changing the AutoIt tray icon

Recommended Posts

Bert

Is there a way to change the AutoIt tray icon? I want to keep it visible, but change it to a different icon. I wrote a application (UNPlus) to work with a program we use, and I want to have a special icon in the tray while UNPlus is running. Is this possible?

Hi!

The tray icon depends on the icon of the program itself. So just use "Compile with options" and speciy your icon.

Perhaps use Resource Explorer to get the icon of the original app if you need this one.

Maybe you can use this command (see also the help file)

TraySetIcon ( [iconfile [, iconID] )

The example from the help file

Opt("TrayMenuMode",1)  ; Default tray menu items (Script Paused/Exit) will not be shown.

$exititem      = TrayCreateItem("Exit")

TraySetState()

$start = 0
While 1
    $msg = TrayGetMsg()
    If $msg = $exititem Then ExitLoop
    $diff = TimerDiff($start)
    If $diff > 1000 Then
        TraySetIcon("Shell32.dll",Random(0,100,1))
        $start = TimerInit()
    EndIF
WEnd

Exit

I hope this helps you.

right click on the au3 file in the explorer and click the respective option. Very simple.
