Hello,
 
is it possible to get the state of a checkbox in a system tray menu?

6dba22e6dd9ecdebdc5654c4e.png

its german and i want to check if the status of the "Bereit" button is check or uncheck.

Other option is the hanging lamp change to red if unchecked and green when check.

So if its possible to get this information its also OK

Stumbled across this> post by Melba23 on how to right click an icon in the system tray.

This will help you get you in the right direction (at least pulling up the menu to check the state). :)

Hello,

yes i found that and it works to open the menu and change the state.

But i doesnt find in that post the solution to check the state before change (if already check then dont change)

derelky,

junkew seems to think that his UIAutomation UDF might be useful in this situation - but I leave it to you to wade through the thread. ;)

I just modified Melba23's post and updated with another function he made (>link).

This will return the state to the console instead of the text. It will also allow you to wait till you've gotten the menu pulled up to hit a hotkey to find the item state.

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIToolbar.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <GuiMenu.au3>

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "ex") ; <<<<< ESCAPE hotkey (will run the Func ex() when escape is keyed on)
HotKeySet("{END}", "Quit") ; <<<<<<<< added this to quit out of this script

    Global $hSysTray_Handle, $iSystray_ButtonNumber
    Global $sToolTipTitle = "" ; Add the text of your tray icon here <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

While 1

WEnd

;put this into function so that you can run anytime with hotkeyset
Func ex()


    $iSystray_ButtonNumber = Get_Systray_Index($sToolTipTitle)

    If $iSystray_ButtonNumber = 0 Then
        MsgBox(16, "Error", "Is the App running?")
        Exit
    Else
        Sleep(250)
        _GUICtrlToolbar_ClickButton($hSysTray_Handle, $iSystray_ButtonNumber, "right")
        Sleep(250)
        Send("{UP}") ; Move your cursor around on the menu here <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
        ConsoleWrite(GetPopUpSelText() & @CRLF) ; This will read the currently selected item <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
    EndIf

EndFunc   ;==>ex

Func Get_Systray_Index($sToolTipTitle)

    ; Find systray handle
    $hSysTray_Handle = ControlGetHandle('[Class:Shell_TrayWnd]', '', '[Class:ToolbarWindow32;Instance:1]')
    If @error Then
        MsgBox(16, "Error", "System tray not found")
        Exit
    EndIf

    ; Get systray item count
    Local $iSystray_ButCount = _GUICtrlToolbar_ButtonCount($hSysTray_Handle)
    If $iSystray_ButCount = 0 Then
        MsgBox(16, "Error", "No items found in system tray")
        Exit
    EndIf

    ; Look for wanted tooltip
    For $iSystray_ButtonNumber = 0 To $iSystray_ButCount - 1
        If StringInStr(_GUICtrlToolbar_GetButtonText($hSysTray_Handle, $iSystray_ButtonNumber), $sToolTipTitle) <> 0 Then ExitLoop
    Next

    If $iSystray_ButtonNumber = $iSystray_ButCount Then
        Return 0 ; Not found
    Else
        Return $iSystray_ButtonNumber ; Found
    EndIf

EndFunc   ;==>Get_Systray_Index

Func GetPopUpSelText()

    Local $aPopUp_List = _WinAPI_EnumWindowsPopup()
    Local $hWnd = $aPopUp_List[1][0]
    Local $sClass = $aPopUp_List[1][1]
    If $sClass = "#32768" Then ; This is a "standard" Windows API popup menu
        $hMenu = _SendMessage($hWnd, $MN_GETHMENU, 0, 0)
        If _GUICtrlMenu_IsMenu($hMenu) Then
            $iCount = _GUICtrlMenu_GetItemCount($hMenu)
            For $j = 0 To $iCount - 1
                If _GUICtrlMenu_GetItemHighlighted($hMenu, $j) Then
                    Return _GUICtrlMenu_GetItemState($hMenu, $j) ;<<<<<<<<<<<< here we change to find the state
                EndIf
            Next
        EndIf
    EndIf
    Return ""

EndFunc   ;==>GetPopUpSelText

Func Quit()
    Exit 
EndFunc

Hopefully that helps you on your journey. :)
