Hello.

There is a way to show text directly on system tray, instead of an icon?

Thanks in advice.

You can use GDI+ for it.

Make the text in GDI+ and make this script work for you.

This code makes a icon of it, and that is what you can show in the systray.

It's a function I use in code of my own, you need to adjust it to make it work for your project, this is a good start.

Func _CreateIconFile($file_in, $file_out)
    Local $a_hBitmap[2], $hIcon, $hPng, $sPath, $tData, $pBits, $g_hDll, $aDim

    $hPng = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile($file_in)
    $aDim = _GDIPlus_ImageGetDimension($hPng)

    $tData = _GDIPlus_BitmapLockBits($hPng, 0, 0, $aDim[0], $aDim[1], $GDIP_ILMREAD, $GDIP_PXF32ARGB)
    $pBits = DllStructGetData($tData, 'Scan0')
    If Not $pBits Then Return 0

    $a_hBitmap[0] = _WinAPI_CreateDIB($aDim[0],$aDim[1])
    If Not @error Then
        _WinAPI_SetBitmapBits($a_hBitmap[0], $aDim[0] * $aDim[1] * 4, $pBits)
    EndIf
    _GDIPlus_BitmapUnlockBits($a_hBitmap, $tData)
    _GDIPlus_ImageDispose($hPng)

    $a_hBitmap[1] = _WinAPI_CreateANDBitmap($a_hBitmap[0])

    $hIcon = _WinAPI_CreateIconIndirect($a_hBitmap[0], $a_hBitmap[1])
    If $hIcon Then
        _WinAPI_SaveHICONToFile($file_out, $hIcon)
        _WinAPI_DestroyIcon($hIcon)
    EndIf
EndFunc

I don't know who the original author for this code is.

I Think it was UEZ but I'am not sure of it.

romulocarlos,

This thread might prove a useful read. Note: you will need to change $ghGDIPDll to $__g_hGDIPDll in the _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateHICONFromBitmap function.

Here an example how to create a small animation in the tray. You can modify it accordingly to display text instead.

 

@nend: the code doesn't look like my coding style. ;)

Thanks, people.

These are codes I don't understand for now. I'm a begginer, but I'll save this thread for reference.

See ya!

Looking more into your code, I can understand something, but not all.

As I understand $file_in must be an png image file. I suspect $file_out will be the resulting image (the text) to be shown in system tray. I don't understant the $g_hDll, because it appears once on code (isn't used). What is 'Scan0'?

I'm right? Can you explain in more details?

Thanks in advice!

EDIT: I found this , but don't know how to use with your function...
