(solved)First time trying to create custom tray icon menus

Recommended Posts

MattHiggs

Like stated above, I have never really attempted to create tray icon menus simply due to the fact I find them annoying (if I want to minimize a program, I will click "minimize", but if I want to close it, I don't want it to minimize to task bar and require me to close it there), but thought I should try incorporating them into latest script to at least say that I can use them.  However, I am running into a couple of snags/facts I would like to verify.  1) Since tray icons come with their own "GetMsg" function, I just want to verify that, while the continual paging of the tray menu item would still occur within some kind of loop, can the tray menu item events be declared outside and separate from the GUI events?  eg.

While 1
    $tmsg = TrayGetMsg ()
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg(1)
    Switch $tmsg
        Case $TrayMenu
        Case $settings1
            If TrayItemGetState ( $settings1 ) = 65 Then
                IniWrite ( $path & "\infostore.ini", "Tray Settings", "No Notifications", "$TRAY_CHECKED" )
            ElseIf TrayItemGetState ( $settings1 ) = 68 Then
                IniWrite ( $path & "\infostore.ini", "Tray Settings", "No Notifications", "$TRAY_UNCHECKED" )
            Else
            EndIf

        Case $settings2

            If TrayItemGetState ( $settings2 ) = 65 Then
                IniWrite ( $path & "\infostore.ini", "Tray Settings", "On top", "$TRAY_CHECKED" )
                GUISetStyle ( BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX, $WS_THICKFRAME, $WS_TABSTOP), $WS_EX_TOPMOST, $Form1_1 )
                GUISetStyle ( BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $DS_SETFOREGROUND), $WS_EX_TOPMOST, $Form2 )
                GUISetStyle ( -1, $WS_EX_TOPMOST, $Form3 )
                GUISetStyle ( BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX, $WS_THICKFRAME, $WS_TABSTOP), BitOR($WS_EX_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, $WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE, $WS_EX_TOPMOST), $Form3_1 )
                GUISetStyle ( -1, $WS_EX_TOPMOST, $Form4 )
                GUISetStyle ( -1, $WS_EX_TOPMOST, $Form5 )
            ElseIf TrayItemGetState ( $settings2 ) = 68 Then
                IniWrite ( $path & "\infostore.ini", "Tray Settings", "On top", "$TRAY_UNCHECKED" )
                GUISetStyle ( BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX, $WS_THICKFRAME, $WS_TABSTOP), 0, $Form1_1 )
                GUISetStyle ( $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, 0, $Form2 )
                GUISetStyle ( $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, 0, $Form3 )
                GUISetStyle ( BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX, $WS_THICKFRAME, $WS_TABSTOP), BitOR($WS_EX_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, $WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE), $Form3_1 )
                GUISetStyle ( $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, 0, $Form4 )
                GUISetStyle ( $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, 0, $Form5 )
            Else
            EndIf

    EndSwitch

    Switch $nMsg[1]
        Case $Form1_1
            Switch $nMsg[0]
                Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                    ;ProcessClose ( "pastebutt.exe" )
                    ;ProcessClose ( "PasteButtonhk.exe" )
                    Exit
                EndSwitch
          EndSwitch
     Wend

My second question also involves the above code, but specifically the "Ini" functions which attempt to read a "tray" state flag from an Ini file.  The following is code located at very beginning of script:

Const $path = @AppDataDir & "\filler"
Opt ( "TrayMenuMode", 1 )
OnAutoItExitRegister ( "refresh" )
$nonote = False
$TrayMenu = TrayCreateMenu ( "Settings" )
$settings1 = TrayCreateItem ( "Turn off notifications", $TrayMenu )
TrayItemSetState ( -1, IniRead ( $path & "\infostore.ini", "Tray Settings", "No Notifications", "$TRAY_UNCHECKED" ) )
$settings2 = TrayCreateItem ( "Keep Window on top", $TrayMenu )
TrayItemSetState ( -1, IniRead ( $path & "\infostore.ini", "Tray Settings", "On top", "$TRAY_UNCHECKED" ) )

So the idea is that whenever the user "checks" one of the tray icon menu options, its current "state" will be input into the "ini" file, so that the state of the particular tray menu item will be in the same state as the user left it when the script is launched next.  However, this is not occurring: the ini file contains the "state" flag like it should, but the tray menu item remains unchecked at startup.  Furthermore, the checking or unchecking of "setting1" is not being recognized, as the windows' extended styles do not obtain the "Topmost" flag like they should had it worked.  I get the feeling I'm not getting the "states" of the tray menu items correct.  Any advice?

