SystemTray Icon

Oct 17, 2013 at 11:14 PM
Hi, I'm using <m:ui/> for an application so I can get the modern look and feel in a Desktop app. Great work!

One thing I'm trying to do that I can' seem to accomplish is get the application to live in the System Tray after the app is closed so the app can continue to run in the background. I've found that WPF can't do that without referencing some Windows Forms APIs (, but I can't get it to work. I tried implementing it, but it seems like the constructor for MainWindow never gets hit.

Do you have any guidance on how to make this work?
