timeout A rough estimate of the time the balloon tip should be displayed. (Windows has a min and max of about 10-30 seconds but does not always honor a time in that range.)

Return Value



TrayTip works for only Windows 2000/XP or better.

A Tray tip will close if the AutoIt tray icon disappears. Consequently, the TrayTip may not appear if AutoItSetOption("TrayIconHide", 1) is set or if the user has disabled balloon tips via registry settings!

Windows XP usually plays a sound when displaying a balloon tip. This sound can be disabled by adding 16 to the options parameter or by setting an empty title.

To clear a balloon tip that is being displayed, call another tip with an empty text string (and any title).


MsgBox, ToolTip, TrayIconHide (Option)


TrayTip("I'm a title", "I'm the message", 5, 1)
MsgBox(4096,"", "Press OK to see another tip.")
TrayTip("clears any tray tip","",0)
TrayTip("", "A different tray tip.", 5)