  1. It should be only one loop but 2 switch...endswitch regions in this loop are ok.
  2. the value for OnTop isn't correct. OnTop=4  is correct. You used the IniWrite false, it must be:
    IniWrite ( $path & "\infostore.ini", "Tray Settings", "On top", $TRAY_UNCHECKED) )

    or:

    IniWrite ( $path & "\infostore.ini", "Tray Settings", "On top", 4) )

    Also the IniRead should be:

    TrayItemSetState ( -1, Int(IniRead ( $path & "\infostore.ini", "Tray Settings", "On top", $TRAY_UNCHECKED ) ))

OHH.  Ok.  I was under the impression that the only values that any of the INI functions would accept where strings and would at a later point need to be converted to whatever the final variable it should be.  I will give it a shot.

Yeah.  So this didn't work.  I altered the code as instructed:

Const $path = @AppDataDir & "\filler"
Opt ( "TrayMenuMode", 1 )
OnAutoItExitRegister ( "refresh" )
$nonote = False
$TrayMenu = TrayCreateMenu ( "Settings" )
$settings1 = TrayCreateItem ( "Turn off notifications", $TrayMenu )
TrayItemSetState ( -1, Int ( IniRead ( $path & "\infostore.ini", "Tray Settings", "No Notifications", $TRAY_UNCHECKED ) ) )
$settings2 = TrayCreateItem ( "Keep Window on top", $TrayMenu )
TrayItemSetState ( -1, Int (IniRead ( $path & "\infostore.ini", "Tray Settings", "On top", $TRAY_UNCHECKED ) ))

and

While 1
    $tmsg = TrayGetMsg ()
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg(1)
    Switch $tmsg
        Case $TrayMenu
        Case $settings1
            If TrayItemGetState ( $settings1 ) = $TRAY_CHECKED Then
                IniWrite ( $path & "\infostore.ini", "Tray Settings", "No Notifications", $TRAY_CHECKED )
            ElseIf TrayItemGetState ( $settings1 ) = $TRAY_UNCHECKED Then
                IniWrite ( $path & "\infostore.ini", "Tray Settings", "No Notifications", $TRAY_UNCHECKED )
            Else
            EndIf

        Case $settings2

            If TrayItemGetState ( $settings2 ) = $TRAY_CHECKED Then
                IniWrite ( $path & "\infostore.ini", "Tray Settings", "On top", $TRAY_CHECKED )
                GUISetStyle ( BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX, $WS_THICKFRAME, $WS_TABSTOP), $WS_EX_TOPMOST, $Form1_1 )
                GUISetStyle ( BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $DS_SETFOREGROUND), $WS_EX_TOPMOST, $Form2 )
                GUISetStyle ( -1, $WS_EX_TOPMOST, $Form3 )
                GUISetStyle ( BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX, $WS_THICKFRAME, $WS_TABSTOP), BitOR($WS_EX_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, $WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE, $WS_EX_TOPMOST), $Form3_1 )
                GUISetStyle ( -1, $WS_EX_TOPMOST, $Form4 )
                GUISetStyle ( -1, $WS_EX_TOPMOST, $Form5 )
            ElseIf TrayItemGetState ( $settings2 ) = $TRAY_UNCHECKED Then
                IniWrite ( $path & "\infostore.ini", "Tray Settings", "On top", $TRAY_UNCHECKED )
                GUISetStyle ( BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX, $WS_THICKFRAME, $WS_TABSTOP), 0, $Form1_1 )
                GUISetStyle ( $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, 0, $Form2 )
                GUISetStyle ( $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, 0, $Form3 )
                GUISetStyle ( BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX, $WS_THICKFRAME, $WS_TABSTOP), BitOR($WS_EX_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, $WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE), $Form3_1 )
                GUISetStyle ( $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, 0, $Form4 )
                GUISetStyle ( $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, 0, $Form5 )
            Else
            EndIf

    EndSwitch

    Switch $nMsg[1]
        Case $Form1_1
            Switch $nMsg[0]
            EndSwitch
            EndSwitch
            Wend

 

The only difference is that now there is no data being saved to the INI file (attached).  Ini Files can only accept strings as forms of input and can only return strings, like I stated above, so I am going to change it back.  Anybody else have any suggestions?

As for where I got the 65 and 68 for the GetState values, I had a message box setup up to give the state of the tray menu item whenever TrayGetMsg received the handle, and it kept including the "enabled" (64) flag as well, which is why I tried that.

