Tray Tip Help

6 posts in this topic

Hi All,

In VB.Net if we display some message as tray tip and if we click on the tray tip there is an option to set an action like open the tool. For example i am running a tool, when i minimize the tool i am getting a tray message stating "The X Tool is still running" now if i click on the tray tip it will restore the tool back. Do we have a similar type of setting here ? can we do that ?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Guinness,

I am talking about the tray tip. For example if i execute the below code i will get a baloon tip on tray... now if i click on the baloon tip the minimized tool should get restore... is that possible to do ? sorry for not unclear message i posted on top :mellow:

AutoIt uses a hidden window (CLASS AutoIt v3) for handling the tray icon, traytips and balloon tips

so that scripts without a gui can have a tray icon and tips.

There are no event notifications available to the user for the tray tips.

The AutoIt v3 window must be subclassed to get at the tip notifications.

Alternatively, you can create your own tray icon and tip message handler using code in Holgers Modern Menu UDF

I posted a solution for the native AutoIt tray tip a while ago.

here is another version of that code.

Tested in XP SP3 x86 and Vista Ultimate x86

#AutoIt3Wrapper_AU3Check_Parameters=-d -w 1 -w 2 -w 3 -w 4 -w 5 -w 6

This is cool and which i wanted! Also bit complex for my knowledge :) but i will take my own time and will understand how it works :mellow: Thanks a lot rover!
