XP PC won't display TrayTip()

Recommended Posts

flyingboz

I have a XPPsp2 workstation which cannot display the TrayTip balloon.

I get the annoying burp (which is able to be turned off by adding 16 to the option), and in the following

cribbed sample the icons switch as expected.... HOWEVER.. No TrayTip() balloon.

:)

I have tested with current production release, and the 3.2.5.7 beta, and run both compiled and not.

I have tried on other xp and w2k workstations, which work as expected. If you have a few seconds,

please try this sample code and report back if you have a failure to display the balloon tip -- I'd love

to pin down the driver / software that is kicking my butt.

UPDATE: I rebooted in SAFE MODE, and the problem persists????

Suggestions welcome.

$count = 0;
$max   = 10;
While $count < $max+1
    TraySetToolTip("Icon " & $count & " Of " & $max);
    TraySetIcon(@SystemDir & "\shell32.dll",$count);
    TrayTip("Icon " & $count & "/" & $max,"Icon " & $count & " Of " & $max,"",4); information TIP fails to appear on my development machine.
    $count = $count + 1  
    Sleep(500);

It worked for me. Make sure you don't have this registry key set:

Yep. That was the kicker. This value is also able to be set via TweakUI , in the

Taskbar and Start menu section.

Thanks!!!

Now I get to write a UDF that scans the regkey, and mods it if necessary :)
