    Minimize to tray

    Hey, I've built a calendar/phonebook over the internet and it works great.
    The only thing bothering people about it is that they need to keep it open in order for the calendar to make sounds when they have reminders.
    If I knew how to make a minimize to tray script it would be much easier and convenient for my users.
    I'm almost sure there's no such code in javascript, but is there any way to combine another language with my webpage to do such thing?
    If so, how, what language and which script?

    Thanks.

    Is this any use?

    But obviously this must be installed on the client.

    I've seen that already, thanks.
    I'm looking for something that doesn't require installation.
    I heard that you can combine c# codes with webpages. Is that correct?

    You can combine just about any language with web pages when you generate them on the server but that won't do you any good once the page displays in the browser since it is running on an entirely different computer where you have no access beyond the web page itself unless the person viewing your page gives it to you and even then the access is extremely limited..

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.

    No. That is what Felgall said.

    He hasn't quite said that, he said that if the client gives me the permission maybe I'll be able to do it.

    How can I get such permission and is this going to be enough to control his tray?

    Felgall was speaking generally, but the answer is still no, non, nein, nee and nyet. Capisce?

    Heh, fine. I thought that he might have known some kind of way to do this but if you're so sure there is no way to do it then I believe you.
