Is there an alternative to TrayTip?

Recommended Posts

I'm just wondering, before I attempt to create something similar to TrayTip, are there any existing alternatives? Tray Tip is way too slow to open and close, I want something that I can use for debugging/user warnings/whatever. Kinda like consolewrite but built in part of the program so a user could see it too if I wanted to use it for that. 

Also I am looking for a 'TrayTip' kinda popup because I wouldn't want the program to wait for the popup to appear/disappear while it's running, but you could always run it as an exe seperately if you had to.

Hi @BatMan22.

Maybe something like:

If you want the toast to be displayed instantly do this:

$iToast_Time_Out = 1
$iToast_Time_In = 1

after _Toast_Set and before _Toast_Show in the example in Toast.zip.

I asked the question, kinda assuming it didn't exist and I got all excited about creating my own and I ran the toast demo and that idea is out the window. Lol. Thanks and Nicejob @Melba23

Also sidenote.. I'm stealing the code for your popup with the progress bar so.. thanks

Yeah, i ended up grabing that idea and creating my own popup, with an image too, and i just slide it in and out of the desktop.
