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

Recommended Posts

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

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.

writes No Notifications=1 in INI.

This worked.  Thank you.

      Often I need to create a panel to monitor a lot of things (users, files, items etc) so I use this piece of code to create a dynamic grid of buttons.
      The number of buttons is variable, and it's related to the size of the gui, the size of the buttons and the distance between buttons.
      Every "button" is a set of three with a real button stacked on the top of two labels, imagine reading a .CSV file or an array or a database and displaying all the things using the labels (Text and COLOR too) and clickin' on the relative button you can call further info on the item or call a particular function.
      So you can decide the number of the buttons, the width of the buttons, and also the distance  between buttons.
      It's quick and dirty, simple  and very improvable (I know..) so fell free to play with the code.
      ;TEST ;GOL-Grill ;Grill test/template ; (c) 2019 NSC ; V.0.6 #Region ;************ Includes ************ #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <ProgressConstants.au3> #include <_GOLLOG.au3>; NSC first UDF #EndRegion ;************ Includes ************ Dim $agButton[1] Global $ButtonU, $rProgress, $form1, $labeltot, $ntotButtonS ; the number of buttons is variable based on the guisize, the button size and button distance, three examples.... ;Global $guiwidth = 850, $guiheight = 500, $buttonW = 150, $buttonHDistance = 10, $buttonVDistance = 20 ; SMALL GUI / BIG BUTTONS <- try it !

      Script lightly updated with better management of buttons size and distance.

      Hi,
      I have an issue with a script being used for a Toddler group register. 
      I list the kids, with their carer and additional carer in ComboLists so a number of carers can be registered per kid. 
      When page down to a second page of kids, the carers are correctly displayed but when I roll the mouse over the combo boxes it reverts to those on the first page.
      I am using the following style codes with the combo boxes - BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN, $CBS_SIMPLE) and they are only holding 2 or 3 entries.
      Here is the code for the pagedisplay function which is called for each line of the registration page (10 lines, currently 55 kid records)) 
      Func PageDisp($L)
      ;Clears display once all records displayed
          If $L > $KidsFound Then

      Hello,
      i searched the forum for something near, but with no success...
      I have Combobox control with $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST style with some items (for example (one, two, nine).
      When i want to select the item, using keyboard, the items are selected only on First letter base (for example when i type "on", Nine is selected).
      Is there some trick to force the combobox with $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST style to accept more than the First letter during selecting the items from the list?
      Mi wanted result is the same as for example - when you type "fir" on the desktop, Firefox is automatically selected.
      Thank you so much.

      I'm trying to implement a scrolling list of controls. I have it sort of working using the GUIScrollBars_Ex UDF by @Melba23 found here. I also want to be able to tab through the controls, which I have accomplished by adding $WS_EX_CONTROLPARENT to the child GUI. The problem is that with that style applied, the scrollbar doesn't act like a scrollbar, instead it acts as a title bar to the child GUI letting you drag the it around (and you can even "maximize" it by double clicking).
      Any ideas?
      #include <GUIConstants.au3> #include "GUIScrollbars_Ex.au3" $iButtonCount = 30 $hParent = GUICreate('Example', 300, 230) $hChild = GUICreate('', 300, 200, 0, 0, BitOR($WS_CHILD, $WS_TABSTOP), $WS_EX_CONTROLPARENT, $hParent) For $i = 0 To $iButtonCount GUICtrlCreateButton('Button in list', 0, $i*30, 300, 30) Next GUISwitch($hParent) GUICtrlCreateButton('More Buttons', 0, 200, 150, 30) GUICtrlCreateButton('More Buttons', 150, 200, 150, 30) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hParent) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hChild) _GUIScrollbars_Generate($hChild, 100, $iButtonCount * 30+20) While GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE WEnd
