i have a GUI AutoIT software and i'd like to hide the taskbar to only have a trayicon (with a menu to show/hide).

When i'll click on "-", it will hide the software to the tray icon and when i will click on "x", it will close the software.

Could you help me please ?

I have already try to search information on the board but i was rather complicated..

Thanks for your support :-)

Is this more understandable? :)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Opt("TrayOnEventMode", 1) ; Use event trapping for tray menu
Opt("TrayMenuMode", 3) ; Default tray menu items will not be shown.

TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1, "Tray_Show")
TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1, "Tray_Hide")
TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1, "On_Exit")


; Make GUI a child of the hidden Autoit window - then it has no taskbar button
$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500, -1, -1, -1, -1, WinGetHandle(AutoitWinGetTitle()))


While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        ; Click [X]
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        ; Click [_]
            ; Hide as well as minimize
            GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $hGUI)


Func Tray_Show()
    ; Show and also restore in case it was minimized
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI)
    GUISetState(@SW_RESTORE, $hGUI)

Func Tray_Hide()
    GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $hGUI)

Func On_Exit()
