Post Tray Baloon Notifications

There is a feature in Win2K/ME/XP, called "tray baloon". Looks like this:



(screenshot was taken from Watznew program)

I think its a great way to notify user about important stuff. Following events should be available (as options) for tray baloon notificatios:

- connecting to <...>
- connected to <...>
- transfer started: <filename.xxx> (xxx Kb)
- transfer completed: <filename.xxx> (in <hh:mm:ss>)
- transfer completed: <filename.xxx> (in <hh:mm:ss>), Queue Empty
- disconnected: <reason>

Current "sounds" menu can be modified to include these notifications setup.

Hello,

Would you happen to know which Windows API's are used for displaying these Tray Balloons? I've never heard of them before.

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Set sysTray = New SystemTray.Application
    Call sysTray.CreateIcon(App.Path & "\Trffc10c.ico", "My Icon")
    Call sysTray.ShowBalloon("Hello", &H1, "www.flasfxp.com.com")
End Sub

Here is a link to MSDN article "Using ToolTip controls", go to "Baloon Tooltips" there.

BStar - You're programming in Delphi right? I might have some explicit Delphi code for doing this..