I never said this, but StateValue 65=

  • $TRAY_CHECKED 1 Menuitem will be checked
  • + $TRAY_ENABLE 64 Menuitem will be enabled
if BitAND(TrayItemGetState,$settings1,$TRAY_CHECKED)=$TRAY_CHECKED Then IniWrite ( $path & "\infostore.ini", "Tray Settings", "No Notifications", $TRAY_CHECKED )

writes No Notifications=1 in INI.

My bad.  I wrote that.  I don't even know how that happened.  But that is the process I took to try and find out the correct "state" of the tray menu item in order for the functions to start occurring.  I have tried both pairs (1 and 4) and (65 and 68) but neither seem to work.

The code looks the exact same with one small addition:

While 1
    $tmsg = TrayGetMsg ()
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg(1)
    Switch $tmsg
        Case $TrayMenu
        Case $settings1
            #Region --- CodeWizard generated code Start ---

;MsgBox features: Title=Yes, Text=Yes, Buttons=OK, Icon=None
MsgBox($MB_OK,"State",TrayItemGetState ($settings1))
#EndRegion --- CodeWizard generated code End ---

            If TrayItemGetState ( $settings1 ) = $TRAY_CHECKED Then
                IniWrite ( $path & "\infostore.ini", "Tray Settings", "No Notifications", $TRAY_CHECKED )
            ElseIf TrayItemGetState ( $settings1 ) = $TRAY_UNCHECKED Then
                IniWrite ( $path & "\infostore.ini", "Tray Settings", "No Notifications", $TRAY_UNCHECKED )
            Else
            EndIf

        Case $settings2

            If TrayItemGetState ( $settings2 ) = $TRAY_CHECKED Then
                IniWrite ( $path & "\infostore.ini", "Tray Settings", "On top", $TRAY_CHECKED )
                GUISetStyle ( BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX, $WS_THICKFRAME, $WS_TABSTOP), $WS_EX_TOPMOST, $Form1_1 )
                GUISetStyle ( BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $DS_SETFOREGROUND), $WS_EX_TOPMOST, $Form2 )
                GUISetStyle ( -1, $WS_EX_TOPMOST, $Form3 )
                GUISetStyle ( BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX, $WS_THICKFRAME, $WS_TABSTOP), BitOR($WS_EX_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, $WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE, $WS_EX_TOPMOST), $Form3_1 )
                GUISetStyle ( -1, $WS_EX_TOPMOST, $Form4 )
                GUISetStyle ( -1, $WS_EX_TOPMOST, $Form5 )
            ElseIf TrayItemGetState ( $settings2 ) = $TRAY_UNCHECKED Then
                IniWrite ( $path & "\infostore.ini", "Tray Settings", "On top", $TRAY_UNCHECKED )
                GUISetStyle ( BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX, $WS_THICKFRAME, $WS_TABSTOP), 0, $Form1_1 )
                GUISetStyle ( $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, 0, $Form2 )
                GUISetStyle ( $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, 0, $Form3 )
                GUISetStyle ( BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX, $WS_THICKFRAME, $WS_TABSTOP), BitOR($WS_EX_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, $WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE), $Form3_1 )
                GUISetStyle ( $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, 0, $Form4 )
                GUISetStyle ( $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, 0, $Form5 )
            Else
            EndIf

    EndSwitch

When the msg box pops up with the state of the tray menu item, it always has the "enabled" flag added in

There are other ways to go about this can accomplish the same thing.  I just wanted to know if it is possible to do it this way.

Is the TrayItem enabled?

  • Yes then it's correct
  • No, post a runable reproducer instead of snippets

and next please edit your post's

And just to confirm, enabled simply means that it is not greyed out and "clickable" yes??

Last try: this is not a chat, so edit your posts instead of creating a new one every 5 minutes.

Edit1: Here's a older project, just updated to restore the TrayItemsettings: numpad.au3

Restore is done in #78 to 84, save settings is done in 98,99,103,104.

So you see it's possible to store other variables then strings in INI-files, but you must convert it back.

 

Edit2: the tool simulates a numeric pad on keyboard, so use ^o to turn this feature off.

      Good evening everyone
      First, I want to apologize with you for the title not very clear, but I thought a little bit on which title to set at the thread, and this is the one that came in mind.
      Now, let me explain what I'm trying to understand.

