Changing trayIcon with internal autoIT ressources - (Moved)


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am wondering if it is possible to store and access different icon ressource in the AutoIT Exe.

I know that i can make that my app as an icon with :

#AutoIt3Wrapper_icon=Icon.ico

But i would like to have the possibility to change the tray icon depending on the status of the running app...

I know i could simply do it by accessing an external image/icon file, but i would like to use embedded ressources within the EXE if possible.

 

Thank you for your help :)

Moved to the appropriate forum, as the Developer General Discussion forum very clearly states:

OhBobSaget,

For one of my apps I add the icons to the executable like this:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=M:\Program\Au3 Scripts\BMP\Icons\BMP_Play_0.ico
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=M:\Program\Au3 Scripts\BMP\Icons\BMP_Play_1.ico
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=M:\Program\Au3 Scripts\BMP\Icons\BMP_Play_2.ico
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=M:\Program\Au3 Scripts\BMP\Icons\BMP_Play_3.ico
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=M:\Program\Au3 Scripts\BMP\Icons\BMP_Play_4.ico
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=M:\Program\Au3 Scripts\BMP\Icons\BMP_Play_5.ico
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=M:\Program\Au3 Scripts\BMP\Icons\BMP_Play_6.ico
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=M:\Program\Au3 Scripts\BMP\Icons\BMP_Play_7.ico
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=M:\Program\Au3 Scripts\BMP\Icons\BMP_Pause_0.ico
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=M:\Program\Au3 Scripts\BMP\Icons\BMP_Pause_1.ico
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=M:\Program\Au3 Scripts\BMP\Icons\BMP_Pause_2.ico
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=M:\Program\Au3 Scripts\BMP\Icons\BMP_Pause_3.ico
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=M:\Program\Au3 Scripts\BMP\Icons\BMP_Pause_4.ico
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=M:\Program\Au3 Scripts\BMP\Icons\BMP_Pause_5.ico
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=M:\Program\Au3 Scripts\BMP\Icons\BMP_Pause_6.ico
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=M:\Program\Au3 Scripts\BMP\Icons\BMP_Pause_7.ico
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=M:\Program\Au3 Scripts\BMP\Icons\BMP_Index.ico
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=M:\Program\Au3 Scripts\BMP\Icons\BMP_File.ico
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=M:\Program\Au3 Scripts\BMP\Icons\BMP_List.ico

And then assign their indices like this:

Global Const $iPlay_Icon = -5, $iPause_Icon = -13, $iIndex_Icon = -21, $iFile_Icon = -22, $iList_Icon = -23

Which allows me use lines like this within the code:

TraySetIcon(@ScriptFullPath, $iPause_Icon - $iIcon_Progress)

TraySetIcon(@ScriptFullPath, $iIndex_Icon)

TraySetIcon(@ScriptFullPath, $iFile_Icon)

I hope that helps.

Edit:

Sorry, the syntax for the directive has changed since I wrote and compiled that. The current version reads:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=                   ; Filename[,ResNumber[,LanguageCode]] of ICO to be added.
; Add extra ICO files to the resources
; Use full path of the ico files to be added
; ResNumber is a numeric value used to access the icon: TraySetIcon(@ScriptFullPath, ResNumber)
; If no ResNumber is specified, the added icons are numbered from 201 up

So you will need to adjust the assignment statements to match.

So if i understand correctly :

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=M:\Program\Au3 Scripts\BMP\Icons\BMP_Play.ico,1
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=M:\Program\Au3 Scripts\BMP\Icons\BMP_Pause.ico,2

Then...

Global Const $iPlay_Icon =1, $iPause_Icon =2

Then

TraySetIcon(...)

 

Is that correct ?

OhBobSaget,

Close - the icons will be 201 & 202 as explained in the Help file snippet I posted.
