Custom Pause menu with flashing icon

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I'd like to add a pause icon to a custom pause menu. What's more I'd like it to flash while the script is paused:

TraySetPauseIcon("shell32.dll", 12) ; Set the pause icon. This will flash on and off when the tray menu is selected and the script is paused.

I've found no how-tos about adding more icons as resources. At least, I know I'd have to specify it within the wrapper somehow.

Code of the script:

#include <TrayConstants.au3>

Opt("TrayMenuMode", 3)
Global $trayPause = TrayCreateItem("Pause")
Global $trayExit = TrayCreateItem("Exit")

PauseTray()

Func PauseTray()

    ;Pause in ON
    TrayItemSetText($trayPause, "Resume")
    ConsoleWrite("!Pause" & @LF)
    While 3
        Switch TrayGetMsg()
            Case $trayPause
                ExitLoop
            Case $trayExit
                Exit
        EndSwitch
    WEnd

    ;Pause if OFF
    TrayItemSetText($trayPause, "Pause")
    ConsoleWrite("+Resume" & @LF)
EndFunc   ;==>PauseTray

Could anyone give me a hint where should I place the TraySetPauseIcon line to make it work? I've played around with it for a while, but the icon doesn't change if script is paused...

      ; Allow time for icon to be seen
      Sleep(5000)
Next


; Delete the GUI
GUIDelete($hGUI)

Compile it and run the compiled exe. :)

Thanks Jos, this helps me how to specify additional icons. Although I'm looking for a solution just like what's in the help file, but don't know how to change my code to reflect the flashing behaviour of this example:

#include <TrayConstants.au3> ; Required for the $TRAY_ICONSTATE_SHOW constant.

Example()

Func Example()
    TraySetPauseIcon("shell32.dll", 12) ; Set the pause icon. This will flash on and off when the tray menu is selected and the script is paused.
    TraySetState($TRAY_ICONSTATE_SHOW) ; Show the tray menu.

    While 1
        Sleep(100) ; An idle loop.
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>Example

I've just figured it out, the full location was missing from wrapper :D