      I am making an application ( with n clients ), with an SQLite Database, which has a Main form, and n sub-forms... 
      Since these sub-forms are called several times, because they are used to add or update records to the Database, I put the code that generates the GUI of these sub-forms in Functions.
      There are two sub-forms which are "treated" as two main forms, since even them have n sub-forms, which perform various tasks.
      Where am I stucked?

      For the Main form I created a Status Bar, in order to display messages ( add/delete/update/search results ), and it works perfectly with all the forms which don't have other sub-forms.
      For the two forms, which indeed have n sub-forms, I created two separated Status Bars, which are (re)created everytime I call the function that then displays the form.
      Practically, I can't set icons to these two Status Bars, and I don't know why.
      I'm really sorry that I don't feel clear enough, so, here you are an example of what I am saying.
      I recreated exactly what my script does:
      #include <GuiButton.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiStatusBar.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) Global $frmSubForm, _ $txtSubFormField, _ $sbSubFormStatusBar, _ $objSB_IconError = _WinAPI_LoadShell32Icon(109), _ $objSB_IconInformation = _WinAPI_LoadShell32Icon(277) #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= $frmMainForm = GUICreate("Main Form", 300, 300, -1, -1) GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "ExitApplication") $sbMainStatusBar = _GUICtrlStatusBar_Create($frmMainForm) $btnCreateSubForm = GUICtrlCreateButton("Create Sub Form", 105, 110, 75, 41, BitOR($BS_CENTER,$BS_VCENTER,$BS_MULTILINE)) GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "GenerateSubForm") GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 400, 0, "Arial") _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetSimple($sbMainStatusBar) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($sbMainStatusBar, "") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $frmMainForm) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### While 1 Sleep(100) WEnd Func ExitApplication() Exit EndFunc Func GenerateSubForm() #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= $frmSubForm = GUICreate("Sub-Form", 300, 300, -1, -1, -1, -1, $frmMainForm) GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "DeleteSubForm") $txtSubFormField = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 0, 0, 100, 20) $btnCheckSubFormField = GUICtrlCreateButton("Check Field", 105, 110, 75, 41, BitOR($BS_CENTER,$BS_VCENTER,$BS_MULTILINE)) GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "CheckSubFormField") GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 400, 0, "Arial") $sbSubFormStatusBar = _GUICtrlStatusBar_Create($frmSubForm) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetSimple($sbSubFormStatusBar) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($sbSubFormStatusBar, "") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $frmSubForm) GUISetState(@SW_DISABLE, $frmMainForm) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### EndFunc Func DeleteSubForm() ; Declared Globally => $frmSubForm GUIDelete($frmSubForm) GUISetState(@SW_ENABLE, $frmMainForm) EndFunc Func WriteToStatusBar($sbStatusBar, $objSB_Icon, $strText) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetIcon($sbStatusBar, 0, $objSB_Icon) _GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($sbStatusBar, $strText) ConsoleWrite("Icon Handle: " & $objSB_Icon & @CRLF) EndFunc Func CheckSubFormField() ; Declared Globally => $txtSubFormField If GUICtrlRead($txtSubFormField) = "" Then ; Declared Globally => $sbStatusBar WriteToStatusBar($sbSubFormStatusBar, $objSB_IconError, "Field NOK.") Else WriteToStatusBar($sbSubFormStatusBar, $objSB_IconInformation, "Field OK.") EndIf EndFunc The text is set, but icon is not.
      Could someone please tell me why?
      Thanks everyone in advance  

      Best Regards.

      Hi, everybody
      I look for GUI whose behavior similar to the message of an email client or antivirus
      In other words:
          Any PC screen able to calculate the size
          To consider the Task bar size
          To find the lower corner on the right/below and to nestle on it

      Notes:
      In GUI the GUICtrlCreateEdit field (as option) - that can be received and displayed through variable information
      Thanks a lot
      PS
      I use the translator, excuse if something is not clear

      Hi,
      I'd like to show a progress bar for an operation performed by an external program my script is running silently, I want to show it in a GUI I created using the GUICtrlCreateProgress but I have no idea how to do it.
      The important thing to point out is that there's no way of knowing how long the external program will run, as it is a file splitter and it depends on the size of file it splits and the split parts size.
      Can someone point me in the right direction or give me an example how to do so?
      This is my RunWait command:
      RunWait($MYFILES1 & '\fsplit.exe -split ' & $Size & ' mb ' & $File & " -f " & $File & "." & $extension) It uses multiple variables declared and set earlier in the script, how will I got about having the progress of that command shown using GUICtrlCreateProgress ? Is it possible?
      Thank you.
