I would like to create a desktop notifier like the ones used by popular AVs. It would be a simple widget at the bottom right of the screen. For example, here is the popup used by Avira Antivirus :
I am fluent in Python, C++ and Java. I have also a bit of experience with the Qt Framework. Is there a good article on how to do it? If not, is there a good library out there that would allow me to create such popups?
I am more interested in the way to create the popup than the actual design of the popup, as long as I can use interesting widgets in it (like pictures and buttons).
The target platform is Windows 8.
