Sam,

Unfortunately, we don't have support for the systray at this time.
One reason for this is I'm not sure whether there is a widely accepted standard to support this on Linux on various desktop environments yet, without using KDE or Qt.

For Windows, I have written some code in the past (before Ecere and eC) that uses the tray with the Win32 API, so whichever Win32 API systray tutorial you find is just as good.

If you do write up some nice eC classes to make use of the tray, please share with the rest of us, we might include it in the extras =)

Thanks,
