Possible to change app Systray icon tooltip?

8 posts in this topic

I've made a monitoring app that sits in the SysTray; no windows, just an icon.

Currently, when you move the mouse over the icon, it displays the app name only: shuffler.exe

I want to update the tooltip so that it gives info when the mouse is hovering over it to indicate what is currently being done:

"Shuffler: sync complete"

"Shuffler: sync in process"

"Shuffler: monitoring"

"Shuffler: purging"

Is this possible??? I know that AutoIT supports a ToolTip feature but it's a placed ToolTip (needs coordinates).

TIA

Try 'TrayTip'

Traytip (which I also use) does a bubbletip which dissappears within a period of time or when the user closes it so unfortunately, that doesn't address my need.

I need to have the tooltip of the icon in the SysTray update so after my bubbletips are closed, the user can still check the status of the script.

Still looking to resolve this so I figured I'd imitate one of those deaf mutes....opps, I went all GITS:SAC...re-post to get this front-paged again.

I haven't found anything in the manual or various past posts about this. :)

I'm thinking that I might need to suggest it as a new feature request. :D

If you're using one of the newest betas, you can use TraySetToolTip...

Where can I find the beta version with this feature in it?

I looked in the AutoIT beta download area and downloaded the latest file that I could find there but when I tried to use the command it barfed.
