Traytip event on click?

Recommended Posts



I have written a small script to message computers across the network via traytips instead of netsend (why? Why not :P ). I'd like to add functionality to the traytip so I can send a message like "This form has been updated, click here to browse to it!", and actually browse to the directory/url/etc.

Right now the script is reading input for the text and TTL of the tip. My guess is that I'd have to append the ini I'm creating that propogates the traytip. Any ideas? This script currently works perfectly without the desired additions, in tandem with a script that runs, checking for an ini file to output to a traytip.

First script - get data

;As more dells are added to the network, increase this variable to the highest dell # available

Global $HighestDellNumber = ;actual data

Global $Text

Global $ComputerToMap ;Variable for messaging only one Dell

Global $CurrentComputer ;Variable for looping through all Dells

Global $DellNumber = 0

Global $Time ; Variable to add a timeout on the popup message

;Request Computer Name

IniWrite("C:\%folder%\todotext.ini", "Timer", "time", """" & $Time & """")

If $ComputerToMap <> "All" Then

DriveMapAdd ( "T:", "\\"& $CurrentComputer &"\c$" ,"" ,"%user%", "%pass%")

;Display the successful attempt

Until $DellNumber == $HighestDellNumber




Second script - search for, output, and delete


Opt("TrayIconHide", 1) ; Hide systray icon


Global $File1

Global $File2

Global $Message

Global $Command

Global $Timer ;timer variable

Global $Timer2 ;timer variable

While 1

$File1 = FileOpen("c:\%folder%\%folder%\todotext.ini", 0)

$File2 = FileOpen("c:\%folder%\%folder%\todocommand.ini", 0)

If $File1 <> -1 Then

$Message = IniRead("c:\%folder%\%folder%\todotext.ini", "Message", "text", "NotFound")

$Timer = IniRead("C:\%folder%\%folder%\todotext.ini", "Timer", "time", "NotFound")

$Timer2 = $Timer * 1000

Opt("TrayIconHide", 0) ; unhide systray icon

TrayTip("I'm a title", "I'm the message", 5, 1) ;this is a fake tip to allow the real one to display

TrayTip("clears any tray tip","",0) ; clear false tip from memory

TrayTip("Message", $Message, 20, 1) ; load ini file

Sleep($Timer2) ; load variable for sleep


Opt("TrayIconHide", 1) ; Hide systray icon



If $File2 <> -1 Then

;do some other irrelevant stuff




Thank you in advance!

since no one else is replying... i thought about how you'd do that and all i can think of is detecting if the mouse is in that area and if the user clicks. it might be a good place to start. you could look into just clicking on the tray icon with the Tray functions or maybe another alternative if you don't really get anywhere.
