PostPosted: Architecture General, list of icons in the icon notification area Top

Hi,

I'm looking for a method to determine which icons are placed in the notification area, regardless
if they are active or not.
With google I noticed a program called: sti_EV.exe at http://www.hide-link.com/
which shows that it is possible what I want.

My meanings are to capture the event of a change in the area and then check if a certain icon
is placed. For example an icon that notifies a failure.

TIA,

Gearloose

I've been studying a little and I'am able to create a list of applications that have an icon installed
in the notification area. Most of them are "explorer.exe" because they are system icons, like
networkconnectivity.
Now I want to create an hook to check if icons are added or removed and if so, which application was responsible.
I saw something about SetWindowsHookEx, but can't figure out how to use this.
