File Description Remove in Tray Tip Balloon?

Recommended Posts


OK, I played around and made this function that does what I want.  
I have a dual monitor so set it to appear on my left monitor, this should just work for any setup but don't know.

I made the color of the popup background to match what is on my windows 10 setup.

For others that may want or need or prefer these tray notices to appear a certain way this is my end solution.   


#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <ColorConstants.au3>

Global $iconArray[4]  = ["", "16783",  "161", "240" ]

Notice("My Text Message","",0,1)
Notice("","This is a description",0,1)
Notice("Shiny Text Message","Nice Description",0,2)

Func Notice($message, $description, $timeout = 2, $icon=0)
    Local $popup = GUICreate("",350,60,(@DesktopWidth - 355),(@DesktopHeight - 150),$WS_POPUP+$WS_BORDER) ; title, width, height, left, top, style, exStyle, parent

    if($icon > 3) Then $icon = 0
    if($timeout < 1) Then $timeout = 2
    $timeout = $timeout * 1000

    if($icon > 0) Then GUICtrlCreateIcon("shell32.dll", $iconArray[$icon], 10, 7,43,43) ; filename, iconName, left, top, width, height, style, exstyle

    $theMessage = GUICtrlCreateLabel($message,65, 10, 300, 30) ; text, left, top, width, height, style, ex style
    GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 600, 0, "", 2) ; size, weight, attribute ( 2 = italic, 4 = underline, 8 = strike ), fontname, quality
    $theDescription = GUICtrlCreateLabel($description, 65, 32, 300, 30)
    GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 9, 100, 0,"",2) ;
    GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0xACAEAC)

    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $popup)

Notice("The Message","The Description",0,1)

Text Message, Description, Timeout or Sleep, Icon

Icons are  1 = Notice, 2 = Warning, 3 = Critical   though in Shell32.dll I could not find the same icon used in TrayTip for critical.

Essentially matching the TrayTip features minus the Title at top of the window because I personally don't want it so I removed or never added it in the first place.

Adding the ability to either add or not a description and update it at anytime in code versus only one time with TrayTip at compile time.
