Hi All,

I have created a software where all users are request for some materials. After that management approve or reject the request based on some criteria. To check the status user always have to check in the software.

Now management want, if a user requests approve/reject by the management a notification icon will display only to this particular user's computer. They do not want to open the software and check again and again.

How can I do this. Please advice some logic or code.

Note: I have used windows application and sql server.

If requirement is to show notify icon there must be an app or service running on user's computer which will wait for some message. Few days ago I already posted an answer to similar question on CP (link at bottom).

You can add some code to your app to wait for messages (app can be minimized to tray) or write another small app/service to handle messaging.

There is a windows network base solution but it shows Message box instead of notification icon. This solution is net send DOS command:[^]

Another solution is to send e-mails to users.

Here you have my answer to another question:
Notify icon to all employee computer's when adding new employee[^]

I hope it help you.
