Palm install question

Recommended Posts

I made a script that will install the Palm software on the PC and also set the conduits so it will sync with Outlook. Works fine. My problem is I want to script it so after the install I can change the types of connections that is turned on. Default from the install is USB, but I need to have the serial connection also turned on. I can easily do this by clicking on the system tray icon and clicking what I want, but depending on the PC, the icon may be in a different place. I tried searching the registry, and other places to see if I can set it, but this is the only way I can find.

My question is this: Has anyone scripted turning something on from a icon in the system tray, and if so, how?

I looked at trayitemgethandle, but I didn't research it that much. Am I on the right path?

Unfortunately, TrayItemGetHandle only applies to your script's own TrayItems, not those of other apps.

Check if the window you need already exists (hidden), in which case you can bypass the tray icon.

If not, look at _SysTrayIconPos in tuape's SysTray UDF. You can try clicking based on those coordinates.

Thanks! Works perfectly. Did this

$oldMatchMode = Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)
$oldChildMode = Opt("WinSearchChildren", 1)
$class = "classname=Shell_TrayWnd"
$hControl = ControlGetHandle($class, "", "Button2")
$posTray = WinGetPos(_FindTrayToolbarWindow()) 
MouseMove($posTray[0], $posTray[1])
If $hControl <> "" And ControlCommand($class, "", $hControl, "IsVisible","") Then
    ControlClick($class, "", $hControl)
$index = _SysTrayIconIndex("Hotsync.exe")
If $index <> -1 Then
    $pos = _SysTrayIconPos($index)
    If $pos = -1 Then Exit
    MouseMove($pos[0], $pos[1])
ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & @CRLF & "Pos[0]: " & $pos[0] & "$pos[1]: " & $pos[1])
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", $oldMatchMode)
Opt("WinSearchChildren", $oldChildMode)
