WinCE / SystemTray

Question:
My question involves SystemTray controls for WinCE 2.0. I am familiar with the ActiveX controls that can use the SystemTray in Win95. However, I am not sure how to do it in WinCE. Can you help?

Answer:
You can associate a 16 x 16 icon with your application, to be displayed on its taskbar button, by sending a WM_SETICON message to your application’s main window. Windows CE doesn’t support the RegisterClassEx function.If you’re using VB, you can use the form’s “ShowInTaskbar” property to show the form’s icon in the taskbar (or not).
