Sorry - I've not used it myself - I just remebered the UDF and posted the first link that I found for it.

Perhaps taupe will find this thread or a PM might work...

The "SysTray_UDF.au3" located here:

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...pe=post&id=4436

requires the beta version of AutoIt located here:

http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/files/beta/autoit/

I was not sure from your posts which version of AutoIt you had - you need at least 3.1.1.66

I'm not using beta - so not much help.......

later...

Edit: Sure, fix it while I'm composing a post.... glad it is working for you.

This code seems to work, but the window is totally disabled, even the min/max/close buttons are gray; why?

Here is my code - this is a work in progress:

#include <Constants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

;#NoTrayIcon

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

TraySetOnEvent($TRAY_EVENT_PRIMARYDOUBLE, "SpecialEvent")
TraySetOnEvent($TRAY_EVENT_SECONDARYUP, "SpecialEvent")

$window = GUICreate("No Tray Menu")
GuiCreate("Dummy")
$hWnd = WinGetHandle("Dummy")
DllCall("user32.dll", "hwnd", "SetParent", "hwnd", $window, "hwnd", $hWnd)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hWnd)
GUISetState(@SW_ENABLE, $hWnd)

TraySetState(1)

While 1
    Sleep(10) ; Idle loop
If GUIGetMsg() = $Gui_Event_Close Then Exit
WEnd
Exit

; Functions
Func SpecialEvent()
    Select
        Case @TRAY_ID = $TRAY_EVENT_PRIMARYDOUBLE
            MsgBox(64, "SpecialEvent-Info", "Primary mouse button double clicked.")
        Case @TRAY_ID = $TRAY_EVENT_SECONDARYUP
   GUISetState(@SW_SHOWNORMAL, $hWnd)
TraySetState(2)
            ;MsgBox(64, "SpecialEvent-Info", "Secondary mouse button clicked.")
    EndSelect
EndFunc   ;==>SpecialEvent

Func ExitEvent()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>ExitEvent

rdwray,

Necroing a nigh-on 7 year old thread is NOT something we encourage - please do not make a habit of it. :oops:

And before you argue - you can see that the beta version at the time was v3.1.1.66. That is now so outdated that I am really quite surprised that the code still worked. :bye:
