I am currently making a program that will display in the task-bar on the bottom right of desktop. I had created a program like this in college but am trying to relearn the process using WPF. Now this is all fine and good til I realized there was no such feature inside the WPF. You could add references to the form versions of NotifyIcon, but I found like to be less then desirable with some odd side effects.
A simple project became more of an issue, but rather then changing it to a forms project I looked around for a third party library. Luckily I was able to find a few. While the application is not complete yet I at least wanted to post my findings. The resource is on Codeproject.
