Show only a tray icon?

6 posts in this topic

Group,

I created a script to perform various functions on servers within my network. The script stays running until I exit the script, meaning I have a GUI up all the time. With that in mind, is it possible to hide the task bar icon and rely only on the system tray icon to bring the script back to the forefront (as the active window)? When I click on the icon in the system tray, I have only 'script paused' or 'exit' as an option and neither brings the script window back to the forefront of the desktop. Was just wondering if this was possible to do.

Thanks,

ZK

Just add an Extended Style called $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW like:

GUICreate("Timer",120, 50,-1,-1,-1,$WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW)

Is there a way to change the extended style after GUICreate?

I know there is a GUICtrlSetStyle for Controls? What about a GUISetStyle(windowID, style [,exStyle]) for the GUI itself?

@JP: No? :D ... yes:

you could try something like this:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
$gui = GUICreate("Timer",120, 50,-1,-1,-1,$WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW)
$GWL_EXSTYLE = -20
GUISetState()
Sleep(3000)
DllCall("User32.dll","int","SetWindowLong","hwnd",$gui,"int",$GWL_EXSTYLE,"long",0)
GUISetState(@SW_HIDE)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
Sleep(3000)

Ok, it's not the best way but possible :idiot:
