balloon ToolTip
  • changing the icon used to display in the taskbar notification area
  • notifying the application when the icon or the balloon ToolTip is clicked on.

All other functionality, including showing/hiding the application and pop-up menus, are handled by the application itself.
