This function creates a notification balloon on the desktop.

[[{{{image}}}|link=|]] Note: MTA won't show any tray notifications if the MTA window is focused, because there is no reason to show tray notifications if you are in-game. If you want to test this function you should use a Timer and switch to your desktop.
[[{{{image}}}|link=|]] Note: You can only show a tray notification every 30 seconds.
