    notifyIcon1.BalloonTipText = "Balloon Tip Text.";
    notifyIcon1.BalloonTipIcon = ToolTipIcon.Error;
    this.Click += new EventHandler(Form1_Click);

void Form1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) 
    notifyIcon1.Visible = true;
Private Sub SetBalloonTip()
    notifyIcon1.Icon = SystemIcons.Exclamation
    notifyIcon1.BalloonTipTitle = "Balloon Tip Title"
    notifyIcon1.BalloonTipText = "Balloon Tip Text."
    notifyIcon1.BalloonTipIcon = ToolTipIcon.Error
