More information:
This is a .dll version of the control at http://www.freevbcode.com/ShowCode.Asp?ID=841 that allows you to add your application to the system tray. It includes Windows 2000 API functions (though it is backwards compatible with earlier versions), a user drawn menu that includes a number of UI features not available in regualar VB menus, and a number of new features not included with the original control.

To see how the .dll works, open the TrayIcon.vbg project and run the example.
