Traytip's with Windows 7 and Vista

Recommended Posts

ParoXsitiC

The help file says it is only supported in 2000/XP only. However, it seems to be working for me in Windows 7.

Is this no longer an issue, or is it intermittent? Have we found a solution thats similar? I think it would be nice to have like an MSN(Windows live) style popup.

ParoXsitiC,

My Help file says:

TrayTip works for only Windows 2000/XP or better

so I would expect it to work in Vista/Win7 as they are later versions than W2K/XP. :blink:

I see my mistake; It says (2000/XP only) at the top of the help file, but then under remarks it says or better.

TrayTip

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Displays a balloon tip from the AutoIt Icon. (2000/XP only)

Remarks

TrayTip works for only Windows 2000/XP or better.

ParoXsitiC,

Good spot. Why not put in a "documentation bug" report on Trac to get it fixed. :blink:

Actually, I can't get TrayTip to work at all in Win7. Just as a test, I copied and pasted the example code right out of the help file:

TrayTip("I'm a title", "I'm the message", 5, 1)
MsgBox(4096,"", "Press OK to see another tip.")
TrayTip("clears any tray tip","",0)
TrayTip("", "A different tray tip.", 5)
Sleep(5000)

It works fine on an XP machine, but only displays the message box on Win7. I even went to taskbar properties and told it to show icon and notifications. Perhaps there is a setting in Win7 that disables balloon tips globally?

I saw this:

http://www.recipester.org/Recipe:Disable_or_Enable_Balloon_Tips_in_Windows_7_39291042

Tried adding 'EnableBalloonTips' and setting its value to 1, but still nothing?
