For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates handling the Click event. This example assumes that you have added the code to a form containing a NotifyIcon object named NotifyIcon1.

	// Initalize the NofifyIcon object's shortcut menu. 
	private void InitializeContextMenu()
		MenuItem[] menuList = new MenuItem[]{new MenuItem("Sign In"),
			new MenuItem("Get Help"), new MenuItem("Open")};
		ContextMenu clickMenu = new ContextMenu(menuList);
		NotifyIcon1.ContextMenu = clickMenu;

		// Associate the event-handling method with  
		// the NotifyIcon object's click event.
		NotifyIcon1.Click +=new System.EventHandler(NotifyIcon1_Click);

	// When user clicks the left mouse button display the shortcut menu.   
	// Use the SystemInformation.PrimaryMonitorMaximizedWindowSize property 
	// to place the menu at the lower corner of the screen. 
	private void NotifyIcon1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
		System.Drawing.Size windowSize = 
		System.Drawing.Point menuPoint = 
			new System.Drawing.Point(windowSize.Width-180, 
		menuPoint = this.PointToClient(menuPoint);

		NotifyIcon1.ContextMenu.Show(this, menuPoint);
The following sample assumes that you have added the code to a form
containing a NotifyIcon object named NotifyIcon1.
