# StatusIcon not showing/working

Good morning dear community, i have a little trouble and i can't found any proper explanation for this issue, actually i'm developing an small application to hear radio streaming using Vala and Granite, the problem comes when i try to make a StatusIcon for the app, i followed the related documentation in various site but no one works i'm doing something bad?

this is my code:

trayicon = new StatusIcon.from_icon_name("gtk-home");
trayicon.set_tooltip_text("Tray");
trayicon.set_visible(true);
trayicon.set_has_tooltip(true);


according with the documentation that might work but doesn't.

let me know if you guys need to the the full code.

thanks for any help.
