Is this Systray-behavior possible?

Recommended Posts

Yggdrasil

I want to know if the following Systray-icon behavior is possible using Auto-It v3: Left-click restores a minimized GUI and right clicking it shows a tray-menu. I know other (non-AutoIt) programs with this behavior, but I wasn't able to recreate it.

The main problem is that if I create a menu that it appears no matter if I left-click or right-click the systray-icon. And I'm also unable to prevent this by looking for the return value "$TRAY_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN" of TrayGetMsg() and restoring the GUI before the menu appears.

So I thought of only creating the menu when I read $TRAY_EVENT_SECONDARYDOWN, but in this case the menu won't appear before I either left- or right-ckick the systray-icon again. And it once again doesn't matter if it's the left or right mouse button.

This means my problem is basically to be able to set/force which event actually creates a systray-menu it seems. But from what I read in the manual there seems to be no way to do this or am I missing something?

TraySetClick()?

TraySetClick()?

Thanks, this was exactly what I was looking for, no idea though how I could miss that function in the help-file. Works like a charm now :)
