Launch Function via Context Menu from Task Bar

I tried to find something on this, not much luck so far.  Something tells me there is a UDF for this however.

So the basic concept is that I want to have an always running script in the background so that I have an icon for it in the little tooltip/taskbar area, instead of the usual exit/pause options when you click on an autoit script I would like to call other functions in the script.

In this example the TaskbarFunc1 and TaskbarFunc2

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Terminate")

While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

Func Terminate()
    Exit
EndFunc

Func TaskbarFunc1()
    ProcessClose("DesktopInfo.exe")
EndFunc

Func TaskbarFunc2()
    ShellExecute("C:\PCInfo\DesktopInfo.exe")
EndFunc

Is something like that possible?

Better yet remove the exit/pause options as well just so they do not close it on accident.

ViciousXUSMC,

Do you mean something like this?

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Exit")

Opt("TrayOnEventMode", 1) ; Use event trapping for tray menu
Opt("TrayMenuMode", 3)    ; Default tray menu items will not be shown

TrayCreateItem("Func 1")
TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1, "TaskbarFunc1")
TrayCreateItem("Func 2")
TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1, "TaskbarFunc2")

While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

Func TaskbarFunc1()
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "TaskBar", "Func 1")
EndFunc

Func TaskbarFunc2()
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "TaskBar", "Func 2")
EndFunc

Func _Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc

Yes! Exactly like that :)

I knew it was going to be easy.

Had some users with so many icons they were behind my little computer info GUI at the top right corner of the screen, wanted to give them a way to close it temporarily and then open it again on demand.
