two scripts, just only one tray icon

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm a newbie. A kind user informed me that AutoIt does not support multi threading.

So, I would ask: is it possible to have two scripts managed from the same only one tray icon?

That is, I think it is always possible to run two scripts each having its proper tray icon with, for example, the item "exit". Is it possible to run two scripts that refer to the same tray icon with the items "exit 1" and "exit 2"?

Forgive me if I have made a candid question.

How come you don't want to run this as 1 script?. What exactly are you trying to do?.

How come you don't want to run this as 1 script?. What exactly are you trying to do?.

I need to do some operations in the same time: 1) continuously monitoring file changes in a folder, and 2) interacting with the user via GUI and copying some files.

Since it is not possible to have such two tasks running simultaneously, I have to compile two separate scripts, and have two different icons in the system tray.

Is it possible to "combine" the functions of such icons in only one icon?

I hope my rough description is sufficiently clear. Thanks for your patience.
