TraySetIcon with .jpg or .ico - solved

Recommended Posts



Wondering if anyone has found a way to set the trayicon using a .ico instead of an icon from a exe or dll.

#Include <Constants.au3>

Opt("TrayMenuMode",1)   ; Default tray menu items (Script Paused/Exit) will not be shown.

$exititem       = TrayCreateItem("Exit")


$start = 0
While 1
    $msg = TrayGetMsg()
    If $msg = $exititem Then ExitLoop
    $diff = TimerDiff($start)
    If $diff > 1000 Then
        $num = -Random(0,100,1) ; negative to use ordinal numbering
        ToolTip("#icon=" & $num)
        $start = TimerInit()
