start application in tray + tray menu

4 posts in this topic

hi guys,

i have been searching for this in the forum and on google, but no success.

i'm new to autoit and i'm pretty sure that what i want is easy.

my autoit script does a background wget download of a periodically renewed image.

the script should run in the background, no GUI etc.

i would like to have a tray icon for the script which allows the user the only action to exit the program (upon right or left click).

without user interaction, the program should run until windows shuts down (and in that case exit cleanly).

i appreciate any help!

autoit does it automaticly. you have an autoit tray thing when you run the script, unless you put

#NoTrayIcon in your script.

when you right click it, it pauses the script and offers you to either exit or unpause the script.
