Takes advantage of some of the new features in Windows 2000 for balloon tool tips with three properties on the palette: BalloonIcon, BalloonText, BalloonTitle.

The control is backward compatible with previous versions of windows, only difference is that the 'balloon' properties will be disregarded. Call ShowBalloon to show the tooltip; default of 30000 ms timeout.

To get your icon into the system tray, just set the icon property, e.g.,

Set Notifyctrl1.icon = me.icon
