I think I've probably asked this question already, but I'm very interested in testing Mono WinForms apps with LDTP.

Is it already possible?

We're creating a new testsuite (we already have one based on TestComplete) with White + PNUnit:

and it would be great to have something with LDTP

Hi Nagappan,

Yes, I'd like to contact you directly to talk about it. I'd need some guidance to start writing LDTP code for WinForms/Mono.

I'll email you to your account (as displayed on the mono list)

System tray is available under gnome-panel application. You can use accerciser for now to navigate to the tray icon. Some tray icons are embedded-component. I verified them long back in openSUSE. I will be happy to try it. Can you please provide me the application info ?
