I don't really want to change them but I would like to add one. that's the Idea (light buld) so that I can use them as hints.

Do you mean the icon in the ToolTip-bubble ? If so, then check out ToolTip's 5th parameter.

If you're thinking of using a custom icon there, then I can say that haven't seen that done

before, meaning it might not be possible.

Not really. You can change the icon by using TraySetIcon(). Edited by Helge

Theoretically, yes. The icon flag for the ToolTip() function should accept an HICON. You will have to use DllCall() and the Windows API to get your HICON. However, once you make it that far, you should be able to pass it instead of one of the pre-defined flags to use that custom icon.

Thanks for the info@Valik. I might just create another GUI to display a tip on startup to take care of that part but mouse-over tips could be best solved using your method I think.. I'll see what I can do with it Edited by GEOSoft
