How to properly display a pop-up menu from a system tray icon. Responds to mouse click without needing a callback procedure, plus allows keyboard focus from a pop-up menu.

Properly erases the menu when the user clicks somewhere other than the pop-up menu. 

Special Instructions

Uses the following API functions:

  • CallNextHookEx
  • CopyMemory (RtlMoveMemory)
  • GetWindowThreadProcessID
  • Shell_NotifyIcon
  • SetForegroundWindow
  • SetWindowsHookEx
  • UnHookWindowsHookEx
