    Resolved [RESOLVED] Need to display a number in the system tray

    We have Virtual Desktops that have a number in the computer name. For example, VM-1, VM-2, etc. What I want to do is pull out the number and have it appear in the system tray so we know which VM we are connected to.

    Does anyone know how I can have a number show up in the system tray? For example, if I wanted the number 5 to show up in the system tray, how would I do that?

    In the codebank section is a system tray project. You may want to start there. The number will be a bitmap/icon you will create.
