My new tray manager

11 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I just got finished with my new "Tray Manager"... It's not that big, because this is really just what makes it "work". While I left some other features out that I will add into this file in the future. Really, is all this is, is a GUI that opens or closes your drives E: and F: in like 3 different ways.

1. Buttons

2. Hotkeys

3. File>Open or Close

Hope you like it! :)

I uploaded the .EXE, the .au3, the HTML Help, and the Icon.

I origanally had the icon on the GUI but I'm not sure how to install the file inside the .EXE itself. Any suggestions would be nice! :)

EDIT: It's sort of like one of those little Windows programs that comes with your computer...

:idiot:

But good as your first script :D

I know the first thing I started was Msgbox() :)

Hey, you could bring some more dynamic to your script with "DriveGetType()".

So you check all letters through from A to Z and check the type and if it is a CDROM then you create a button or hotkey or menuitem with the letter...

As an idea...

So long :(

A good Idea!

But, I think there are something you can resolve. In your script, everybody should edit it for its computer, because different computer have different cd-drive. But I think the script can auto research how many cd-drive are there.

just a idea for myself.

Newbie question...

I'm trying to run the script in au3 format and it errors: Line 28, GUICreate("Tray Manager", 400, 300, -1, -1), Unknown function name.

Even if I run it from the Include folder where there is a copy of GUIConstants.au3

What am I missing?

Make sure you have this code in the au3 file...Just edit the file and replace the old code with this one, it may be the same, but let's just check.

**EDIT**: Does the .EXE version work??

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

The exe does work fine. Opens and closes my E drive. F is an old Zip drive.

I replaced all the code in GUIConstants.au3 with the code in your post, now when I try to run the script Win2k spits up "AutoIt has generated errors and will be closed by windows.... log file being created"

The code between the GUIConstants files was dramatically different.

-Scott

Edit: Just noticed a missing #include-once at the top of the GUIConstants code.

So I added it, now when I run I get Error: Line 53, Func closee (), Duplicate function name.

-Scott

Edit: Scratch last edit..I'm an idiot. :)

Brought my GUIConstants.au3 back from my backup.

Replaced all the code in Tray_Manager_beta.au3 with the code in your post.

Now when I run it barks a GUICreate error, and I see that I do not have a GUICreate.au3.

Is the latest GUI stuff available for download somewhere?

!?!?!?!?! YOU REPLACED the GuiConstants code!?!!?!? I only meant replace the Tray Manger code!!!!!

goto http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/files/...UIConstants.au3 and downlaod that and replace that with your gui constants...ONLY IF you replaced the gui constants file...by the way, do you have the unstable version of autoit or do you have the older version?

If you have v3.0.103 then tray manager should work fine...if you have an older version, than thats why it's not working, and thats why only the .exe is working =D

Ah, got it working!

I was using v3.0.102, which I though was the Current version

I didn't know there was a .103 version...

I backtracked from that URL you gave me to find it.

Installed .103 from the exe and now the script works fine.

You must be using something unique to .103...?

Thanks

Nah, it's just the new GUI Functions, trust me, when you see the GUI code it's like "Woah!" But then, you get used to it, at first I just looked at the help file, now I'm pretty god with it.

Good luck!
