#NoTrayIcon

Opt("TrayAutoPause", 0)
Opt("TrayMenuMode", 1)
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
Opt("TrayOnEventMode", 1)

Func ConfigMenu()
    Sleep(5000)
    MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_RIGHT, 1580, 1180, 1, 50)
    Sleep(1000)
    MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 1400, 120, 1, 50)
EndFunc

ConfigMenu()

 

I just want to click on a tray icon and select a menu item. But it appears the script pauses even with the 'Opt("TrayAutoPause", 0)'. I've tried various combinations of the Opts there, as well as various includes.

anoncoward,

You need to create a tray menu with items to select - look at TrayCreateItem in the Help file.

Melba23,

Thank you for your reply.

So TrayCreateItem modifies the icon and I can add or remove items from it and when used with TrayMenuMode 1 I can remove the pause/exit options and only have my new items?

So I'm guessing this keeps it from pausing when it first right clicks my tray icon?

No, it modifies the pop-up menu attached to the icon - the icon itself remains as before. As to the remainder of your questions - yes.

So now I've got:

 

#NoTrayIcon
#include <GUIToolbar.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Opt("TrayMenuMode", 3)
TrayCreateItem("Radio 1", -1, -1, $TRAY_ITEM_RADIO)
TrayItemSetState(-1, $TRAY_CHECKED)


Func ConfigMenu()
    Sleep(5000)
    MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_RIGHT, 1580, 1180, 1, 50)  <========== It doesn't move past this.
    Sleep(1000)
    MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 1400, 120, 1, 50)
EndFunc

ConfigMenu()

 

I can remove the #NoTrayIcon, and see the new menu without pause/exit but it appears to still be pausing.

I just copy/pasted your code from the last post and added a ";" before your comment.

Waits 5 seconds, moves mouse to the bottom right of my screen and opens the right click menu, waits 1 second and moves up the screen. What did you expect it to do?

As an aside, if you are planning to use this to open and select items from the tray, you must appreciate your script is going to become dependent on screen resolution and the exact position of the tray? Which does not sound very nice to me...


Problem solving step 1: Write a simple, self-contained, running, replicator of your problem.

Well, I'm actually using PixelSearch to select the right color icon. When I run it, mine doesn't move after rightclicking on the tray icon. I'm using Windows 10. I'll have to double check my version of AutoIT.

anoncoward,

I am confused. You asked about how to alter the script icon and now I see that you have added the #notrayicon directive, which makes having a tray menu somewhat moot. You also appear to be using a function to get the menu to appear, which is a very strange way to get to a popup menu to as you would usually expect it to react to user input. So just exactly what are you trying to do?

#NoTrayIcon
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <Timers.au3>
#include <AutoItConstants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <TrayConstants.au3> ; Required for the $TRAY_CHECKED and $TRAY_ICONSTATE_SHOW constants.

TraySetClick(0)
Opt("TrayMenuMode", 3) ; The default tray menu items will not be shown and items are not checked when selected. These are options 1 and 2 for TrayMenuMode.
TrayCreateItem("Radio 1", -1, -1, $TRAY_ITEM_RADIO)
TrayItemSetState(-1, $TRAY_CHECKED)

; Variable Defs
$5sec = 5000
$30sec = $5sec * 6
$1min = $30sec * 2
$5min = $1min * 5

Func ChangeVPN()
    $yCoord = 1408
    $coord = PixelSearch( 1360, 1160, 1599, 1199, 0x00FF0D)


    Sleep($5sec)
    MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_RIGHT, $coord[0], $coord[1], 1)
    Sleep(1000)
    MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, $yCoord, 121, 1, 50)
    Sleep(1000)
    MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, $yCoord, 201, 1, 50)
    MsgBox(0, "X and Y are:", $coord[0] & "," & $coord[1])  ;; for testing

EndFunc

ChangeVPN()

 

Here is the actual code. Sorry, I was at work and didn't have my exact code. The coords are 1373, 1174.

I use Private Internet Access and want to switch VPNs periodically.

To get the coords I added:

MsgBox(0, "X and Y are:", $coord[0] & "," & $coord[1])

After the last MouseClick line in my function, and it pops up, however my mouse doesn't move from the right click on my PIA tray icon (skipping the other two mouse clicks.

anoncoward,

I am still confused. When using the #notrayicon directive, you do not get an AutoIt script icon in the tray and so you should not be able to pause the script by clicking on it. Which icon in the tray are you actually trying to click?

And your script is probably not progressing because a pop-up menu is usually blocking and nothing will happen until you have selected something within it - which your script does not seem to do. Perhaps if you list the actions you want to take when changing VPN we might suggest a suitable method - using a HotKey seems to be a good possibility.
