Also on w2k previous Hint is not removed untill timout.
Even when I call
TrayIcon.BalloonHint('Hint1', ... true);
TrayIcon.BalloonHint('Hint2', ... true);
Previouse ('Hint1') continue to show for some time and than changes to new one.

This is actualy my project I'm testing now.

I will try to create a patch for this problems.

Ignore my Win98 remarks...

On Win200 you need to call BalloonHint('', ''); the same number of times you called show BalloonHint('Mesage', '...');

This will hide the Balloon.

Thanks for the report, I will investigate how to fix that.
Please note however, that as said in the sources, the "hiding" of a balloon is undocumented behaviour.

I took a version Revision 1.27 from CVS.
And tested on W2K It is solving my problem!

To test this I have made a form add two button to hide and show icon.
When do show hide using button it is working.
So I made a new button and this one hide one balloon and make another one in one function no delay! This does work as well for old and new code ....
So this is not the code to test this particualar problem.

If you want me to test something you are welcome to e-mail me
