TrayTip fades away fast

Recommended Posts

Roshith

Hi,

When I use traytip with timeout 20 secs, sometimes it stays for 20secs or more, but sometimes it fades away fast (less than 5 secs). What is the reason for this. Is there any work around.

TrayTip("Title", "Text", 20)

Sleep(30000)

Read carefully before you ask question.

timeout:

A rough estimate of the time (in seconds) the balloon tip should be displayed. (Windows has a min and max of about 10-30 seconds but does not always honor a time in that range.)

Roshith,

I had the same question last week...take a look at and you can see what suggestions were given, and how I resolved it.

Hope this helps,

Another idea is how about using by Melba23, it creates a small customisable GUI in the traymenu.

You're welcome, the UDF is well written and very easy to implement.

      Hi all,
      I was wondering if you can help me with the function called; InetRead().
      My scripts are using this function a lot for several conditions and everything works fine!
      But sometimes when the server is a little bit buggy of simply not available my script is hanging.
      It takes about 90sec before this function returns a Timeout, when i adjust the parameter it still is hanging about 90sec.
      The following script is a example where the script is hanging for aprox. 90sec;
      ; Set Timeout to 2sec AutoItSetOption ("TCPTimeout", 2000) ; Read Website InetRead("http://www.geenverbinding.nl/",1) ; Show Msgbox before Ending Script. Msgbox(64,"","Finished")  
      The following script is a example where the script show the Msgbox pretty fast;

       
      ; Set Timeout to 2sec AutoItSetOption ("TCPTimeout", 2000) ; Read Website InetRead("http://www.google.nl/",1) ; Show Msgbox before Ending Script. Msgbox(64,"","Finished")  
      My question now is, what am i doing wrong and/or is there a other way to prevent Hanging the script?
      Thanks all

      Hey all,

      I have a question about the Windows-10 Traytips and how to assign a function on them.
      So the Traytip will be displayed and when i click it i would like to run a function.
       
      Currently i am looking at the following Topic; https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/140699-tray-notifications-redirector/

      Tried it and it works fine, but now all my TrayTIps are clickable to the same function.
      Is it possible to read the Traytip name and then run a function according to what tip is showing?
       
      Thanks

      traytip isn't working in windows 10. nothing happens when i use the Traytip command.
      here's a simple script i used:
      TrayTip("I'm a title", "I'm the message", 5) i tried changing the registry setting HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced ( which didn't have EnableBalloonTips) and creating a DWORD entry called EnableBalloonTips and setting it to 1 and logging off then back in. that did not resolve the problem.
      i'm running Windows 10 v1709 b16299.431

      I have automated an install process by using the below code.
       
      Func _WinWaitActivate($title,$text,$timeout=0) WinWait($title,$text,$timeout) If Not WinActive($title,$text) Then WinActivate($title,$text) WinWaitActive($title,$text,$timeout) EndFunc $win1 = "Text 1" $win2 = "Text 2" _WinWaitActivate($win1,"WARNING: This progra") Send("{ALTDOWN}n{ALTUP}");Send("{SPACE}") _WinWaitActivate($win1,"I DISAGREE and &do n") Send("{UP}n") _WinWaitActivate($win1,"Customer Information") Send("{ALTDOWN}n{ALTUP}");Send("{TAB}{TAB}n") _WinWaitActivate($win1,"Click Next to instal") Send("{ALTDOWN}n{ALTUP}");Send("n") _WinWaitActivate($win1,"This feature require") Send("{ALTDOWN}n{ALTUP}");Send("{TAB}n") _WinWaitActivate($win1,"Ready to Install the") Send("{ALTDOWN}i{ALTUP}");Send("i") _WinWaitActivate($win1,"The InstallShield Wi") Send("{ALTDOWN}f{ALTUP}");Send("f") _WinWaitActivate($win2,"You must restart you") Send("{ALTDOWN}n{ALTUP}");Send("n") Now if any new screen comes in the middle of installation, like some VC++ installation error or like that.
      The AutoIT is waiting in the background.
      Is there any way to skip the new screens with just "enter" and continue the installation??

      Hey all!

      It's been a while since I've posted but here is a simple little function I thought I'd share that allows you to keep a script process active for a minimum amount of time.

      I use this to ensure the process is active to ensure any TrayTips remain visible.  But I'm sure there is far more interesting uses for this.
      How it Works
      The coder calls the KeepAlive function with the number of seconds he/she wants to ensure the process will remain active for the next n seconds.  Let's say you just called the TrayTip function with 15 seconds display time.  You might call KeepAlive with 18 seconds to ensure the process stays active for the next 18 seconds.  If the process is closed after that, then the process will close normally.
      #Region - KeepAlive Functions ;## Function used to ensure the process stays active for the next n seconds. This is useful to ensure ToolTips ect remain visible. #cs - Example TrayTip(@ScriptName, "This Tip will be called just prior to exit of process.", 5) KeepAlive(8) Exit #ce - Example Func KeepAlive($Seconds = 5) Global $KeeyAlive_IsActive = False Global $KeeyAlive_Init = 0 Global $KeeyAlive_Timeout = 0 ;## Check if there is a previously set timer and only set the new value if it is more than the previously set value. If $KeeyAlive_Timeout - TimerDiff($KeeyAlive_Init) < $Seconds * 1000 Then $KeeyAlive_Init = TimerInit() $KeeyAlive_Timeout = $Seconds * 1000 EndIf ;## If the callback is not yet regerister to execute on exit, register it now. If Not $KeeyAlive_IsActive Then $KeeyAlive_IsActive = True OnAutoItExitRegister("__KeepAlive_OnExit") EndIf EndFunc ;## Private On Exit Function used to ensure program remains active for a previously defined number of seconds. Func __KeepAlive_OnExit() ;## If closeing due to Loffoff or shutdown. Allow it without Delay. If @exitMethod > 2 Then Return ;## Check for reasons that process should be clsoed immediatly without delay. If @exitMethod > 2 Or Not IsDeclared("KeeyAlive_IsActive") Or Not IsDeclared("KeeyAlive_Init") Or Not IsDeclared("KeeyAlive_Timeout") Or TimerDiff($KeeyAlive_Init) > $KeeyAlive_Timeout Then Return ;## Pause Process for the time remaining. ConsoleWrite("Keeping Alive for " & Int($KeeyAlive_Timeout - TimerDiff($KeeyAlive_Init)) & "ms" & @CRLF) Sleep($KeeyAlive_Timeout - TimerDiff($KeeyAlive_Init)) EndFunc #EndRegion Enjoy!
