I wanna make a simple one window application that can be minimized into the taskbar like ICQ. I wanna have a menu that people can right click to access when the application is sitting in the taskbar (wait, it's not called the taskbar is it? it's something else right?. Anyway, how do i create such a window? To recap: Window, minimize same way ICQ, need a right clickable menu. Im using C++ btw. Edited by - LordElectro on January 30, 2001 1:55:38 PM

Look it up on www.codeguru.com. There''s an MFC class there for it.

If you''re using MFC it will help you greatly, if you''re not, it will still be useful for sample code.
